The Queen's coffin has arrived at Buckingham Palace.
Mourners cheered and clapped as the hearse carrying Her Majesty travelled down Constitution Hill and around the Queen Victoria Memorial before driving through the gates of the palace and through the central arch into the quadrangle.
The hearse slowed down as it approached the gates and outriders stopped with their heads bowed at the end of the journey, while a police officer at the gate saluted.
People cheered “hip hip hooray” after the coffin drove under the arch.
Many people lining the street put down their umbrellas as a sign of respect while some could be seen wiping tears from their eyes.
While others were seen taking photos with their cameras.
The news broke last week that Her Majesty sadly passed away at her home in Balmoral, Scotland, on Thursday (8 September).
In a statement from its official Twitter account, the Royal Family said the 96-year-old had died 'peacefully'.
Over the weekend, Queen Elizabeth's coffin made the journey from Balmoral to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, ahead of being placed in St Giles' Cathedral for 24 hours to allow the public to pay their respects.
The late monarch's children, King Charles III, Princess Anne, Andrew and Edward have accompanied her the entire way.
In a statement today (13 September), Princess Anne said: "I was fortunate to share the last 24 hours of my dearest Mother’s life. "It has been an honour and a privilege to accompany her on her final journeys. Witnessing the love and respect shown by so many on these journeys has been both humbling and uplifting. We will all share unique memories.
"I offer my thanks to each and every one who shares our sense of loss. We may have been reminded how much of her
presence and contribution to our national identity we took for granted.
"I am also so grateful for the support and understanding offered to my dear brother Charles as he accepts the added responsibilities of the monarch.
"To my mother, The Queen, thank you."
Following his mum's death, Charles was proclaimed the country's new monarch, with a series of events held around the country.
In his first address as the head of state, the 73-year-old said: "I speak to you today with feelings of profound sorrow.
"Throughout her life, Her Majesty The Queen – my beloved Mother – was an inspiration and example to me and to all my family, and we owe her the most heartfelt debt any family can owe to their mother; for her love, affection, guidance, understanding and example.
"Queen Elizabeth was a life well lived; a promise with destiny kept and she is mourned most deeply in her passing. That promise of lifelong service I renew to you all today."
