The King and his sons William and Harry will follow the Queen’s coffin as it is transported from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Palace tomorrow.
The Queen will stay in the Arch Room at Buckingham Palace overnight before being taken to lie in her state before her funeral on Monday.

Also participating in the procession will be Anne’s son Peter Phillips and her husband, Vice-Admiral Sir Tim Lawrence, as well as the Duke of Gloucester and Earl of Snowdon.
The Queen Queen, Princess of Wales, Countess of Wessex and Duchess of Sussex will travel by car.
The procession will leave Buckingham Palace at 2.22pm in a chariot of the Royal Horse Artillery of the Royal Forces.
The Coffin Road will take through Queens Gardens, The Mall, Horse Guards Parade, Horse Guards Arch, Whitehall, Parliament Street, Parliament Square and New Palace Yard.

It was the first time the brothers had been seen together since the Platinum Jubilee Service in June when they sat apart from each other.
It’s also the first time Harry and Meghan have been part of a royal family event since stepping back from royal duties and moving to the United States in early 2020.
King Charles wished the couple well in his first address as king on Friday night, after William and Catherine were named the Prince and Princess of Wales.
“I also want to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives abroad,” King said.
Before the procession, the King addressed Parliament in Westminster for the first time as King.

Charles thanked Parliament and said he was moved by his mother – who set an example of the selfless duty he said he would faithfully follow.
Mourners have already begun queuing to see the Queen lying in Westminster Hall, with arrangements being made to get to the line all the way from the hall to Bermondsey in south London.
