The Queen’s final resting place was due to be alongside her late husband Prince Philip, sister and parents in Windsor’s St George’s Chapel, following a private service.

Premier David Burt and Governor Rena Lalgie were among many world leaders and dignitaries that gathered in the capital, offering condolences and paying last respects, with the pair captured signing the Book of Condolence at Lancaster House once part of the St James Palace complex which is managed by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Bermuda’s flag could been seen flying among those of the 14 current British Overseas Territories as the funeral procession progressed.

Bermuda’s London Office posted a video tribute on Twitter depicting visits to the Island by the Queen in November 1953, February 1975, March 1994 and November 2009.

During the televised spectacle many onlookers could be seen weeping and seeking support in the clutches of one another, while some raised up their children to witness the historical occasion..

Thousands lined the streets around Westminster Abbey, many having camped overnight to secure prime viewing spots, with a hush falling over the crowds as the queen’s coffin came into sight.

A ‘Moment of Reflection’ was observed in Bermuda on Sunday, at 4 pm, with a ‘Service of Thanksgiving’ to mark the queen’s passing set to take place at the Anglican Cathedral on Saturday, September 24, starting at 11 am.
