It wasn't as far as you may think. I believe I read they walked just over a mile but there is no way to stop horses from pooping but the street cleaners likely follow after or at least that's how most cities handle parades.Man oh man watched the Queens funeral procession glad I didnt have to make that walk. But how did they keep the horses from pooping ? I wonder if the ground shook with the lockstep? Remember in history class reading about an army in lockstep could cause a bridge to clasp from vibration. And guess I never heard a real funeral drudge before.
It seemed like a decent sized procession but I don't think it would have been large enough to shake the ground. It is my understanding that there was small representation of each division but nothing huge.
I realize that this is part of her job but I feel she would have rather had a funeral similar to her husband, who died during a covid outbreak and was small and intimate.
