President Biden shares condolences he gave King Charles

The UK will hold a minute of silence at 8 pm local time (3 pm ET) Sunday as the country has one more day of queuing to see Queen Elizabeth’s coffin lying in state.

The numbers of mourners continued to grow with a line stretching at least 5 miles. On Saturday, US President Joe Biden and other world leaders and dignitaries flew into London ahead of the queen’s state funeral on Monday.

And the government shared details where the public can watch the day’s procession, including 125 cinemas screening the funeral. In addition to a number of viewing areas along the route, mourners will be able to watch on screens set up in Hyde Park, close to Buckingham Palace. There will also be screening sites at several towns and cities across the UK

President Joe Biden signs a book of condolence at Lancaster House in London following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The president signed the official condolence book and attended a reception Sunday at Buckingham Palace hosted by King Charles III before he attends the queen’s funeral at Westminster Abbey on Monday.

Biden is among many world leaders who traveled to the United Kingdom to honor Queen Elizabeth’s long reign.

During his visit, Biden told media the queen “was the same in person as her image: decent, honorable and all about service.”

“Our hearts go out to the royal family, King Charles and all of the family. It’s a loss that leaves a giant hole and sometimes you think you’ll never overcome it,” the president said, adding that he told Charles the queen will be with him “every step of the way, every moment.”
