“The mood is jubilant and am very happy to be part of this jubilant party that has thronged the streets of London to witness this historic event when the Queen is being buried. I have never seen this before, people lining the streets the joining the Queen in her final resting place in Windsor. This experience will remain etched in my mind,” she said.
