the Queen's coffin will be placed in Westminster Hall for four days before the funeral. According to officials, there are probably more than a million people.


The Queen was crowned and married in 1947 at Westminster Abbey, where official burial ceremonies are expected to take place. About 2,000 people will attend, including royal families in Europe and world leaders.


President Joe Biden announced on Friday that he would attend the service despite not knowing the details yet. It is not known whether previous US presidents will be invited.


According to a report from CNN on Friday, Biden will make this choice for the UK.


According to two diplomatic representatives, Buckingham Palace will leave it up to each state,

  •  said Jeff Zeleny, CNN's chief national correspondent.
  • Barack Obama, a former president, has invited George W.
  • Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter to Nelson Mandela's funeral in 2013.


"So there's a protocol to invite other presidents."


 "Who knows, perhaps in the spirit of tolerance and giving President Biden will invite Donald Trump on Air Force One. I doubt this will happen, but I expect some kind of bipartisan delegation. "


  • Donald Trump, a previous president, on the other hand
  • who visited the Queen on three official visits throughout his presidency
  • has been a staunch supporter of the King. After news of her death
  • Trump posted a lengthy eulogy of the Queen on Truth Social.

On the other hand, after the President's September 1 speech claiming that "MAGA Republicans" posed a threat to American democracy, Trump and Biden may be at odds more than ever.


CNN's Jake Tapper said he thought it would be a "smart" move for the president to ask him and see if he would go as he spoke about whether orTrump would not be invited to the burial by Biden.


"I don't think former President Trump would want to be affiliated with the presidential plane, and I think he might prefer his private jet anyway," Tapper said.
