The Disgusting Truth About The Queen's Funeral That Had The Internet Obsessed


Queen Elizabeth II, who died on September 8, 2022, at Balmoral Castle in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, was honored with an elaborate and somber

funeral in London and was laid to rest on September 19, 2022, in the King George VI Memorial Chapel.

Details of the queen's death, the public viewing of her coffin, and the funeral itself were followed closely and shared via countless news outlets and social media.

Although a vast majority of the news focused on the attendees, logistics, ceremony, and even the length of the queue lines, some of the

reports and comments were critical and focused on the condition of the streets during the funeral procession.

In anticipation of Queen Elizabeth's funeral procession, BBC reports the Westminster City Council assembled a team to conduct a deep cleaning

along the planned route of the procession. In addition to washing the roadway, the team removed graffiti, stickers, and layers of dirt from lamposts, statues, and other objects along the route.

As reported by The U.S. Sun, the freshly washed streets were also covered in sand.

The sand was meant to prevent the horses in the procession from losing their footing and slipping on the road.
