How to watch Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on TV


Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral in London on Monday will mark the world’s farewell to Britain’s longest-reigning monarch.

The Queen died at her Scottish country estate, Balmoral, on September 8 at the age of 96.

After being officially confirmed as the new king on September 10, King Charles III ordered a holiday across the UK on September 19.

Mourners lined the streets of London to see the Queen’s coffin being solemnly paraded in a gun carriage from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall – where it will remain until the morning of her funeral.

The flag coffin of Queen Elizabeth II is paraded from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall in the gun carriage of the King's Household Cavalry Artillery on September 14, 2022.
