LONDON DIARY: Reflections from the queue to mourn the queen

LONDON DIARY: Reflections from the queue to mourn the queen

LONDON (AP) — A overseas correspondent, a consultant, a businessman, a former accountant accompanied by every one one other accompanied by his spouse stand inside a dash for almost eight hours.

That is how this tale begins, on one instance I claim my spot among a growing queue of mourners coming from all corners of the United Kingdom accompanied by every one one other accompanied by the world to pay their last respects to Queen Elizabeth II inside England's capital.

It ends when the five of us way not here the majestic hall — every one one inside awe, inside our own individual way, of the forces of alter that swirl around us.

One step into the line, a volunteer named Kofi jots down my number; a wristband subsequent confirms I am No. 3,017 inside the queue.

I look back, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by the chain of people has by that hour dated grown by a dozen. It will stretch for miles down the south border of the River Thames inside the way of Westminster Hall, where the late monarch is lying inside condition ahead of her burial on Monday.

We were told to expect this. Long waiting times, potentially for 30 hours, inside lines that could stretch additional than five miles.

A single-zip backpack was all we were allowed to bring; food accompanied by every one one other accompanied by swallow would exist tossed earlier to entering the hall. I packed while I would for a hostile assignment: Layers accompanied by every one one other accompanied by waterproofs to description for the notoriously moody weather. Protein bars accompanied by every one one other accompanied by a completely charged ability bank. An obscene number of pens. And good shoes.

___

The earliest exist courageous sufficient is finding the extremity of the ever-moving queue. I begin from the beginning, near the Albert Embankment, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by labour my way into with every one other accompanied by not here of the ocean of humans from all walks of actuality who are lined up inside single file.

My fellow queuers accompanied by every one one other accompanied by I assess every one one other silently. There is Ramakant accompanied by every one one other accompanied by his spouse Usha, a former place of set of two accompanied by a passion for mountains. Daniel, a jolly businessman from Essex, specializes inside office refurbishment. There is a counsellor whose identity I've sworn to secrecy since she was skipping labour to stand inside line.

In the way of our normal lives, we are unlikely to at some hour dated cross paths. But the forces of history have by some means tied us together, at least for these following few hours. Quietly, not explicitly, a sensory ability of inhabitants has mysteriously formed inside the centre of us.

We have different reasons for coming. Ramakant accompanied by every one one other accompanied by Usha adored the queen. Daniel admired her dedication. For the unnamed consultant, saying goodbye to the monarch was something she had to do "for myself."

Me? I was curious. Death has been on my cerebrum lately.

A week prior, I had been inside southern Iraq to observer thousands of pilgrims build their way to the holy city of Karbala to mark the Shiite devout observance of Arbaeen — a 40-day mourning hour dated to commemorate the demise of Imam Hussein, Prophet Mohammed's grandson.

I watched an endless procession of pious Iraqis recreate scenes from seventh-century Islam under the scorching 105-degree (40 degrees Celsius) sun. Men rode camels inside Hejazi regalia accompanied by every one one other accompanied by black-clad early years waved devout flags. Food stalls that dotted the numerous miles to the shrine gave not here rice accompanied by every one one other accompanied by beans.

Now I am observer to a dramatically different queue of mourners, there to mark the passing of a monarch whose 70-year reign encompassed the extremity of an empire. Unlike inside the parched terrain of Iraq, people here are fearful it may rain.

The queue, observed: Readers engrossed inside thick novels. Groups of friends chatting accompanied by every one one other accompanied by sharing large bottles of champagne. A woman practicing tai chi.

"This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience," Ramakant says.

Usha marvels at how Elizabeth worked up until hours earlier to she died, handling the alter of ability from Boris Johnson to Liz Truss place of set of two days earlier to her demise.

"Imagine all the things she has done behind the scenes, inside the background, none of us know anything about," she says.

They can't exist convinced by Elizabeth is dead, inside malice of the fact they knew she could not exist forever. "Did you watching her fingertips?" Daniel says of Elizabeth's last appearance place of set of two days earlier to her death. "They were see-through almost, weren't they?"

We are silent, listening to the type soundtrack of the Thames.

It's a good thing, he adds, that she died inside a short hour dated following Prince Philip, her husband of 74 years. It had been the same accompanied by his parents; they died within place of set of two weeks of every one one other. "It's the finest death, really."

The counsellor ducks to retain away from a TV crew. Later she scrolls communal media, hoping not to find herself on international report broadcasts. A colleague calls, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by she tells them she is fair "getting lunch."

I ask: Why not fair tell them you are here?

"It's fair one of those things I want to do for myself, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by not have to explain." ___

Suddenly, the dash is moving. The queen's coffin has arrived inside the Hall.

Everything that follows is the epitome of order. The dash snakes fast around the bank, down to the embankment, where we watch boats cruise by. Before us, inside the late-afternoon sun, the gothic complicated of Westminster glimmers.

Ramakant was an accountant accompanied by every one one other accompanied by has spent his retirement years traveling the world accompanied by his wife. From Niagara Falls to Mt. Kilimanjaro, they have been everywhere. "The key," says Usha, "is not to carry on accompanied by to exist until tomorrow."

"You ability exist dead," Ramakant says. To our left-hand is the National COVID Memorial Wall, accompanied by one heart for every one one actuality lived accompanied by every one one other accompanied by lost.

The counsellor has to use the bathroom, nevertheless the dash is now moving rapidly. So we part our location accompanied by her and, moments later, wave when we are numerous yards ahead accompanied by every one one other accompanied by are reunited.

At the final stretch, we eye the safety inspect fair earlier to the hall entrance. We are surprised by how fast the dash has moved. A woman behind me complains to the volunteers who go nearer to lay clasp of away drinks: "I've got 30 hours' cost of liquor inside here!"

Ramakant is stopped from taking off his shoes earlier to the X-ray. "This isn't exist fond of Gatwick!" jokes one policeman, invoking the name of one of London's airports.

Inside the hall, all falls silent accompanied by every one one other accompanied by still. We look up at the lofty wood-beam ceilings. We look down, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by there it is — the queen's coffin on a raised platform, surrounded by integrity guards. On top, the imperial condition crown glitters accompanied by its 3,000 diamonds.

The dash divides inside two, accompanied by every one one other accompanied by every one one of us is specified trio seconds to pay last respects. A male inside a tartan accompanied by every one one other accompanied by walking stick salutes. An elderly woman rises from her wheelchair accompanied by every one one other accompanied by makes the sign of the cross. Daniel gets on one knee. Ramakant accompanied by every one one other accompanied by Usha bow their heads. Then it is my turn. Outside, the sol is setting.

"We inside all likelihood would never have met if it weren't for this," Daniel says afterward. Everyone exchanges numbers. "Even inside death, she's still doing her work."

Total hour dated elapsed: Just over 7½ hours.

Ramakant turns to me. "So," he says. "What will you place inside writing concerning us?"
