The body of Mr Lee Kuan Yew arrives at Istana

The crowd waited patiently outside Istana, there to pay their last respects to Mr Lee Kuan Yew.

At around 12.50pm the hearse bearing Mr Lee's body arrived from Singapore General Hospital.

Cameras were held aloft to capture the occasion. As the cortege pulled in to the Istana, there was some brief applause and cheers of appreciation for Mr Lee.  

There will be a private wake on Monday and Tuesday at Sri Temasek within the grounds of Istana.
