Queen Elizabeth’s coffin arrives Buckingham Palace

Published

THOUSANDS of mourners lined up through the night to pay their respects to Queen Elizabeth II in Edinburgh, Scotland as the United Kingdom continued a week of pageantry to mark the death of its longest-serving monarch.

  The queen’s coffin arrived at London’s Buckingham Palace more than a day before a line began forming there of those who want a chance to bid farewell to the queen when she lies in state at Parliament later this week.

  Meanwhile, her eldest son, King Charles III, is already undertaking the task of shoring up the monarchy throughout U.K, travelling to Belfast in Northern Ireland on Tuesday, to meet political leaders, receive condolences and attend a prayer service.

  In a sign of how far the territory has come since the height of the ‘troubles,’ representatives of Sinn Fein — the Irish nationalist party with historical links to the Irish Republican Army — met the king and attended the memorial events for a queen whose rule they sought to cast off.
