Royal fans queue and camp to see Queen's coffin

STORY: Truus Nayman said that the queen always put duty first before her family, which she found inspiring as a mother.

The queen was due on Tuesday evening to be transported from Edinburgh to London where she will stay for one night in Buckingham Palace before being taken to Westminster Hall.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to file past the queen's coffin in a round-the-clock lying-in-state from Wednesday evening to early on the day of her funeral on September 19.

Queen Elizabeth II died in her Scottish home of Balmoral last Thursday. Her oldest son, Charles, automatically became King and leader of the Commonwealth.
