Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral at Westminster Abbey


The official mourning period for Queen Elizabeth IIthe UK’s longest-reigning monarch, culminates Monday morning with her state funeral in London’s ancient Westminster Abbey. The guest list for the service includes around 500 foreign dignitaries, including President Biden and about 100 other heads of state. The huge influx of VIPs was putting an unprecedented security operationwhich was decades in the planning, to the test.

Queen Elizabeth died on September 8 at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle, her beloved country estate in Scotland. Her oldest son, now King Charles IIIhas led the royal familythe nation and the world in honoring her legacy and ushering in a new era that is likely to present growing challenges for both the kingdom and its Commonwealth.

Monday’s full service will be broadcast live, with CBS News coverage from 5:30 am ET, anchored by Norah O’Donnell and Gayle King.

The Very Reverend Dr. David Hoyle, 39th Dean of Westminster Abbey, who will officiate the funeral, told CBS News“you can be absolutely certain that some of the things the queen had hoped we would say will be part of the service.”

The funeral was preceded by days of carefully choreographed public events, including a majestic procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall on Wednesday. Countless admirers lined up for mileswaiting all day and night for a chance to file past the queen’s coffin during her four days of lying in states.

Following Monday’s service, the queen’s coffin will be taken in a walking procession to Hyde Park, and then by hearse to St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, her final resting place, where her late husband, Prince Philip, and her sister, Princess Margaret, are also interred.
