Spectacular satellite images from the Queen’s funeral procession

Britain said farewell to Queen Elizabeth II with pomp and pageantry.

Satellite images show crowds amassed in the streets of London and at Windsor Castle to honor a monarch whose 70-year reign defined an era.

The first state funeral since Winston Churchill’s drew world leaders and other royalty.

Royal Navy sailors pulled a gun carriage carrying her flag-draped coffin to Westminster Abbey.

The trappings of state and monarchy abounded: The coffin was draped with the Royal Standard and atop it sat the Imperial State Crown, sparkling with almost 3,000 diamonds, and the sovereign’s orb and scepter.

More people lined the route the hearse took from the capital to Windsor Castle, and many tossed flowers at the cortege as it passed.

Millions more tuned into the funeral live, and crowds flocked to parks and public spaces across the U.K. to watch it on screens.

Maxar Technology collected new satellite imagery over London (collection time of 12:09 PM BST and also at 12:13 PM, September 19th) that focused on the funeral procession of Queen Elizabeth II.

The images show the procession shortly after departing from Westminster Hall and thousands of people lining the streets and area along the procession route.

Two Maxar satellites collected imagery of London approximately four minutes apart and they offer slightly different perspectives of the procession based on the angles that the images were collected.
