Queen Elizabeth II will be buried in Windsor with her late husband Prince Philip, Buckingham Palace has said.

The longest-reigning British monarch died last Thursday in Scotland, sparking a wave of mourning across the country.

Over the weekend, a large crowd gathered on the side of the road as his car was driving from Balmoral Estate to Edinburgh.

After being brought to London, the Queen’s coffin now lies in state at Westminster Hall. Thousands of people queued up for hours to pay tribute to the popular emperor.

Officials estimate that 750,000 members of the public could see the coffin before it ends early Monday morning in the state.

The state funeral of the late sovereign will take place on Monday at 11 a.m. in Westminster Abbey, the same church where Elizabeth was coronated in 1953. Dozens of world leaders are expected to travel to the British capital for the historic occasion.

On Thursday, Buckingham Palace confirmed further details about Monday’s funeral and the ceremony later that day at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.

The final post will be heard at the end of the state funeral service followed by a national two-minute silence.

The Queen’s body will then travel by gun carriage in a procession to Wellington Arch in Hyde Park Corner, with Big Ben trolling every minute in her honor.

A state chariot will carry his coffin to Windsor Castle, where a more solemn procession will take place. This will be followed by a service at St George’s Chapel, ending the public ceremonial order in Windsor.

Later, a private burial service would be conducted by the Dean of Windsor, attended by King Charles III and his family.

The Queen will be buried in the King George VI Memorial Chapel with the Duke of Edinburgh, her late husband of 73 years. Her parents and sister, Princess Margaret, were also buried there.
