On Wednesday September 28, an 18-year-old soldier, who had accompanied the coffin of Elizabeth II on the day of her funeral, was found dead in the Hyde Park barracks to which he was attached.
Sad news. On September 19, all eyes were on London where the funeral of Elizabeth II took place in Westminster Abbey. For the occasion, a procession has been organized down to the smallest detail, with a cortege made up of the Queen’s four children, three of her grandsons, as well as soldiers belonging to the various corps of the British army. Among them, Private Jack Brunell-Williams. Old 18 years oldthe young man was among the youngest recruits of the Household Cavalry, which got him to escort the coffin of Elizabeth II on horseback. Unfortunately, his service to the institution will have been short-lived, as, two weeks after one of the most publicized events in the world, Jack Brunell-Williams was found dead, revealed The Mirror.
“The death was unexpected, it has been investigated and is not considered suspicious”, said the police. According to the British tabloid, it was on September 28, around 3:48 p.m., that Jack Brunell-Williams was found dead in his barracks in Hyde Park, in the Knightsbridge district of London. Heartbreaking news for his relatives who, a few weeks earlier, proclaimed their pride in seeing him do it “his duty for the queen on her last voyage”as his father had written on Facebook, in the caption of several shots of his time on television. “I never thought I would say this, but our family is heartbroken by the sudden passing of our wonderful Jack Williams”said the young man’s mother, Laura.
The mourning of the royal family ended
Jack Brunell-Williams was part of the Blues and Royals regiment that escorted Elizabeth II’s coffin to Westminster Abbey, before accompanying it to Wellington’s Arch. It was here that he was placed in a hearse to reach Windsor, where the Queen now rests alongside her husband Prince Philip, as well as her father George VI and her mother, in St George’s Chapel. After a long period of mourning, the royal family has recently returned to service, in particular King Charles III, who will receive his first state guest next November: South African President Cyril Ramaphosa.
