Queen Elizabeth’s funeral: Biden will not travel with a delegation next week


The White House announced Sunday that Biden had formally accepted the invitation and would be joined by the first lady.

Previous state funerals, such as that of former South African President Nelson Mandela, have allowed the incumbent president to bring a delegation of officials to the event.

The Queen’s state funeral will take place on September 19 at Westminster Abbey, and she will rest in state at Westminster Hall from Wednesday, Buckingham Palace announced on Saturday.
