Queen’s Guard Collapses In Front Of Her Coffin

In front of hundreds of mourners in the Palace of Westminster, a member of the Royal Guard surrounding the coffin of Queen Elizabeth II collapsed on Wednesday, September 14. The incident occurred when the people filed into Westminster to honour their Queen.

Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin arrived at Westminster Hall from Buckingham Palace on Wednesday and it was placed on the raised platform known as a catafalque. Thousands of mourners viewed the Queen’s catafalque and paid their respects to the monarch who died on September 8, at the age of 96. It is during this, that a Royal guard dressed in uniform in front of the Queen’s coffin collapsed from the podium.
