Heathrow cancels flights ‘out of respect’ for Queen’s coffin procession
The Metro says Flights at Heathrow Airport have been axed so they do not disturb the Queen’s coffin procession this afternoon.
‘Appropriate alterations’ will be made over the coming days ‘out of respect’ for the mourning period, a spokesperson from the west London airport said.
This includes flights being disrupted between 1.50pm and 3.40pm today.
The move will ‘ensure silence over central London’ as the ceremonial procession moves from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall.
Prince William and Prince Harry will join their father King Charles III to walk behind the monarch’s coffin at 2.22pm.
