LONDON — Hundreds of thousands of mourners lined the streets of London to give their final farewells as Queen Elizabeth II was laid to rest Monday. The funeral, drawing world leaders and royalty alike, was a final goodbye to a monarch whose 70-year reign defined an age.

Monday’s event ends more than a week-long series giving honors to the late queen, after her death on Sept. 8 ended her historic reign. The funeral began with the tolling of the bell at Westminster Hall — the bell rang 96 times, once each minute to honor each year of Elizabeth’s life.

The coffin of the longest-reigning monarch in British history laid in state in Westminster Hall for more than four days, as thousands waited in a long, slow-moving queue to pay their respects.

Monday has been declared a public holiday in honor of the queen.

Elizabeth will be buried at Windsor alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, who died last year.
