Countless people wait for hours to say goodbye to the late queen. Suddenly, a waiter breaks out of the line and rushes to the queen’s coffin. According to eyewitnesses, the police were able to arrest the man within seconds.

Incident at Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin: A man was arrested Friday evening who, according to witnesses, ran towards the coffin in the Westminster Hall of the British Parliament in London. According to media reports, the Metropolitan Police said the man had been arrested following a disturbance. A witness told Sky News that someone pushed her seven-year-old niece aside, ran to the coffin and tried to lift the royal standard that lay over the coffin. The police caught him “within two seconds”.

The live TV broadcast was suspended at the time and a view from outside the Parliament was shown instead. The Guardian, citing witnesses, reported that the man jumped from the line, managed to climb the steps and touched the coffin. The Metropolitan Police said the man had been arrested for violating the Public Order Act and is currently in custody, according to Britain’s PA news agency. Sky News quoted a parliament speaker as saying a waiter had moved from the queue to the jetty called the catafalque.

The people of Britain have another chance this weekend to say goodbye to their monarch with a visit to Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin. The coffin will remain in Westminster Hall until Monday morning, for the state funeral for the Queen, who has reigned for 70 years. Since Wednesday, countless people have taken the opportunity to pause at Elizabeth II’s coffin. This requires them to queue for hours in a long line along the Thames.

Elizabeth II passed away on Thursday, September 8 at the age of 96 at her Scottish estate Balmoral Castle. Her coffin was taken to the Scottish capital Edinburgh on Sunday and to London on Tuesday evening. Hundreds of monarchs, heads of state and government from around the world are expected in London for the state funeral next Monday.
