    Queen Elizabeth II to be buried monday September 19

    Buckingham Palace has announced monday next week 19 September as date for the burial of late Queen Elizabeth

    The date is at the end of an official 10-day period of mourning, after the death of Queen Elizabeth, aged 96 on Thursday September 08

    The funeral will be held at 11a.m at Westminster Abbey.

    Last Saturday September 10, Charles, her son, was officially proclaimed King.

    He shortly afterwards ordered that the day of his mother’s funeral be a bank holiday.

    King Charles III confirmed the public holiday during his first meeting with the privy council in St. James’s Palace – the first in history to be televised.

    It was gathered that Queen’s funeral would be the first state funeral to be held since that of her first Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill, in 1965.

    Though Queen Elizabeth’s father, George VI, chose St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle for his service, his daughter’s body will be taken to Westminster Abbey, where she was married and crowned, and then to Windsor to be interred in the royal vault.

    The palace added that prior to the Queen’s funeral, she would lie in state in Westminster Hall for four days to allow the public to pay their respects.

    The Queen’s coffin has got to the Ballroom at Balmoral Castle and will be driven to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh on Sunday.

    The funeral programme showed that on Monday, a procession, including the King and members of the royal family, will be formed as the coffin is taken to the city’s St. Giles’ Cathedral and stays there until Tuesday for people in Scotland to pay their respects.

    On Tuesday evening, the coffin-accompanied by Princess Anne – will be flown from Edinburgh Airport to RAF Northolt and then driven to Buckingham Palace.

    On Wednesday afternoon, it will be moved to Westminster Hall, where it will lie in state until the morning of the state funeral, where members of the public will have the opportunity to visit Westminster Hall to pay their respects to the Queen.
