This is what you need to know if you wish to see her coffin.
 The queues to see Queen Elizabeth II lying-in-state are continuing into the night.
Westminster Hall will be open 24 hours a day for mourners to pay their respects to the late monarch.
This will continue until the early hours of Monday morning, ahead of the funeral later that day.
The line is currently snaking its way down the length of the Thames for more than two miles.
Experts are warning the public about scams claiming to be selling tickets to the Queen’s funeral.
They are also urging caution about potentially fraudulent memorabilia like coins and stamps.
Neither the lying in state nor the funeral is ticketed.
Tony Neate, the CEO of Get Safe Online, said: “It never fails to amaze and disgust me that whenever there is a tragedy, cybercriminals will inevitably use it as an opportunity to exploit and defraud people into parting with their well-earned money. 
“To do this while a nation is in a state of mourning is beyond comprehensible. 
“We want to warn the public today of this latest scam, so they can steer clear and not fall victim to this particularly obnoxious fraud. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is.”
 They warned the scams could include:

He said: “We don’t really know what’s going to happen with the monarchy in the future and I think it’s really important to be here and witness this moment in history.”
Mr Arujo said he made friends while queueing from six hours, but once he got into the hall it was “a whole other experience just being in front of the Queen and seeing her casket right there”.
On the atmosphere, he said: “It was very – I would say – tranquil was the best word, it was a lot of silence and everyone almost mourning with the royal family, taking it in what was happening and realising the Queen was right in front of you.”
“Everyone almost did a little bow in front of the casket,” he added.
On whether he grew tearful, he said: “A lot of people around me did, I felt the emotions internal but, yes, it was definitely an experience being here.”
