This weekend, the lying in state queue at Westminster Hall continues as people pay their respects to the Queen and two Royal guests joined those mourning.

Today (September 17), King Charles III and the Prince of Wales visited the queue and stopped to meet people who were waiting in the queue.

As the pair emerged, hundreds of people in the line at Lambeth, south London, cheered and applauded.

Several were also heard shouting “God Save the King” and “God Save the Prince of Wales” as Charles and William walked by.

Many took photographs and those closest shook hands with the King and the heir to the throne.

Prince William thanked people who had queued for hours to pay their respects to the late monarch.

This comes just two days before the Queen’s funeral on Monday, September 19.
