Pictures: Moment Queen Elizabeth’s coffin arrived Westminster Abbey

The coffin of Queen Elizabeth II has arrived Westminster Abbey in London.

The coffin arrived at Westminster Abbey on Monday for a grand state funeral attended by 2,000 guests including leaders from around the world, as the country say farewell to Britain’s longest-serving monarch.

In a tradition dating back to Queen Victoria’s funeral in 1901, the state gun carriage bearing the coffin was hauled to the abbey by Royal Navy sailors, followed in a solemn procession by King Charles III and other senior royals.
