Here’s Everything That’s Happening Leading Up To Queen Elizabeth II’s Funeral

Meanwhile, King Charles III and the Queen Consort (aka Queen Camilla) will travel via air from Edinburgh to Northern Ireland to receive condolences from its leaders on the death of his mother. They will begin at Hillsborough Castle. The King will meet with the secretary of state for Northern Ireland and party leaders and receive a message of condolence led by the speaker of the assembly. The King will then deliver a message. He and the Queen Consort will then attend a service of prayer and reflection at St. Anne’s Cathedral in Belfast before flying from Belfast to London.
