Queen Elizabeth II is being bid farewell to her last journey with a grand ceremony. In addition to the Royal Family, many heads of state and country representatives attended the funeral at Westminster Church.
Before the ceremony, King Charles III said that the public’s interest in the Royal Family had a profound effect on him.
The Queen’s coffin was brought to the church with a ceremony. As part of the ceremony, the new king, Elizabeth’s grandchildren, William and Harry, followed the funeral on foot.
Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton were absent from this part of the ceremony. It soon became a matter of curiosity, and it turned out to be a royal custom.
PRINCESS MOM BROKEN THE ROOM AGAIN
The British press traditionally wrote that only male members of the dynasty walked from Westminster Hall to the Abbey.
However, this custom was once again broken by Princess Anne. Princess Anne, who accompanied the male members of the Royal Family at the funeral of her father, Prince Philip, who passed away last year, also took part in the ceremony held for her mother Elizabeth.
Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, waited for the funeral at Westminster Abbey.
On the other hand, the longest reigning queen of Europe, the king of Spain and other world rulers were also present.
During the religious ceremony for the Queen’s funeral, Europe’s longest reigning monarch was Queen of Denmark II. Margrethe sat directly across from King Charles, the continent’s newest monarch.
Queen Margrethe and II. Elizabeth was very fond of each other. The Queen of Denmark is celebrating her 50th year on the throne this year but changed her celebration plans last weekend due to the death of her friend.
Other foreign royals at the ceremony included the King and Queen of Bhutan, the Emperor and Empress of Japan, King Philippe and Queen Mathilde of Belgium, King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, and King Felipe and Queen Letizia of Spain.
