The United States President, Joe Biden, French President, Emmanuel Macron and other world leaders will come together in central London on Monday to attend the state funeral of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II.
It was also gathered that around 500 foreign dignitaries are expected to attend the service at Westminster Abbey.
The funeral will be televised to a massive television audience and shown to crowds in parks and public areas around the nation on Monday (today), which has been proclaimed a holiday.
A tide of people continued to stream into Westminster Hall, where the queen’s coffin is lying in state, draped in the Royal Standard and capped with a diamond-studded crown.
The lying-in-state continues until early Monday morning when the queen’s coffin will be moved to nearby Westminster Abbey for the funeral, the finale of 10 days of national mourning for Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.
After the service Monday at the abbey, the late queen’s coffin will be transported through the historic heart of London on a gun carriage. It will then be taken in a hearse to Windsor, where the queen will be interred alongside her late husband, Prince Philip, who died last year.
