Sharon Osbourne was among the first groups of people to view the Queen lying in state in London today. 

The former X Factor judge made the trip down to Westminster Hall on Wednesday afternoon where she joined the lengthy queue of people to see the late monarch’s coffin. 

Queen Elizabeth II died at her Balmoral home on September 8 at the age of 96, and her coffin was flown back to London last night arriving at Buckingham Palace where she was received by King Charles III and his other siblings including the Princess Royal. 

At 2:22pm, a procession began as Her Majesty’s coffin was transported to Westminster Hall where it will remain until her funeral on Monday so members of the public can pay their respects. 

Osbourne, 69, was spotted among the thick crowds and one mourner even managed to grab a selfie with the TV personality. 

It appears the presenter, who is married to rock legend Ozzy Osbourne, was accompanied by a crew filming for her TalkTV series The Talk, as her co-host JJ Anisiobi was also seen with her.
