Penny Lancaster speaks out about policing at Queen's funeral 'Biggest honour to serve'

She went on to explain that, while the day’s activities had been demanding, she “wouldn’t have missed it for the world”.

Speaking about the procession on London’s Mall, she continued: “Leading up to that moment, it’s been a very emotional few days.

“In that moment, our priority is to be aware of the crowd and the potential dangers and risks on an event like today.

“So the focus is mostly on my duty, but also (it was) a wonderful opportunity and very honoured to be here to pay respects at the same time,” she added.
