World leaders put differences aside for Queen’s funeral

Published

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.

Pink-coloured pigeon rescued in New York

Pigeons come in a whole range of colours, but it seems pink isn’t one of them

That’s exactly what happened in New York though, where a bright-coloured bird was rescued.

Wildlife groups believe the pigeon was dyed as part of a gender reveal ceremony.

The feathery friend was suffering from malnutrition when it was found in Madison Square Park.

In a statement, the Wild Bird Fund says they should never be dyed because of risks like starvation and even death.

It went on to say the “poor bird has it bad enough unable to find food in the wild, fly well or escape predators.”

“But being a bright, unusual colour makes him even more of a target.”

The two individuals in the dancing video were reportedly detained after posting the clip to their social media accounts – which have a combined following of more than two million people.

Published

Donald Trump has described the investigation into his company as the “biggest witch hunt” in the history of the United States during a formal deposition.

In September 2022, the New York Attorney General Letitia James, announced she would be looking into the Trump organisation’s business practices.

James alleges the former president “falsely inflated his net worth by billions of dollars to unjustly enrich himself and cheat the system”.

The lawsuit also takes aim at some of Trump’s children, and executives of his business.

During the deposition tape, Trump can be seen reading a lengthy statement.

During this, the former president asserts his constitutional right to not answer questions, while accusing James of investigating him out of political spite.
