Daily life in Britain is expected to come to a large stop on Monday in honor of the queen. The day will be a holiday, with some hospitals rescheduling non-urgent surgeries and sporting and cultural events changing their plans. Some flight times at London Heathrow Airport will be changed to limit noise during the funeral.

The line to see the queen’s coffin is so long that the authorities had to close it

The proceedings follow four days of people waiting in mile-long queues, winding through central London, to pay their respects to the queen. “The Queue,” as the British were quick to call it, had been run with butlers, wristbands and toilets along the way. It got so long that on Friday the authorities temporarily prevented people from joining.

Where will Queen Elizabeth II be buried?

The queen’s final resting place will be at Windsor Castle near London. She will be buried next to her husband, Prince Philip, in St. George’s Chapel.

After the queen died on September 8 at Balmoral Castle, a royal estate in Scotland, her body was flown to London via the Royal Air Force. A procession carried her from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall, where she rested for four days, which is akin to lying in state.

Who will attend the queen’s funeral?

Other leaders expected to be in attendance include New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro , and the Emperor of Japan, Naruhito.
