A day before the funeral, the boundaries were further strengthened in Westminster Hall, where the queen’s body had been incorporated.

In the event of any unexpected danger, bomb-detection dogs began, and snipers were also placed in nearby buildings.

Traffic management has also started, including boarding restrictions at Buckingham Palace tube station, where the Queen will pass last, and a security fence installed on a 36 kilometer section.
