Queen Elizabeth II's funeral will take place on September 19. As it is a state funeral, no expense or effort is spared. We have collected all the important information for you.

When is the Queen's funeral?

The procedure: The funeral begins on Monday at 11 a.m. British time. Before that, the Queen's coffin, which has been in Westminster Hall until then, is transported the short way to Westminster Abbey.

A Navy gun carriage is used for this. King Charles and other members of the Royal Family will follow the coffin. 

Where is the Queen's funeral held? 

Guests at the funeral are seated in Westminster Abbey and the service begins. The Archbishop of Canterbury and the Dean of Westminster are likely to lead the service, the BBC reports. Prime Minister Liz Truss could give a reading.

Where is the Queen buried?

After the service, the coffin is taken to Wellington Arch in Hyde Park where it is loaded onto a hearse and then driven to Windsor.

Finally, the Queen is laid to rest at St George's Chapel in Windsor. There she is buried next to her husband Prince Philip in the King George VI Memorial Chapel.

The regents of European countries such as the Netherlands, Monaco, Spain and Sweden will attend the funeral. Even Japan's Emperor will arrive.

In addition, it is rumored that some stars are among the guests. Celebs who have close ties to royalty — like Elton John, the Beckhams, or Daniel Craig — could also be invited. Finally, of course, the entire Royal Family will be there, as well as the Queen's palace staff.

Queen's Funeral: Guests must follow these rules

There are some rules for the guests. Initially, each VIP may only bring one accompanying person. In addition, the guests should travel together, by scheduled flight and later by bus. This should make the organization easier and limit the chaos in London, which will be there anyway because of the numerous onlookers.

There is also a dress code. While most members of the Royal Family will appear in military uniform, the other guests will dress in black. Suits or tails for the men and dresses or suits for the women are a matter of course.

You should also make sure that the clothes are not too short. It would also be ideal to wear tights, as is customary at royal events.
