The farewell date is set. The state funeral for Queen Elizabeth II will take place on September 19th. Numerous heads of state and government from all over the world are then expected, including several queens and kings of European countries.

A service is planned at 12 noon German time in Westminster Abbey in London, as the palace announced on Saturday. The Queen will be buried in St George's Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle, where her husband Prince Philip, who died on April 9, 2021, is also buried. Then the two will be reunited.

The public can say goodbye

People in Britain get an extra day off at the state funeral. King Charles III approved this holiday on the occasion of his proclamation.

To give the public a chance to say goodbye to their Queen and pay their respects, the coffin will be laid out in Westminster Hall for four days before the state funeral. He is currently still in the ballroom of Balmoral Castle. As early as Sunday (September 11) the coffin will be taken to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, where it will remain in the throne room until Monday.

This is also where members of the Royal Family will come to accompany the Queen in an afternoon procession from the Palace forecourt of Holyroodhouse to St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh. RTL.de will report live from the location. A service will then take place in St. Giles' Cathedral. The coffin will remain here for the time being so that the Scottish people can say goodbye to the Queen.

On Tuesday afternoon, Queen Elizabeth's body will be flown from Scotland to Northolt and then taken to Buckingham Palace, where it will initially rest in the Bow Room.

'On Wednesday 14 September in the afternoon the coffin will be carried in a procession by gun carriage from Buckingham Palace to the Palace of Westminster where the Queen will rest until the morning of the state funeral at Westminster Hall,' the palace said.

Once the coffin is here, the Archbishop of Canterbury will hold a short service, which will also be attended by the Royal Family. After that, the state incarceration period begins. During the laying out, citizens have the opportunity to pay their respects to the Queen one last time.

'On Monday, September 19, the funeral will end and the coffin will be taken in procession from Palace of Westminster to Westminster Abbey, where the state funeral will take place,' the palace said. Following the burial, the coffin is taken, also in procession, first to Wellington Arch and then to Windsor, where the hearse is taken in procession down the Long Walk to St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. This is where the funeral service for Queen Elizabeth will take place.
