Charles, Harry & Meghan on the floor
A picture is worth 1000 words
09/14/2022, 2:47 PM
Sometimes a snapshot is enough to draw a complete atmospheric image. Such a snapshot is now available at Buckingham Palace. King Charles III, Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan can be seen through an illuminated window. You can literally feel the heaviness weighing on them.
These are difficult and stressful times for the royal family. This is also apparent from a photo from Tuesday evening, which makes the gloomy atmosphere in Buckingham Palace almost tangible.
A floor-to-ceiling window allows Prince Harry and his wife, Duchess Meghan, to walk down a flight of stairs with serious faces and holding hands. In front of them is Harry’s father, King Charles III, with his head bowed.
On Tuesday, the family received Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin after it flew from Scotland to England on a Royal Air Force plane. As reported by CNN, it was the most tracked flight of all time, according to the Flightradar24 website. About five million people watched online as the late Queen was flown from Edinburgh to London.
Public farewell to the Queen
The grand procession in London is scheduled for today, Wednesday, with the coffin containing the late Queen being carried by horse-drawn carriage from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Palace. Charles and other family members will follow the coffin on foot before putting it down in public.
Until early Monday morning, the public can then personally say goodbye to the Queen who died last Thursday at the age of 96. Up to two million mourners are expected.
Finally, Monday afternoon, Elizabeth II is buried in a state funeral. Numerous members of other royal houses in the world are expected, as well as the heads of state and government of dozens of countries. Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier takes part in the ceremony on behalf of Germany.
