Queen Elizabeth Funeral Updates: King Charles III leads a procession

King Charles III leads a procession of the coffin of his mother Queen Elizabeth II through London on Wednesday 

The body of Queen Elizabeth, who died last week, will be borne on a horse-drawn gun carriage from her Buckingham Palace home to Westminster Hall. 

The queen's funeral will take place in Westminster Abbey in front of 2,000 VIP guests, with the day declared a public holiday in Britain.

US President Joe Biden has confirmed he will attend, as will French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

No representative from Russia, Belarus, or Myanmar have been invited, says the BBC's James Landale. 

What is the funeral procession route?

Following the funeral service, the Queen's coffin will be drawn in a walking procession from the abbey to Wellington Arch, at London's Hyde Park Corner, before heading to Windsor by hearse. 

The Queen's coffin will make its final journey that afternoon to Windsor Castle, via the Long Walk.

Where will the Queen be buried?

St George's Chapel is the church regularly chosen by the Royal Family for weddings, christenings and funerals.
