Biden says he’ll attend Queen Elizabeth’s funeral

President Biden said Friday that he plans to attend Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral, following the British head of state’s death the previous day.


“Yes. I don’t know what the details are yet but I’ll be going,” Biden told reporters while on a trip to Ohio.


The funeral could take place on Sept. 19, which would be 10 days after her death, at Westminster Abbey in London. The plan for the queen’s death, which is called Operation London Bridge, has been in place for decades and outlines the protocol for each day up until the funeral.
