The BBC reports that more than a hundred thousand people have paid their respects to the Queen Mother at Westminster Hall, where the coffin is lying in state.
The number has been so overwhelming that Westminster Hall remained open the whole of Saturday evening so that as many people could pay their respects as possible. Her Majesty the Queen, Prince Phillip, the Duke of York, have also all come out to greet and thank mourners for their concern.
In view of the huge number of people turning up, the coffin will continue to lie in state until Tuesday morning, when it will be moved to Westminster Abbey for the funeral service, where about 2000 invited guests will attend.
Music at the ceremony will include "Guide me, o thou great redeemer", the National Anthem, and other hymns.
The number of people paying their respects is comparable to other state funerals, the last being that of Sir Winston Churchill, where over a quarter of a million people paid their respects, and that of Queen Mary, the last royal consort to lie in state, where over a hundred and twenty thousand people paid their respects.
It's very moving to see that so many people all over Great Britain and Northern Ireland are still moved by the death of a royal.
God save the Queen and Great Britain!
