Pictures of Queen Elizabeth II covered British newspapers on Monday, with “FAREWELL OUR GLORIOUS QUEEN” plastered on one front page. “Thank you Ma’am,” read the Metro’s headline, next to a portrait of a younger queen.
The Daily Mail’s front page said Britain’s new monarch, King Charles III, was “moved beyond measure” by the national show of grief. “OUR LAST FAREWELL,” its front page read, alongside a photo of the queen waving. Others, like the Guardian and the Financial Times, led with the country bracing for Monday’s state funeral, which has drawn dozens of world leaders to London’s Westminster Abbey.
