Nasty during the funeral.
The funeral for Queen Elizabeth is currently taking place in Westminster Abbey. The same church in which she married her great love Prince Philip 75 years ago.
2,200 people are on hand to say goodbye to her majesty and among them are world leaders such as Joe Biden, Boris Johnson and Emmanuel Macron. Royalties from all over the world are also present. The Swedish royal family, with King Carl Gustaf and Queen Silvia traveled to London yesterday and are of course there. They got the very best seats, opposite the British royal family.
The security requirement is very large. All events have been canceled and Monday is also a red day around the country. Schools and shops have also closed. According to English media, nearly 10,000 police officers are on site and the military has also been called in to secure the funeral.
