Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral will be held in London on Monday, in a ceremony that will pay tribute to Britain’s longest reigning monarch.
The Queen died on September 8, aged 96, at her Scottish country house, Balmoral.
King Charles III ordered a public holiday in the United Kingdom on September 19, following the formal confirmation of the new king on September 10.
Mourners lined the streets of London to watch the Queen’s coffin travel in a gun carriage in a solemn procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall, where her funeral will lie until dawn.
On Monday morning, the Queen’s lying state will end. The coffin will then go in procession back to Westminster Abbey for the state funeral, starting at 11:00 a.m. local time (6:00 a.m. Eastern time).
After the funeral, the coffin will again be carried in procession from Westminster Abbey to Wellington Arch. From there, he will go to Windsor. Once in Windsor, the carriage will travel to St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle for the engagement service.
Heads of state and dignitaries from around the world are expected to travel to the British capital to join members of the royal family in celebrating the Queen’s life and her continued service to the nation and the Commonwealth. Although the full guest list has not yet been announced, US President Joe Biden has said he plans to attend the funeral.
Other familiar faces on the televised service will include some of the 15 Prime Ministers who served during the Queen’s reign.
Both the state funeral at Westminster Abbey and the engagement service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor will be televised.
