Following the death of Britain’s oldest queen at the age of 96 on September 8, the country entered a ten-day national mourning, which ended with her official funeral on September 19.

During this period, Queen Elizabeth’s coffin remained in Edinburgh Cathedral before being moved to London, where an estimated 250,000 people lined up for hours to view her in the coffin in Westminster Hall ahead of her burial .

John Glenn, the First Secretary to the Treasury, said in a written statement to Parliament: “The Government’s priority has been to ensure that these matters proceed smoothly and with the appropriate level of majesty, while ensuring the safety and the safety of the public in all cases.”

The Home Office, which is responsible for policing and national security, accounted for the biggest payout, amounting to £73.7m of the total amount.

London’s Metropolitan Police said at the time the funeral was the biggest security event in its history, with prominent figures from different parts of the world in attendance.
