It was in this location the Queen and Prince Philip were married in 1947 and is also where her coronation took place in 1953.

The Queen’s funeral procession route

According to the official website of the British Royal Family, on the morning of the funeral, the Lying-in-State will end and the coffin will be taken in procession from the Palace of Westminster to Westminster Abbey, where the state funeral service will take place.

Following that, the coffin will travel in procession from Westminster Abbey to Wellington Arch.

From Wellington Arch, the coffin will travel to Windsor and once there, the state hearse will again travel in procession to St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, where a committal service will take place.
