Flags decreased in grieving for the Queen will fly at full-mast once again after the conference.

Exposed air there was a lot of splendor as well as spectacle.

State Trumpeters from the House Department seemed their heralds from the veranda over the Friary Court at the strike of 8pm AEST.

The Garter King of Arms, checking out the initial as well as Principal Pronouncement from the veranda, announced “God Save The King”.

The National Anthem was played.

Among the orders authorized by King Charles III throughout the pronouncement event, was for the day of the Queen’s funeral service to be a National holiday. A day has actually not yet been verified.

Participants of the general public were confessed right into the Friary Court to witness the pronouncement of King Charles III.

They came, bring their pet dogs, folding chair as well as youngsters as well as the infirm on strolling sticks as well as wheelchair scooters.


Touchdown in London from Melbourne, Shelley Dour made Buckingham Royal residence her initial port of phone call.

The Australian intended to belong to background as well as handled the timing to be among simply 1000 to see King Charles III declared majesty at St James.

“It is a bit odd, the whole concept of having a King and him being King but he has wanted this for a long long time so hopefully it is everything that he hoped,” Ugly informed NewsCorp Australia. “The Queen had an amazing life. This is my first port of call.”

Standing in the line to go into St James, Dour proceeded: “I didn’t know how it would be when I was here. It is going to be interesting to see how it unfolds over the next week. It is a pretty momentous occasion so I wanted to be here and possibly take a picture for my kids to tell them when I am old and grey that I was there when the king was proclaimed.”

A touch of Australians wishing to belong of the historic minute were amongst those making it right into the unique watching location at St James. It was open to the general public on a very first come, initially offered basis.

Some awaited hrs while others signed up with the line while on their early morning stroll like Belinda Miles.

“This was a morning walk and also just to take in the occasion, which is pretty historic,” stated Miles, that has actually stayed in London for the previous 7 years as well as originates from Potts Factor in Sydney. “It has been quite sombre. It is a day of history with some more to come during the week and it is really lovely to be a part of it.”

Kristy Longford from the Gold Coastline occurred to be in London on vacations with her companion, Mark, when the Queen passed away.

“It is a really special time. This is a part of our history so we wanted to be here today for the special occasion,” Longford stated.

Asked what she considered the brand-new King Charles III, Longford bewared with her words.

“It will be interesting. Certainly how he has been over the past couple of days, there definitely seems to be a different feeling in London as we give condolences to the Queen but also celebrate the changeover to the King.”


It comes as Queen Elizabeth’s funeral service will certainly be an occasion unlike anything the globe has actually ever before seen.

While we have actually observed large imperial funeral services at Westminster Abbey in the past, no ruling majesty has actually been farewelled because solemn area in greater than 250 years.

Prior to her fatality, the Queen contributed in the plans for her very own funeral service, the strategies as well as methods long gone over as well as also practiced by Buckingham Royal residence to fulfill any type of backup.

According to “Operation London Bridge” – the code word for the large logisitical as well as safety plans behind the grieving duration – the funeral service is set up to happen 11 days after the Queen’s fatality. However as the information of her death arised late on Thursday, regional time, it is currently anticipated the funeral service will certainly happen 12 days later on, on Monday September 19, beginning at 11am.

The Covid-19 precautions which were in place for Prince Philip’s funeral in April 2021 – leading to those moving images of the Queen left to mourn her husband of 73 years on her own – have thankfully been lifted, which means Westminster Abbey can accommodate its capacity crowd of 2000.

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby is anticipated to lead the hour-long service, with the Royal Families and heads of state of many nations expected to attend.

“Practically every nation on earth is going to want to send their king, queen, prime minister or president for the funeral,” former Metropolitan police commander Bob Broadhurst told PA Media.

Australia’s Governor-general David Hurley and Prime Minister Anthony Albanese will both be in attendance, while our very own royal, Princess Mary, is likely to be there with husband Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark. (All the European monarchies are expected to be well represented.)

US President Joe Biden has said he will be there, and Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip said “If we find the opportunity we would like to be present at this ceremony”.

Somewhat less clear is the provision for any celebrity guests.

While celebrities have been an increasing presence at royal events over the years – George and Amal Clooney were at Prince Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle in 2018 despite, reportedly, barely knowing the couple – the gravity of the occasion suggests it will be unlikely there will be too many Hollywood blow-ins.

That said, there can always be exceptions. Royal commentator Neil Sean has told British TV that he wouldn’t be surprised if Tom Cruise scored an invitation, after the Top Gun actor’s star turn at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations earlier this year.

The Royal Family’s faultlines and sensitivities are likely to be scrutinised on the day, especially any signs of tension between Prince William and Harry.

During the procession for Prince Philip last year, the two feuding brothers were separated by their cousin, Peter Phillips, leading to speculation a similar arrangement could be put into place for Queen Elizabeth’s funeral service.

The Duchess of Sussex’s presence will certainly also be a matter of intense interest, especially after she stayed in London and did not join the rest of the royal family in the dash to Balmoral on Thursday evening as the Queen’s condition deteriorated.

Fox News Digital quoted one royal expert who said the Duchess may opt to return to California to be with her children Archie and Lilibet. Expect copious column inches to be written on this subject, either way.

King Charles is expected to play a part in the ceremony, just as the newly-crowned Elizabeth did for the funeral of her father, George VI, in 1952. (The young queen placed the standard of the Grenadier Guards on his coffin at the end of the service.)

Two minutes of silence will be observed out of respect for the monarch.

Queen Elizabeth’s funeral will be the first of a royal monarch to be televised. In 1952, Buckingham Palace agreed to the televising of the procession for George VI, but not the funeral itself – but even this screening was said to have prompted a mini boom in the sale of TV sets. It’s expected the Queen funeral will very likely set new records for live streaming services.

At this stage it is unclear whether King Charles will deliver a eulogy for his mother, or whether that part of formalities will be covered by the Archbishop.

(The then Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr George Carey, delivered the eulogy for the Queen Mother in 2002.)

After the funeral, the Queen’s casket will be taken in a procession from Westminster Abbey to Wellington Arch, where it will loaded into a hearse and driven to Windsor Castle.

That afternoon, starting at 4pm, the Queen will be laid to rest in a special vault at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle in a ceremony to be attended by members of the family only. The Queen’s casket will be positioned near her parents and sister Princess Margaret, who died in 2002, while the remains of the Duke of Edinburgh will be moved to sit alongside her.

The actual burial of the casket will take location even later on, at 7.30pm; again, this will be a family ceremony only.

Britain’s official mourning period will continue for seven days after the funeral service.
