The funeral procession for Queen Caroline


For her historical feature this week, Margaret Mills took us back 200 years, to the funeral of Queen Caroline, the estranged wife of King George IV.

 

Queen Caroline wanted to be buried in Brunswick, Germany, but having died in London, a funeral procession proceeded from London across Essex to Harwich where her body was transferred to a ship to be taken to her final resting place in Germany.

Listen here to Margaret’s account of this event: –
