Queen's coffin borne out of Westminster Hall for funeral

Queen Elizabeth II's coffin left parliament's medieval Westminster Hall on Monday, borne by red-jacketed soldiers from the Grenadier Guards, en route to her state funeral.

The coffin had lain in state in the hall since Wednesday, viewed by hundreds of thousands of public mourners. It was placed on the state gun carriage, to be hauled by Royal Navy sailors to the funeral in nearby Westminster Abbey.
