Queen’s funeral: Full guide to the gun carriage and the main procession

The Queen’s coffin, topped with the Royal Standard, the Imperial State Crown and the Sovereign’s orb and sceptre, was at the centre of the procession carried on the State Gun Carriage of the Royal Navy. The carriage was last seen in 1979 for the funeral of Prince Philip’s uncle, Lord Mountbatten, and was used for the Queen’s father, George VI, in 1952.
