The weather is expected to be dry and sunny for the Queen’s funeral, according to the latest forecast.
Her Majesty will be laid to rest on bank holiday Monday following a service at Westminster Abbey.
Tearful mourners lined the streets on Wednesday to watch her coffin leave Buckingham Palace and be taken to Westminster Hall to lie in state.
The Queen had arrived at her former home on Tuesday evening in gloom and rain but for her departure from the palace, the weather was bright and warm.
The Met Office has forecast clear skies for the Queen’s funeral.
It said: “The settled spell of dry and fine weather is likely to continue into the start of next week with high pressure remaining dominant across the UK.
“Monday looks likely to be dry with sunny spells for much of the UK, including the southeast.
“It will remain cooler by day and night, but feeling a little warmer than the weekend with lighter winds.”
Millions of mourners are expected to make their way to London this week to pay their respects to the Queen at her lying in state.
Met Office meteorologist Annie Shuttleworth said “early rain will clear to the south” by Wednesday afternoon, with the skies in central London “becoming brighter with some sunny spells”.
She added it would be dry overnight with some clear spells, with a minimum temperature of 13C.

Shuttleworth said that from Thursday there would be “a lot of dry weather with sunny spells each day”.
However, she added that it would feel cooler than lately by day and night in the capital.
The Met Office said: “Through the rest of the week showers will affect northern Scotland and North Sea coastal areas in England at times, the heaviest showers will be mainly on Friday when they could turn heavy with hail and thunder.”
The Queen’s lying in state opened to the public at 5pm on Wednesday and will be open 24 hours a day until it closes at 6.30am on the day of the monarch's funeral.
On Monday, the coffin will be taken in a grand military procession from the Palace of Westminster to Westminster Abbey for the state funeral.
Senior members of the family are expected to follow behind – just like they did for the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales and the Duke of Edinburgh.
The military will line the streets and also join the procession.
The Queen’s final resting place will be the King George VI memorial chapel, an annex to the main chapel – where her mother and father were buried, along with the ashes of her sister, Princess Margaret.
Philip’s coffin will move from the Royal Vault to the memorial chapel to join the Queen’s.
