The coffin left the church at H12 (8h10 from Brasília) towards Wellington Arch, in the southeast corner of Hyde Park, while Big Ben – the famous bell in the tower of the Palace of Westminster – tolled at intervals of one minute during the procession.

Members of the Armed Forces of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth countries, representatives of the British Police and the Public Health Service (NHS) also participated in the procession.
