The Shining twins Lisa and Louise queued to pay respects to Queen lying-in-state before funeral

The twins who starred in the 1980's horror film, The Shining, queued for hours in London to pay their respects to the Queen as she was Lying-in-State in Westminster Hall.

The late monarch passed away aged 96 in Balmoral Scotland on 8 September, and after her body was flown back to London from Edinburgh, she spent her final evening in Buckingham Palace before her coffin was moved to Westminster Hall four days of Lying-in-State.

Tens of thousands of people queued for up to 24 hours to pay their respects to the Queen, with Lisa and Louise Burns, 53, who played The Grady girls in the Shining, joining them to pay their own respects.

Posting to their official shared Instagram account, the actresses announced that they were in the queue to see the Queen Lying-in-State as they posted a selfie with the Palace of Westminster behind them.

They shared plenty of updates as they waited in line, showing off their wristbands and even snapping someone's white Converse trainers that they had been asked to sign.

The twins then posted another selfie as they announced that they were "nearly there".

In the film, they play the posthumous characters of Alexa and Alexie Grady, after they twins were killed by their father Delbert when he was possessed by ghosts in the Overlook Hotel.

The Queen's coffin stayed Lying-in-State until 6.30am this morning before later being moved in a procession from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey for her state funeral.

Following that, there was another procession as the Queen's body was moved to St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, where there was a service of committal for the Queen, attended by members of the royal family.

The Queen's coffin descended into the Royal Vault as the Dean of Windsor read Psalm 103, ending with the traditional words: "Go forth upon thy journey from this world, O Christian soul."

It was later announced that the Queen has now been buried with her beloved late husband, Prince Phillip who died in 2021, by her side.

The official website of the Royal Family said a private burial took place in The King George VI Memorial Chapel this evening, conducted by the Dean of Windsor.

“The Queen was buried together with the Duke of Edinburgh, at The King George VI Memorial Chapel,” the statement said.

Here the Queen is finally reunited with the her parents George VI and Elizabeth who's remains are buried there, and her sister Margaret, who's ashes are also buried there.
