Lying in state is the tradition in which the body of a dead official is placed in a state building, either outside or inside a coffin, to allow the public to pay their respects. It traditionally takes place in the principal government building of a country, state, or city.
Пример: Rep. Elijah Cummings will lie in state on Thursday within the U.S. Capitol where he served for 23 years as a congressman.
