Irish Protestors Throw Coffin Into The River During Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral Service

Well, that’s certainly a statement. According to British Royal News, a coffin reading RIP British Empire was thrown into Dublin’s main city center river. The incident happened during an anti-monarchy protest march held in the Irish capital on the day of the funeral of the late Queen Elizabeth II in London.

Anti Imperialist Action Ireland said it replicated an action by former Socialist leader James Connolly in Dublin in 1897 during a visit to the city by Queen Victoria. Irish President Michael D. Higgins and Taoiseach Micheal Martin were among the world leaders attending the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II in London.

Monday afternoon’s march in Dublin was described as “against the servile reverence of the English monarchy by the Free State ruling class”. Demonstrators also protested the Irish flag being flown at half-mast on the day of the Queen’s funeral.

Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth was buried in London. The lowering into the Royal Vault was the last time the Queen’s coffin was seen by the public. She was officially buried at around 7.30pm Monday at a private event alongside her husband Prince Philip. When the Duke died 17 months ago, his coffin was placed in the Royal Vault at St George’s – ready to be taken to the memorial chapel when the Queen died.

The Queen’s coffin will reportedly be buried with the Grenadier Guards Queen’s Company’s encampment color – a smaller version of the regiment’s royal standard – which the King placed on her coffin at the end of the communion service. The private funeral was also held at St George’s Chapel but no members of the public nor cameras were allowed. During the first service, the Imperial crown, orb and scepter were removed from the Queen’s coffin by the Dean of Windsor.
