On Thursday 8 September at 6.30pm, the sad news of Queen Elizabeth II’s passing was announced to the nation and the world. What followed next was a series of events to commemorate the life of Britain’s longest-serving monarch; King Charles was declared the new ruler as tradition dictated, a bank holiday was declared for the day of the Queen's funeral, and Her Majesty's coffin began the long journey from Balmoral to London.
Hundreds of thousands of people are currently queuing to see the Queen lying in state before Monday’s funeral, which will see a service take place at the Westminster Abbey before the Queen is transported to Windsor Castle for an intimate internment. The day will begin ahead of the 11am funeral service as the Queen's coffin is carried from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey at 10.35am.
Here's everything we know about watching in London and at home.
