RIP HM Queen Elizabeth II: Paying Respects at Windsor in 3-D

RIP HM Queen Elizabeth II: Paying Respects at Windsor in 3-D

I thought I’d invite national and international friends to join everyone at Windsor paying respects to Queen Elizabeth II, just after sunrise on the cold morning of Saturday 17th September 2022.

Please note that for each 3-D image, you’ll first see the parallel-view, followed by the cross-view. If you need any help viewing them, please see this post.

Leading up to Windsor Castle is the three mile straight called ‘The Long Walk’, and it is very appropriately named. Currently, they are preparing fencing and facilities to accommodate the expected large crowds who will gather as the Queen’s coffin procession takes her on her final journey tomorrow, to be laid to rest next to her beloved husband at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

Not long before I walked down the Long Walk, there had been a full funeral procession rehearsal, so forgive the horse poo in many of the stereos!

Despite the sad occasion, there is a good and united atmosphere of people from all over the world coming together to celebrate and grieve the life and 70 year reign of a unique and respected monarch, who will be missed by many.

People from all over the world have been visiting for several days to lay flowers and cards to pay their respects at the Cambridge Gate of Windsor Castle. The castle staff remove them very early each morning and place them outside St. George’s Chapel or along Cambridge Drive inside the Castle grounds, to make room for more flowers to be laid at the gate the next day. All of the messages and cards are saved for the Royal Family to read. You will see white signs outside the gates in several of the stereoviews, these are to thank everyone for the flowers and let them know what will happen to them.

The town of Windsor is also paying respects to one of its beloved inhabitants.

As you’d expect, there are film cameras ready to capture the procession tomorrow, as well as reporters recording live reports.

The local authority staff are working hard placing flowers outside the gates, which have been removed from elsewhere, and also taking time to talk to many of the visitors. I’d like to thank them for their hard work and kindness.

I’d also like to express my thanks to all of the services, other staff and volunteers who are working hard to keep everyone safe and everything running smoothly, which is no small task. The first people I encountered were hundreds of police, walking in groups in different directions. Many of them kindly wished me a good morning, whilst others were a little confused why I had a strange looking camera setup.
