The Queen’s children stand vigil

King Charles stands vigil by his mother’s coffin alongside his siblings, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and Princess Anne.

Charles, Princess Anne, Princes Andrew and Edward, attired in military uniforms, stood in silence with their heads bowed for the 15-minute vigil at the historic Westminster Hall where the coffin of the late monarch has been lying since Wednesday.

Most of the other members of the British royal family, including some of the queen’s great-grandchildren, watched from a gallery.

    LONDON, Sept 16 (Reuters) – King Charles and his siblings stood vigil by the coffin of their late mother Queen Elizabeth on Friday as tens of thousands of mourners queuing to pay their final respects during her lying in state were told they faced a wait of up to 24 hours.

    [. . .] Despite the warning of how long it would take to reach the building, mourners continued to join a well-organised line that stretches along the south bank of the Thames then over the river to parliament’s Westminster Hall, knowing their wait would last through the night when temperatures were forecast to be cold.

    “We have been overwhelmed by the tide of emotion that has engulfed us and the sheer number of people who have gone out of their way to express their own love, admiration and respect to such a very special and unique person,” Prince Edward, the queen’s youngest son, said in a statement.
