The longest reign in British history came to an end when Queen Elizabeth II departed at age 96. At Scotland’s Balmoral Castle, she died quietly while being cared for by her family.

The following is the schedule for his wake and funeral, where the country will pay its respects, in the upcoming days:

The wake of Queen Elizabeth II

Four days before the queen’s funeral, a wake will be held at Westminster Hall when her casket arrives in London. This wake will be open to the public.

The Great Hall, located in the center of the British government, is the oldest section of the Palace of Westminster.

The Queen Mother’s wake there in 2002 was attended by more than 200,000 people, making it the last royal member to have a wake there.

Under the timber roof from the 11th century, the queen’s casket will lie on a raised platform called a catafalque. Armed personnel from the Royal House’s military units will stand watch at each end of the platform.

A military parade and members of the royal family will follow her as she is slowly transported from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall.

The procession will be visible to the general public on the streets, and screens showing the ceremony will probably be set up in London’s royal parks.

When the coffin is placed in the Hall of Westminster, the Royal Standard, orb, and scepter of the Imperial State will be placed on top of it.

There will be a brief ceremony after the casket is positioned in the room. The public will then be able to enter after that.

Queen Elizabeth II funeral

In less than two weeks, the queen will be laid to rest at Westminster Abbey. The precise date has not yet been made official by Buckingham Palace.

British monarchs have been crowned in the abbey’s medieval church, including the queen herself in 1953. She wed Prince Philip there as well in 1947.

The abbey hasn’t held a royal funeral since the eighteenth century, though the Queen Mother’s funeral was held there in 2002.

To honor the Queen’s life and accomplishments, heads of state from all around the world will gather with members of the royal family. There will also be prominent politicians and past UK prime leaders.

A Royal Navy carriage will transport the queen’s casket from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey to start the day.

The last time the carriage was seen was in 1979 at Lord Mountbatten, Prince Philip’s uncle, funeral.

The new king and other distinguished royal family members are likely to join the parade.

David Hoyle, the Dean of Westminster, will preside over the service, while Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, will deliver the sermon. Liz Truss, the prime minister, might be requested to read a text.

Following this ritual, the queen’s casket will be walked from the abbey to the Arch of Wellington. He will then ride in a hearse to Windsor after that.

In the afternoon, the coffin will travel its last leg to St. George at Windsor Castle.

Prior to performing a ritual in St. George, the king and other senior royals must participate in a procession in the Windsor Castle Quadrangle.

For weddings, christenings, and funerals, members of the royal family frequently select the chapel of St. George. It served as the venue for both the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and the funeral of the Queen’s late husband, Prince Philip.

Before being buried in King George Sixth’s memorial chapel, which is housed inside St. George, the queen’s casket will be put in the Royal Vault.
