Queen mourning period: what we can expect over the next 10 days

The Queen’s funeral is expected to be held 10 days after her death at the Westminister Abbey, the royal church. 

Flags are flying at half-mast as the United Kingdom begins mourning for its longest-serving monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.

Her coffin will be taken to Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen’s official residence in Edinburgh from the Balmoral Castle in Aberdeen where she died.

Her coffin will then be brought to St Giles Cathedral where it will be open for public to pay their last respects for 24 hours.

Her mortal remains will then be brought to the Buckingham Palace in London.

After 4 to 5 days. in a grand procession, the Queen’s coffin will be taken to Westminister Hall where it will be kept for 5 days for the public to bid her farewell.

The Queen’s funeral is expected to be held 10 days after her death at the Westminister Abbey, the royal church.

Two minutes silence will be observed across UK before the funeral service. After that the coffin will be taken to her final resting place, the St George’s Chapel inside Windsor Castle. She will be buried there with her husband Prince Philip and her ancestors.

It is a bittersweet moment for the United Kingdom. While it mourns, preparations will also begin to formalise the accession of King Charles, who became the country’s new monarch the moment the queen died.
