Standing next to the Shopping Center in central London, where the Queen’s coffin procession will pass on its way to Windsor, Jan Gard, 68, said the funeral service had been emotional for her.

First, there is sadness over the Queen’s death, and then there is the poignant symbolism of the funeral crowd singing the British national anthem ‘God Save the King’, as Charles III becomes the new monarch.

I have to constantly tell myself it’s the King, not the Queen,” said Gard, who hails from Kent in southeastern England.

The service “is beautiful because she (the Queen) is Catholic and she serves God and her people,” Gard said.

She added that when she saw the Queen’s coffin on the livestream, “it really hurt me. I was born in the year she was crowned and so it makes sense to me. “
