By Ipsita Kabiraj / September 17, 2022

Queen Elizabeth II died peacefully on September 8, 2022, at Balmoral Castle in Scotland at the age of 96. Let's take a look at where, when, and how to watch The Queen's funeral online from anywhere in the world.

Queen Elizabeth II is the longest-reigning British monarch. She took the throne in 1953 at the age of 25 and led the country through periods of significant social transformation. Her funeral will bring to an end a period of national grief in the UK, as the ceremony will be held at Westminster Abbey, followed by a service in St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, where she will be buried alongside her late husband, Prince Philip. Those attending include the newly crowned King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Consort, along with the Queen's children and their spouses, such as Princess Anne and Sir Timothy Laurence, Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, and Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex. We can also expect to see the Queen's grandchildren and their partners, like Prince William and Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Peter Philips, Zara and Mike Tindall, Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, and others.

Apart from that, several world leaders are expected to be in attendance, including US President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden, New Zealand's prime minister Jacinda Ardern, Japan's Emperor Naruhito, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, and Turkey's president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, as well as members of the royal families of Spain, Belgium, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, and the Netherlands.

The Queen's funeral will take place at Westminster Abbey on September 19, 2022, and you can watch it on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
