Who is this they follow?

The logistics of this are tricky. If the King, Queen and courtiers are following the body – then the body would seem to be the first “person” out onstage but he doesn’t say anything about it until after he’s acknowledged the king and train.
I suppose, the way to do it is for those two “But soft”s to be the seeing of the coffin and then he circles back around to the coffin once he’s processed who’s here.
So it’s: dead body, King, Queen, courtiers…
Wait, if they’re here who is that dead body? Who is dead that those folks are here?
And wait – what’s missing?
Some of the usual trappings.
So was this dead body a suicide?
It’s a lot to follow that train of thought.
But it is logical.
