The state funeral of Queen Elizabeth II will be held on Monday Sept. 19 at 6am ET (11am London time).

The service will be an hour long and will be the first funeral for a monarch held at Westminster Abbey since King George II’s in 1760. Anglican priest David Hoyle, the Dean of Westminster, will conduct the service.

Approximately 2,000 guests are set to attend the Queen’s state funeral, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Governor General Mary Simon.

A national commemorative ceremony will take place in Ottawa at 12pm ET.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
