The BBC said that starting on Wednesday afternoon, London time, it would be providing a live webcast of Queen Elizabeth II's funeral procession in London.
In a statement, the U.K. public service broadcaster said it would provide “a dedicated live stream of Her Majesty The Queen’s lying-in-state for those who want to pay their respects, but who cannot come to London, or who are physically unable to queue.”
The live stream will be accessible on various platforms, including the BBC home page, the BBC News website and app, and the streaming service iPlayer. “It will also be available internationally via bbc.com/news,” the BBC said. “For those who are unable to attend, the dedicated live stream will be an option to enable people to join the vigil virtually and pay their respects from wherever they are.”
It will be accessible beginning at 5 p.m. London time, which corresponds to Wednesday at noon ET and 9 a.m. L.A. time.
Authorities have warned that there may be a 30-hour wait or more for those wanting to pass by the closed casket in Westminster Hall, the oldest section of the Palace of Westminster, in London. The Imperial State Crown, Orb, and Sceptre, often held in the Tower of London, will be put beneath the coffin on a raised platform, and the coffin will be draped with the Royal Standard flag. Members of the British military forces will protect the casket.
The lying-in-state of the Queen will cease at 6:30 a.m. on Monday, London time. Later that day, she will be laid to rest at a state funeral.
