Queen Elizabeth funeral live updates: Foreign leaders, family arrive

The U.K. and much of the world are mourning Queen Elizabeth II, who will be celebrated at a funeral at Westminster Abbey Monday and later laid to rest beneath St George’s Chapel with her husband of 73 years, her sister Margaret and her parents.

The state funeral is expected to be the biggest gathering of world leaders in years, draw millions of people to the streets of London, and billions more to their TVs and computer screens. The funeral and events surrounding it were designed to help unite the royal family and divided subjects while helping ensure the monarchy survives another century.

Prince George and Princess Charlotte, the eldest children of Prince William and Catherine, Princess of Wales, will join their parents for their grandmother’s funeral.
