A day before Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, Buckingham Palace has released new details about the elaborate proceedings planned for England’s longest-reigning monarch.
The 11 a.m. service at London’s Westminster Abbey, where Elizabeth was married and crowned, aims to pay tribute to her “remarkable reign and lifetime of service as Head of State, Nation and Commonwealth,” the palace said in a news release Sunday. The dean of Westminster, the Very Rev. David Hoyle, will lead the state funeral, with the sermon given by the archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Rev. and Right Hon. Justin Welby.
