It will be, according to the deputy commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Stuart Cundy, the “final and most complex phase” of the enormous police operation that has surrounded all the preparations since the death of Elizabeth II on the 8th in Balmoral (Scotland) to the 96 years.

The funeral procession will travel, at the end of the religious service in Westminster Abbey, a first phase of the route to the Wellington Arch, where at 1:00 p.m. (12:00 GMT) it is expected that the remains of the sovereign will be transferred to a hearse to make his last trip to Windsor Castle, some 35 miles west of London.

During that first section, the police will have a thousand policemen who will follow the procession.
