Queen’s funeral: Invitations to leaders and a revelation to Donald Trump | News




President Biden surprised the White House on Friday when he told reporters he planned to travel to London for the Queen’s funeral.

Former presidents have not attended the last two state funerals in Britain – for George VI in 1952 and Winston Churchill in 1965 – but Biden will be among dozens of heads of state and government arriving in the capital before the service next Monday.

The leaders of most Commonwealth countries are expected to attend the funeral at Westminster Abbey, including Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand’s prime minister – a journey that will take almost 24 hours – and her Australian counterpart, Anthony Albanese. Justin Trudeau, the Canadian Prime Minister, has also confirmed that he will attend.
