Queen’s coffin queue closed for six hours as king greets mourners in Wales

King Charles III and his three siblings have held a 15-minute vigil next to the coffin of their mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The Vigil of the Princes came as the wait to see the late monarch in state in London’s Westminster Hall broke for at least 22 hours, with ambulance teams treating 435 mourners since the queue opened two days ago.

Forty-two people waiting to see the Queen’s casket have been hospitalized, suffering head injuries after passing out, said to be responsible for the vast majority of incidents witnessed by London Ambulance Service staff .

Two women were also allegedly sexually assaulted, and a 19-year-old man charged with related charges appeared in court on Friday.

Earlier, on a visit to the Senedd, King Charles recalled his late mother’s love for Wales while speaking in both English and Welsh: “Throughout all the years of her reign, the land of Wales could not have been closer to the heart of be my mother. ”

Accompanied by Camilla, the queen consort, the new monarch was met by a small number of anti-monarchist protesters who were holding signs and booing as they arrived at Cardiff Castle.
