Queen Elizabeth II's Funeral: As the queue reached full capacity, it was closed to new entrants, BBC reported, adding that at its longest, the wait time to pay tribute to the Queen was more than 24 hours.
As UK mourned the demise of its longest-reigning monarch, for some the only monarch they have known all of their lives, huge queues were seen along the banks of the River Thames, where people waited to pay their respects to the Queen lying-in-state at the Westminster Hall.
As the queue reached full capacity, it was closed to new entrants, BBC reported, adding that at its longest, the wait time to pay tribute to the Queen was more than 24 hours while the queue's maximum length was 10 miles.
People were warned they would need to stand for many hours with little opportunity to sit down, as the queue is constantly moving.
UK government tracker informed that the queue was finally closed late on Monday morning ahead of the funeral.
Queen Elizabeth II’s is lying-in-state at the Westminster Hall, the oldest building on the parliamentary grounds, since Wednesday this week as people filed past her coffin to pay their respects.
Queen Elizabeth II died peacefully last Thursday. She was 96.
