Not only did many members of the British royal family arrive to show their love and respect for the departed Queen Elizabeth II, but so did many esteemed leaders from around the world. From the United States to New Zealand, world leaders of all kinds arrived to mourn and pay tribute to the longest-reigning monarch.
On Sept 8, Queen Elizabeth II passed away at the age of 96, leaving behind an ever-growing family and a long reign of 70 years. After quite a few twists and turns, and last-minute decisions, her funeral has finally come. In the early morning hours of Sept 19, world leaders, family members, and royal family member fans gathered around Westminster Abbey to pay their respects.
With over 2,000 guests in attendance at the State funeral, it’s been a bit chaotic to see who’s coming. But out of the thousands, onlookers have been able to see leaders like Japan’s Emperor Naruhito, New Zealand‘s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau arrived. And this is only a few of the amount coming to the funeral.
