BRITS will pay their respects to the longest reigning monarch as the Queen’s funeral takes place at Westminster Abbey.
The service will include a two-minute silence.
When is the two minutes silence for the Queen’s funeral?
The Queen’s funeral takes place today, 10 days after her death.
Her state funeral will be held at Westminster Abbey after her coffin has been removed from Westminster Hall where she lay in state.
The state funeral service began at 11 a.m. and is expected to last an hour.
The national two-minute silence will be held at approximately 11:55 a.m.
The two-minute silence will be triggered by the sounding of the final post, which is expected to occur at 11:55 a.m.
This will cause the nation to come to a standstill for two minutes.
How can you keep the two minutes of silence?
This is the second occasion to observe a national two-minute silence for the Queen.
There was a minute’s silence on Sunday, September 18, 2022.
The nation has been urged to take a quiet moment of reflection the night before the Queen’s funeral.
The minute of silence was held at 8 p.m. on Sunday.
The last two minutes of silence come at the end of the Queen’s state funeral.
This means the final farewell to the monarch, as her funeral service, where she is buried, will not be televised.
The two minutes of silence are a sign of respect and a time for reflection.
During this time, one can reflect on how the Queen has served the country for 70 years, the longest-serving monarch in British history.
She earned the throne after her father, King George VI, died on February 6, 1952.
That was the date she became queen, but she was crowned a year later on June 2, 1953.
This was because they allow time for the coronation celebrations to pay respects to the late monarch.
In fact, the day the Queen earned her title wasn’t even celebrating the platinum jubilee.
The same will happen for the official coronation of King Charles and therefore no date has been confirmed when his coronation will take place.
How can I see the Queen’s funeral?
In the UK, several television and radio stations will broadcast the funeral live.
These include BBC, ITV and Sky and BBC iPlayer offers free online live stream.
In the US, the funeral will be broadcast live on NBC News and its streaming service, NBC News Now.
CNN, ABC and Fox News will also broadcast the funeral.
