Where can I watch the Queen’s funeral?

0

On Thursday 8 September at 6.30pm, the sad news of Queen Elizabeth II’s passing was announced to the nation and the world. Television channels across the globe cleared their schedules as eyes were glued to stations awaiting news while a new era of British monarchy began and Operation London Bridge entered phase one.

What followed next was a series of events to commemorate the life of Britain’s longest-serving monarch; King Charles was declared the new ruler as tradition dictated, a bank holiday was declared for the day of the Queen’s funeral, and Her Majesty’s coffin began the long journey from Balmoral to London. 

At the procession through the streets of London on Wednesday 14 September, hundreds of thousands of people are expected to queue by Westminster Abbey to pay their respects before Monday’s funeral, which will see a service take place at the abbey before the Queen is transported to Windsor Castle for an intimate internment.

Where can I watch the Queen’s funeral?

Television

It is expected that every major television channel around the world will be screening the state funeral live throughout Monday 19 September.

Accredited media companies have been listed as BBC, ITN, Sky and the Foreign Broadcaster Service – the company that manages broadcasting on behalf of foreign outlets.

Other UK channels are expected to follow the lead of these global organisations, with coverage and commentary throughout the morning and afternoon.

In-person

The day will begin ahead of the 11am funeral service as the Queen’s coffin is carried from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey. Members of the public will not be permitted to enter Westminster Abbey, with seating areas expected to host 2,000 heads of state, members of parliament and notable figures.

Thousands of visitors are expected to line the streets of Westminster come Monday. Screens will be showing the funeral procession on Wednesday in Hyde Park, with news on whether they will show Monday’s state funeral yet to be announced.
