Queen Elizabeth's funeral set for Sept. 19 at Westminster Abbey

Britain's Royal Family has announced that the state funeral for Queen Elizabeth II will take place on Monday September 19 in London.

The Queen died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on Thursday.

A large number of people have since visited the castle, and Buckingham Palace in London, to pay tribute to the country's longest-serving monarch.

The Royal Family announced on Saturday that the state funeral for the Queen will begin at 11 a.m. on September 19 at Westminster Abbey in the capital.

The Queen's coffin will leave Balmoral Castle on Sunday. It will be placed at a cathedral in Edinburgh before being taken to London on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, the coffin will be moved to Westminster Hall, which is the oldest building on the Parliamentary estate.

There, the Queen's body will lie in state for four days to allow the public make condolence visits.

The state funeral will be held at Westminster Abbey, where coronation ceremonies for Britain's monarchs have been held.

September 19 has been declared as a public holiday, which is called a bank holiday in Britain.
