At 11am (British Standard Time) this morning, heads of state, royal families from around the world and A-list celebrities were among the thousands of mourners to file into Westminster Abbey to pay their respects to Queen Elizabeth II.

It was the first funeral for a monarch in the Abbey since the 18th century, with the venue holding great historical significance as it is where the Queen married Prince Phillip.
