How world leaders were bused to Queen Elizabeth’s funeral today

International, World News
The funeral service for the late Queen Elizabeth II is being held today in the United Kingdom. The landmark event at the Westminster Abbey in London has seen numerous leaders from around the world arrive at the invitation of King Charles III.

At the moment the Queen died, the throne passed immediately and without ceremony to the heir, Charles, the former Prince of Wales. But there are a number of practical – and traditional – steps which he must go through to be crowned King. © NADAV KANDER What will he be called? One of his first acts is to decide whether to reign as King Charles III, or take another name.
