How to watch Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on TV

The queen died on September 8 at the age of 96 at her Scottish estate in Balmoral.
King Charles III gave the order for a UK-wide public holiday on September 19, after he was formally confirmed as the new king on September 10.
Mourners lined the streets of London to watch the Queen’s coffin travel in an armed carriage in a solemn procession from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall, where it will lie in state until the morning of her funeral.

On Monday morning, the Queen’s lying status will end. The casket will then travel in procession once more to Westminster Abbey for the state funeral, which is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. local time (6 a.m. ET).

After the funeral, the coffin will again be carried in procession from Westminster Abbey to Wellington Arch. From there, it will travel to Windsor. Once in Windsor, the hearse will travel to St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle for the burial service.
