At a press conference at Buckingham Palace, he told journalists: “As the person in overall charge of the funeral, let me conclude by saying that, along with so many colleagues from The Royal Household, the Armed Forces, the Police, and other institutions of Church and State, we will carry out our duty with the heaviest of hearts in the coming days.

“But also with a firm determination to ensure a fitting farewell to one of our defining figures; a monarch whom we were truly privileged to have as Head of State of our country and the Realms, as well as Head of the wider Commonwealth.

“While His Majesty The King was speaking about his family, I believe he meant it for all of us when he said in his broadcast yesterday, ‘We owe her the most heartfelt debt.’

“I believe we can repay that debt in some way by carrying out her final wishes in delivering Her Majesty The Queen’s Funeral.”

In the ballroom of Balmoral Castle, the Queen’s body is currently resting in an oak coffin covered with the royal standard of Scotland and topped with a floral wreath.
