Britain’s Defense Minister joins the ceremonial guard next to the Queen’s coffin

British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace was guarding Queen Elizabeth’s coffin on Thursday as the late monarch lay in state inside Westminster Hall of Parliament.

Wallace was serving in his capacity as a member of the Royal Company of Archers which serves as the body guard of the monarch in Scotland – one of the protective units involved in keeping a constant watch on the coffin.

Wearing the company’s dark green uniform, including a traditional Scottish hat known as a Balmoral bonnet, Wallace took a position in front of the coffin as mourners slowly walked past.

During the four-and-a-half-day vigil, guards stand around the catafalque, a raised platform on which the coffin rests, turning their clock every 20 minutes.
