  • Queen's Coffin Possession To Westminster Hall

    The attached video shows the Queen's Coffin Procession to Westminster Hall, the music is that of the Funeral March which is at from memory 75 paces per minute and for information in days gone by a Police Constable on foot patrol the regulation pace was 80 paces per minute.

    The number of police officers on duty lining the route must have been in the hundreds which I reckon could not have been all provided by the Metropolitan Police alone and so I'm wondering if any of the County Forces were brought in to assist and maybe the MOD Police, the Civic Nuclear Constabulary and the various Port Authority Police? I did notice some City of London Police and British Transport Police present.

    I noticed that all of the police officers lining the procession route were all standing with their arms folded behind their backs at the at ease position which I reckon was part of the drill.


    King Charles leads the procession with members of the Royal Family to Westminster Hall as Queen Elizabeth’s coffin leaves Buckingham Palace for the last time...

      The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.

            Amidst the pageantry and occasion 8 young men silently went about their duty. The weight of the world on their shoulders, the glare of the world on them, but they were flawless. They did themselves, their families and our country proud. Thank you.​- Carla Lockhart MP
