Queen Elizabeth II's funeral: A look at preparations and flashback to Royal Funerals

As more details about Queen Elizabeth II's funeral on Monday emerge, one thing is certain: it will be unlike anything we've ever seen. Maybe the monarch is addressing her family for the last time, hoping to unite not only her subjects in the United Kingdomand her realms but also global spectators.

Worldwide leaders of state, public personalities, and Republic figures will give an embroidery of force at Westminster Monastery to honor England's longest-ruling monarch.

"Her Highness' loss has left many throughout various landmasses with a significant feeling of misfortune," says The Duke of Norfolk, who transports official events, including state funeral services.He claims the memorial event will "resonate with people of all beliefs while honoring Her Highness and her family's wishes"

The late monarch described various extraordinary connections, like her flutist playing a mourner outside her window. The queen chose the music and readings for the service, which will end with a two-minute quiet.

State funeral rites in the United Kingdom are generally reserved for rulers. The only English king not to be honored in this way was Edward VIII, whose stunning capitulation is why Elizabeth has the privilege. Exemptions exist. Sir Winston Churchill's state funeral was in 1965.

In the State Funeral service, marines from the Regal Naval force pull the rifle carriage, not ponies.

“The State Firearm Carriage is a field weapon under the watchful eye of the Illustrious naval force since 1901," a senior Royal palace official explains.

The State Weapon Carriage was used for the funerals of King Edward VII, Lord George V, King George VI, Winston Churchill, and Louis Mountbatten.

A flashback of Royal Funerals

Plans for PrincePhilip's majestic burial were adjusted due to pandemic guidelines. We all remember seeing the Sovereign: impassive and alone at the service. Like his wife, Philip prepared his burial ceremony and indicated he wanted "complain" without words or commendations. Grenadier Guards carried his casket on a Land Rover, the Duke hand-crafted for the occasion while his children and grandkids walked behind. The 2002 Queen Mother memorial service was better. Like her daughter, her body lay in Westminster Lobby so the public may pay their respects. Her memorial ceremony ended with a two-minute silence at Westminster Monastery. The Sovereign's sister Princess Margaret died two or three months before their mum. Her memorial service was extraordinarily calm, and her body was cremated.

Diana's 1997 memorial service was likely the most illustrious worldwide. The last resting site was handled through London for an hour and a half. When the parade passed St. James' Palace, her ex-King Charles, her brother Duke Spencer, and her sons William, 15, and Harry, 12, walked behind the casket. It's one of the most powerful scenes from the event, and the family has subsequently learned how terrible it was. The brothers also walked behind their grandfather's grave last year with their cousin Peter Phillips. At the Sovereign's funeral, they'll walk side by side, putting aside their differences to mourn their grandmother.
