The Queen

Windsor overnight rehearsals take place for Her Majesty the Queen's funeral

Rehearsals for Her Majesty the Queen's funeral continued overnight in Windsor, where she will be laid to rest beside her late husband the Duke of Edinburgh.

More than five thousand military personnel are taking part in the Queen's funeral.

It will be a career-defining day before an expected record-breaking global audience.

The Queen's final journey after the service at Westminster Abbey will involve the cortège carrying the coffin to Windsor, proceeding up the Long Walk before a committal service at St George's Chapel. 

More than 700 members from the Household Division will accompany the State Hearse down the Long Walk and through the gates of Windsor Castle.

It will be the last time the nation will see Her Majesty's coffin.

The Queen will be buried beside the Duke of Edinburgh on Monday evening after a private service.

For the personnel involved, it will be the biggest event of their military careers, laying to rest their own Commander-in-Chief, a monarch they served for so long.
