Queen Elizabeth II‘s funeral began with a procession of her coffin on a gun carriage. Following the procession, she will lay until the morning of her funeral. During the ceremonies of her funeral, all members of the royal family are required to wear military uniforms; the only exceptions to this rule are non-working royal Prince Andrew, who will only wear one as a mark of respect at the Queen’s final funeral vigil, according to Harper’s Bazaar.
