The state funeral for Queen Elizabeth will be held on Sept. 19, 11 days after her death on Sept. 8 at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

What time is the Queen’s funeral?

Proceedings will begin at 10:35 a.m. local time (5:35 a.m. ET) when the Queen’s coffin will be taken by carriage from Westminster Hall in London – where it has been lying in state for the past four days – to Westminster Abbey. The state funeral will begin at 11 a.m. local time (6 a.m. ET). After the funeral, the Queen’s coffin will be carried from Westminster Abbey to Wellington Arch near Buckingham Palace on a horse-drawn gun carriage. From London, the coffin will be driven to Windsor for a committal service at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, which will begin at about 4 p.m. local time (11 a.m. ET). The Queen’s final resting place will be in the George VI Memorial Chapel, alongside her late husband, Prince Philip.
