The Queen's state funeral will lay the late monarch to rest this morning, with 2,000 people attending the service at Westminster Abbey. World leaders, including foreign royalty, will watch on while leading British figures conduct the ceremony with a series of dedications to the country's matriarch. While not leading the service today, the Archbishop of Canterbury has delivered a sermon as Church of England chief.
The Archbishop delivered his sermon early on in the funeral, after David Hoyle, the Dean of Westminster, opened the ceremony at 11am.
He said: “People of loving service are rare in any walk of life.
"Leaders of loving service are still rarer.
"But in all cases those who serve will be loved and remembered when those who cling to power and privileges are forgotten."
