The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea paid its respects to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as she passed through the borough for the final time.

Mayor Cllr David Lindsay greeted the Queen’s funeral cortege as it passed along Queen’s Gate on the borough’s border with Westminster, surrounded by mourning residents and visitors.

The funeral procession continued through the borough along Cromwell Road, eventually crossing into Hammersmith and Fulham before continuing its journey to Windsor.

Statement from the Mayor

“It was a bittersweet privilege to welcome Her Majesty The Queen into our borough for the final time and to bid her the fondest of farewells as she departed.


“Kensington and Chelsea enjoyed a strong connection with Queen Elizabeth II, both through our status as a Royal Borough and from her many visits here. The crowds of residents and visitors who lined our streets to pay their respects today were a clear expression of the affection and gratitude in which we will always hold her.”
