African leaders used public transport on their way to the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

This was due to the United Kingdom government’s order that no one was allowed to travel by private means.

Newly elected Kenyan President William Samoei Ruto, Tanzania’s Samia Suluhu Hassan and Uganda’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Gen.Jeje Odongo among others were pictured with local passengers in a bus.

United States of America President Joe Biden was among those who were allowed to use their private cars.

Queen Elizabeth II is Britain’s longest serving monarch and will be buried at the St.George’s Chapel alongside her husband Prince Philip as wl as her father George VI, the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret.

Forstarters, when Prince Philip died in April 2021, his coffin was placed in the 200-year-old Royal Vault beneath St George’s Chapel.

However, this is not Prince Philip’s final resting place, and he will be transferred to the memorial chapel within St George’s to lie alongside his wife’s coffin.

The memorial chapel was built in 1969 after the death of King George VI.
