Tilda Swinton cuts a somber figure as she bows her head as she surveys the Queen’s coffin

Tilda Swinton cut a somber figure as she bowed her head as she visited the Queen’s coffin at Westminster Hall in London.

The British actress, 61, joined the five-mile line of members of the public who had queued for an estimated nine hours this week.

In footage from the BBC’s coverage, which began circulating on social media on Saturday, Tilda was seen in all black as she reached the coffin and paused for a few seconds to pay her respects to the late monarch.

The Queen died at her beloved Balmoral Castle in Scotland on Thursday at the age of 96.

Her coffin traveled to London on Tuesday to be laid out ahead of her funeral on Monday.

Crowds have joined the queue that stretched for miles along the River Thames to pay their respects to the late King.

A number of British celebrities lined up to view the Queen’s coffin, including TV presenter Susanna Reid.

The Good Morning Britain anchor queued for more than seven hours to see the Queen’s coffin at Westminster Hall on his first public day this week.

The broadcaster, 51, took to Twitter to announce that she and her mother Sue had paid their respects to the late monarch while she was in state.

She described the “historic” moment as “majestic and peaceful” as she revealed she had joined the mourners in the huge lines.

She wrote: “Evening – along with my dear mother and her very good friend I have just lived a moment in history – witnessing the Queen lying in state at Westminster Hall. Simultaneously majestic and peaceful.”

It is estimated that the number of people making the journey could reach more than 350,000, with people from all over the world expected to visit London to pay their respects.

Meanwhile, Amanda Holden made her way to Westminster Hall on Friday to chat with members of the public who were queuing to see the Queen’s coffin.

The 51-year-old presenter, who normally hosts Heart FM Breakfast, traded the studio for the crowd of somber Brits for the news show.

Sharing clips from her visit to Instagram, the TV personality wrote that among the crowd there were “friendships forever forged in shared grief.”

Amanda cut a solemn figure as she joined the crowd, some of whom had waited over ten hours to pay their respects.

On Monday, Holly shared how she was “really touched” by the messages her children wrote to the Queen after her death, and admits she had urged them to write letters to help them process the news.

The 41-year-old presenter encouraged her three children with producer husband Dan Baldwin – Harry, 13, Belle, 11, and Chester, seven – to put down their feelings in writing to pay their respects after visiting Buckingham Palace over the weekend .

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby cut a somber figure on Friday as they filmed a clip for Tuesday’s episode of This Morning at London’s Westminster Hall.

The presenters of This Morning donned all black ensembles, with Holly, 41, in a face mask as they entered the historic building where the late monarch lay in state after her death last week.

The TV duo entered a separate queue for the press and were ushered into a press box.

A source told MailOnline: “They weren’t able to pay their respects to the Queen in the same way as the public queues, but they were filming in an area reserved for the press.

“This morning’s Friday program has been canceled in favor of ongoing ITV coverage ahead of the Queen’s state funeral. The program will be back on screens on Tuesday.’

Phillip, 60, opted for a smart black suit and tie for the visit, with the presenter wearing a sad expression as he followed his co-star.
