The fight for the coffin

They did it again, the British. In queue. Several of them stood there all night, and some even stood in line for several days to get the right view when the carriage with Queen Elizabeth's coffin drove past after her funeral. On Monday 19 September it was the people's turn to say goodbye. Everyone could watch. But not everyone couldn't see anything. Around Hyde Park in London the day became a battle of the best spots. A historic, if somewhat distant event.
