There were over 1 million Tweets about queues and the #1 hashtag within this conversation was #queueforthequeen.

Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II was laid to rest on September 19 at the royal chapel next to her beloved husband Prince Phillip, who predeceased her in 2021.

Only members of the British royal family, led by her successor King Charles III, attended the private ceremony.

Elizabeth, who reigned for 70 years, was given the grandest of final farewells.

Prince Charles, 73, who had been heir to the crown for 70 years—the longest in the country’s history—has ascended the British throne.
