Many world leaders are expected to attend the funeral. US President Joe Biden, French President Emmanuel Macron, and Japanese Emperor Naruhito have all accepted an invitation to attend. Other invited guests include Australia’s Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, New Zealand’s Jacinda Ardern, and the President of Italy, Sergio Mattarella. China’s Vice President Wang Qishan will also attend. Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe and Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina are also expected to attend the funeral.

The ceremony will begin at 8 a.m. and will include a procession carrying the queen’s coffin. The procession is expected to last no longer than 10 minutes. There will be 200 musicians, including the Scottish and Irish Regiments, who will accompany the procession. After the procession, members of the royal family and other dignitaries will attend the burial service.

There will be several levels of security during the Queen’s funeral. Hundreds of thousands of mourners are expected to line the streets. A large number of uniformed police officers will be on duty, as will 2,500 members of the military. Police officers with bomb-sniffing dogs will be present at key locations. A special unit will be watching for people who have “fixated” on the royal family, and may pose a danger.
