Long queues say goodbye to Greece's former king

STORY: Inside the chapel, mourners passed briefly by the coffin, draped in a Greek flag, kissing it. One woman wept, a priest blessed it, while another man rose from his wheelchair to touch it.

The funeral service will be led by the Archbishop of Greece Ieronymos, at the larger cathedral.

Royals from across Europe, including from Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and Britain, were on the guest list of some 200 that were to attend the funeral.
