Queens lying-in-state queue tracker live stream can be used to find end point

On Wednesday, September 14, Queen Elizabeth II's lying-in-state commenced at the Palace of Westminster in London.

Upon its announcement on Monday, people immediately started to queue outside the building, and in mere hours the line stretched across neighbouring streets to the River Thames.

Since then, it has only increased in size, with estimates suggesting a staggering 14 hour wait in line to reach the palace.

The line will close at 6.30am on Monday, September 19, mere hours before the state funeral will begin.

Just before 11am, the coffin will take a 10-minute trip from the palace to Westminster Abbey, with the service estimated to last around an hour.

There will be two minutes silence at 12pm, before the coffin will journey to Windsor for the Queen’s final resting place.

The line to see it before then is still moving, but currently paused due to exceeding capacity. To see it yourself, here is everything you need to know about the Queen’s lying-in-state line.

Where is the Queen’s lying-in-state line now?

The line now goes back five miles, via the Southbank, past the Borough Market into Bermondsey and finishes at Southwark Park.

The park marks the official end of the queue as it is at “full capacity,” the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) announced.

The DCMS added: “We are sorry for any inconvenience. Please do not attempt to join the queue until it re-opens.”

It stretched 4.9 miles but is currently paused, meaning it is unlikely to exceed this mark now.

It will remain paused until at least 4pm on Friday (September 16) when officials will re-evaluate the queue.

How to watch the Queen’s lying-in-state line live?

The BBC is broadcasting the lying-in-state on BBC Parliament, but it only shows the coffin in the Palace of Westminster.

If you want to track the length of the line itself, the DCMS has a live feed showing exactly where it ends. This can be used to find the exact length of the queue, and how long the wait times are.

You can watch the live feed on YouTube via the DCMS’s official channel, which you can see above.

The BBC also has a live broadcast from inside the Palace of Westminster on YouTube.

It is available to watch via the BBC News official channel.
