“It was challenging to walk yesterday,” William told well-wishers in a video captured by Sky News. “It brought back some memories. It’s one of those moments where you think to yourself, ‘I prepared myself for this,’ but I’m not ready. It’s kind of weird… because We knew she was 96 years old.”

King Charles III, Anne, Princess Royal, Prince Andrew, Duke of York and Edward, Earl of Wessex, hold a vigil near the coffin of their mother, Queen Elizabeth II, as it stands on the cataplank at Westminster Hall.

The monitoring of grandchildren in Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin comes a day after King Charles III, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward stood together.

Queen Elizabeth II will lie in state at Westminster Hall until the morning of Monday, 19 September, the day of her majesty’s funeral.

London Police said the funeral would be the biggest single policing event ever, surpassing even the 2012 Summer Olympics and the Platinum Jubilee of the Queen in June, celebrating her 70 years on the throne.

“The number of officers, police personnel and everyone who supported the operation is really very high,” said Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Stuart Cundihe.

The coffin of Queen Elizabeth II is taken to Westminster Hall to be laid in state.

A two-minute silence will be observed across Britain on Monday at the end of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, giving the British public across the country a chance to pay tribute to the late monarch.
