Lady Sarah shared a close bond with the Queen

Her late Majesty's coffin was placed in the historic Bow Room within her official London residence for one night, before the procession took place the following day to move her to Westminster Hall.

The coffin left Buckingham Palace at 2.22pm. Crowds watched as the cortege made the journey through central London - along Queen's Gardens, The Mall, Horse Guards and Horse Guards Arch, Whitehall, Parliament Street, Parliament Square and New Palace Yard.

The Queen's funeral is scheduled to take place on Monday 19 September at Westminster Abbey in what is expected to be an extremely emotional service.

Whilst the public are not able to attend the funeral, royal fans will be able to pay their respects at Westminster Hall where the late monarch will lie-in-state for four days.

After her funeral, Her Majesty will be laid to rest at the King George VI memorial chapel, the resting place of her parents and sister, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, and Princess Margaret.
