Britain prepares for Queen Elizabeth's funeral

Great Britain has not buried a monarch since the death of King George VI in 1952. So, royal watchers anticipate Monday's funeral for Queen Elizabeth II will be a blend of grand spectacle and personal grief not seen in generations. Correspondent Seth Doane talks with former BBC anchor Jon Sopel and professor Pauline Maclaren about what to expect from Monday's service at Westminster Abbey, which has been decades in the planning. (Watch the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II live on CBS Monday, September 19 beginning at 5:30 a.m. ET, or online at, and on the CBS News mobile app. You may also stream live via Paramount+.)


Queen's procession to Westminster Hall

A formal procession will transport Queen Elizabeth II's coffin from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall, where she will lie in state for public viewing until Monday's funeral. King Charles III and other royal family members will accompany the coffin during the procession. CBS News correspondent Lana Zak and Nigel Fletcher, a political historian at King's College London, joined "CBS News Mornings" from London to discuss the day's events and the new king's role.
