Senior Royals arrive for Queen's funeral

STORY: Shortly before 11 a.m. (1000 GMT), the oak coffin, covered in the Royal Standard flag with the Imperial State Crown on top, was placed on a gun carriage and pulled by naval personnel to Westminster Abbey for her funeral.

Among the 2,000 in the congregation were some 500 world leaders, from U.S. President Biden and Emperor Naruhito of Japan to South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and Mark Brown, prime minister of the Cook Islands.

Elizabeth died on September 8 at her Scottish summer home, Balmoral Castle.
