State funeral of Queen Elizabeth II’s on September 19

The state funeral for Queen Elizabeth II will be held at Westminster Abbey on Monday, September 19, according to Buckingham Palace.

The Queen will “Lie-in-State” in Westminster Hall for four days before to her funeral so that mourners can pay their respects.

The palace provided a thorough statement, stating that the Queen’s casket is currently in the ballroom of Balmoral Castle.

It was described as “a scene of serene dignity” by royal authorities. On Sunday, the queen’s casket will travel 290 kilometres (180 miles) by road from the secluded estate to Edinburgh’s Palace of Holyroodhouse.

The casket will be transported from the Palace of Holyroodhouse to St. Giles’ Cathedral in the Scottish capital where it will repose until Tuesday.

The body will subsequently be flown to London’s Buckingham Palace before beginning to lie in state at Westminster Hall on Wednesday.

After being formally proclaimed king in the first Accession Council ceremony since 1952, when his mother ascended to the throne at the age of 25, Charles III, 73, declared previously that he would devote the remainder of his life as King to honouring his mother’s service.

The new King declared that he was “fully aware” of the duty he has taken on in the wake of his mother, who passed away on Thursday at the age of 96.

Liz Truss took the oath of loyalty to the new queen during a special session of parliament after the Queen invited her to become prime minister less than a week ago. Winston Churchill was the last prime minister to do this.
