London, The Gulf Observer: Westminster Abbey – where the Queen’s funeral will be held – can hold up to 2,000 people.

It will soon be full of Royal Family members, world leaders, politicians, monarchs from other countries, public figures and those who worked with the Queen, all paying their last respects.

So, who exactly can we expect to see at the Queen’s funeral?

The late monarch’s family will of course be there to mourn their mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

It has been confirmed that Prince George and Princess Charlotte will attend.

Her four children – King Charles III, the Princess Royal, the Duke of York, and Prince Edward – will be present, as will Camilla, the Queen Consort, and the Countess of Wessex, and the monarch’s grandchildren – princes William and Harry, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall, princesses Beatrice and Princess Eugenie, and Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn.

The Duke of Kent, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Princess Alexandra, and Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester – who are the Queen’s cousins – are also likely to be there.

Spouses of all close family would be expected to be present too, including Catherine, the Princess of Wales, and the Duchess of Sussex.

Members of European royal families will be attending too, including Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako of Japan; King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima of the Netherlands; King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain; Juan Carlos I, former King of Spain, and his wife Sofia; King Philip and Queen Mathilde of Belgium; Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary; King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden; and King Harald V and Queen Sonja of Norway.

And away from high-profile figures, some of the Queen’s closest staff, including her ladies-in-waiting and footmen, will want to be there to say a final goodbye.
