Queen Elizabeth funeral: World says goodbye to Her Majesty

The world’s eyes were fixed on Britain today as the funeral for Queen Elizabeth took place, with media around the globe captivated by the unmatched scale, pomp and ceremony of the occasion.

‘Few leaders receive such an outpouring of love’, Norway’s public broadcaster NRK said on its front page while Germany’s Tagesspiegel lamented that ‘we will never see anything like it again.’

Some 500 leaders from around the world crammed into Westminster Abbey for a service which was likened to a ‘global who’s who’ while 2million packed the streets and an estimated 4billion tuned in from home for what was dubbed the ‘most-followed event in history’.

Charles’s tears for his mother as the national anthem played caught the attention of headline-writers, as did the simple handwritten card he had placed atop Elizabeth’s coffin as it was paraded through the streets.
