When former President George H.W. Bush is laid to rest his funeral will be attended by living US presidents as well as other D.C. politicians, dignitaries, and a member of Britain's royal family.
Wednesday is a national day of mourning for the 41st president.
As official Washington paid its respects inside the Capitol, Americans queued up outside the Capitol Visitor Center for their chance.
According to USA TODAY, Trump on Saturday proclaimed a day of mourning.
Bush, who died Friday at the age of 94, will be memorialized on Wednesday at the National Cathedral in Washington.

"There will be much more that I will want to say about President Bush's legacy in the days and weeks to come as we honor his memory". Ms. Kasper said the president's steady hand showed through those tumultuous years. The Post reported that one person close to the funeral planning said the Bush family's decision to be amicable toward the current president was "at least partly pragmatic" because Trump has the final say over important aspects of the funeral, including the use of Air Force One to carry Bush's body between Texas to Washington. His son, George W. Bush, later released a statement about the passing of his father.
After services in Washington, Bush will be returned to Houston to lie in repose at St. Martin's Episcopal Church before burial Thursday at his family plot on the library grounds. Bush will lie in state there for public visitation through Wednesday.
Mary Kasper, of Arlington, Virginia, said she was working overseas in London during the first Gulf War, deemed an unqualified success on Mr. Bush's watch.
"I think maybe people need to start thinking about that a bit more", she said, "following that set of values, not fighting with each other, agreeing to disagree, doing what we're supposed to do, take care of each other ... not be at odds with each other all the time".
