There also will be screening sites at several towns and cities across the U.K.

the new queen consort, paid tribute to the queen in a video message, saying the monarch “carved her own role” as a “solitary woman” on a world stage dominated by men.

“She’s got those wonderful blue eyes, that when she smiles, they light up her whole face. I will always remember her smile. That smile is unforgettable,” said Camilla, wife of King Charles III.

To avoid disappointment, please do not set off to join the queue,” the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport said in a tweet, adding the line was already at a 13-and-a-half-hour wait and could increase. For four days, thousands of people have joined the miles-long wait to see the monarch’s coffin in the Palace of Westminster. The crowds are the latest manifestation of a nationwide outpouring of grief for the only monarch most Britons have ever known.
