Buckingham Palace has launched new particulars in regards to the elaborate proceedings deliberate for Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, who thought fastidiously about how the world would see her off.
The 11 a.m. service at London’s Westminster Abbey, the place Elizabeth was married and topped, goals to pay tribute to her “outstanding reign and lifelong of service as Head of State, Nation and Commonwealth,” Buckingham Palace mentioned in a information launch Sunday. The Very Rev. David Hoyle, dean of Westminster, will lead the state funeral, with the sermon given by the archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. and Proper Hon. Justin Welby.
