How world leaders were bused to Queen Elizabeth’s funeral today
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 of leaders from around the world arrive at the invitation of King Charles III.
In an interesting turn, however, all heads of state and royals were billed to appear at the Westminster Abbey via a bus with the exception of the US president, Joe Biden who was driven in his office’s official vehicle, ‘The Beast’.
Though this move raised some eyebrows, it was followed through.
These leaders are there to commiserate with the British people and pay their last respect to the former head of the Commonwealth.
The queen died on Thursday, September 8 at age 96.
Some of the images that have popped up so far include a coach full of African leaders including the Kenyan President, William Ruto and President of Tanzania, President Samia Suluhu.
Below are more visuals from the ceremony.
