Queue To See Queen Lying In State Reaches 11 Hour Wait And Stretches Back Five Miles

The wait to reach Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin is now more than 11 hours and the queue stretches at least 4.4 miles – but many say the long wait is worth it.

Before Her Majesty is laid to rest during her state funeral on Monday, September 19, Westminster Hall is open 24 hours a day for people to pay their last respects.

There are three days left to see her lying in state until the doors of the historical landmark close to visitors at 6.30am on Monday.

The prospect of showers later today also does not seem to have deterred people arriving from all corners of the country.

Nurse Melanie Pickman, 50, left her home in Swansea at 11am to join the back of the line just before 3pm yesterday.

The mum-of-three said: ‘My sons think I’m mad because I have come to London to stand in a queue which some people say could be 30 hours long.

‘Last night I thought about it and I made the decision to come first thing this morning. I just thought that I needed to come.
