Where will Queen Elizabeth II be buried?

Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin is being taken on a gun carriage from Westminster Abbey for a last procession through the heart of London.

The coffin is being transported to Windsor, outside the British capital, where the former monarch will be laid to rest later Monday.

King Charles III and other senior royals are marching behind the coffin to Wellington Arch at Hyde Park Corner. Tens of thousands of people are lining the route.

Gun salutes are being fired in nearby Hyde Park, and Big Ben is tolling at one-minute intervals during the procession.

The coffin is to be taken by hearse to Windsor, where the queen will be interred alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, who died last year.

Windsor Castle is where Elizabeth spent much of her time. She will be laid to rest at a private family service.

Elizabeth will not be buried at Westminster Abbey because there is not enough space.

There are 30 British monarchs who have their final resting place at Westminster Abbeybut no monarch has been buried there since 1760 due to space limitations.

The lack of space has caused several monarchs, including Charles II, Queen Anne, Queen Mary II and her husband, King William III, to be buried without a monument to their names in the historic church.
