Westminster Bells Muffled for Queen's Death

The Westminster Abbey bells were fitted with leather muffles to produce a special sound at the arrival of Queen Elizabeth’s coffin on Wednesday, September 14.

According to Westminster Abbey, the bells are only fully muffled this way after the death of a monarch.
