About five hundred world leaders including US President Joe Biden and France’s Emmanuel Macron are currently attending the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II. She was the longest serving monarch in the United Kingdom.

The Queen’s state funeral is taking place at Westminster Abbey in front of 2,000 people, in a historic service watched by millions in London, the UK and around the world.

King Charles III and his siblings – the Princess Royal, Duke of York and Earl of Wessex – had marched behind their mother’s coffin as it travelled from Westminster Hall, where the Queen had been lying in state for four days, to the ancient Abbey.
