Britain’s Royal Navy Rehearses Ahead of Queen’s Funeral #shorts

Sailors and Royal Marines rehearse ahead of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on Monday. During the ceremony, the Royal Navy sailors will pull the State Ceremonial Gun Carriage bearing the coffin for 2 miles through the streets of London, a duty they have performed since the funeral of Queen Victoria in 1901. Some 98 sailors will haul the 2½-ton ceremonial carriage, with a further 40 sailors marching behind the vehicle acting as brakes, forming the core of more than 1,000 Royal Navy personnel in the capital for the funeral.
