World leaders put differences aside for Queen’s funeral



In a rare occasion, world leaders are expected to come together for Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, despite their differences

There are very few people in the world who can bring countries together, to put their differences aside. However, Queen Elizabeth II is the exception.

World leaders will unite for Her Majesty’s funeral, even if it’s only momentarily.

Her Majesty’s funeral will be a sombre day for millions, despite nationality or location. 

World leaders are set to put their differences aside, to remember the longest-reigning monarch. 

The Queen’s funeral will be the most important gathering of world leaders since J.F. Kennedy’s funeral in 1963. 

The funeral will be held at Westminster Abbey, in London. In what is set to be one of the UK’s biggest police operations in history.

The security detail of this moment has been planned for years, with patrol on the ground and snipers in the sky.

Strict rules for world leaders

There are strict rules for world leaders attending the funeral, and will most likely be rules they’re not accustomed to. 

British authorities have put a ban on private jets and have advised world leaders to use commercial planes instead.

They have also advised against private cars and will instead organise for leaders to be bussed to the funeral.

Numbers for each leader are limited to the head of state or their designated representative and significant other.

Air Force One will carry U.S. President Biden, yet there’s no word if Former President Trump will get an invite.

September 19, 2022 will be a day like no other, when differences are momentarily put to rest, to pay respect to Queen Elizabeth II.

The coffin will travel from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey on the State Gun Carriage of the Royal Navy.

King Charles III and key members of the royal family will walk behind the coffin.

Her Majesty will be laid to rest in the royal vault, beside her mother and father and her sisters ashes.

And at last, Her Majesty will be reunited with her husband, Prince Philip.
