The Queen's Children Stand Guard Over Her Coffin In Emotional Moment

The royals stood together in Westminster Hall for 10 minutes as they guarded Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin on Friday evening. Charles stood at the head of the late Queen’s coffin, Andrew at the foot, and Anne and Edward on either side. The royal men wore military uniforms, while Anne performed the solemn moment in royals and blues.

Anne was accompanied by her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, while the Countess of Wessex was present to support her husband Prince Edward.

The Queen has been lying in state since Wednesday and thousands of members of the public have headed to London in order to pass the coffin, waiting in a queue for hours.

The four royals had previously stood guard over their mother’s coffin when she laid in St Giles’ Cathedral on Monday.

While the Queen’s four children began their vigil, which lasted for ten minutes between 7.46 to 7.56pm, the Queen Consort and the Countess of Wessex sat on seats opposite the coffin while the vigil took place as a show of support.

A further vigil is expected to take place on Saturday, with all of the Queen’s grandchildren taking part.

Prince William will stand at the head of the coffin and will be joined by brother Prince Harry and cousins, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Zara Tindall, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn.
