Britain’s longest-reigning monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, passed away on Thursday at the age of 96, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.

Questions about what will happen next now that the queen has passed away arise because it has been 70 years since Britain’s monarchy changed.

The U.K. In order to ensure a seamless transition following the queen’s passing and to properly honour her historic reign, the government and the royal family have been making preparations for years.

Here’s what’s likely to take place in the coming days.

When and where will Elizabeth’s funeral take place?

The queen’s funeral will take place 10 days after her death, following the traditional observance of a national period of mourning.

Elizabeth is anticipated to be the first sovereign to be buried at Westminster Abbey since 1760 when her funeral is held there.

International dignitaries and leaders of state are anticipated to attend the queen’s funeral.

Westminster Abbey can house more than 8,000 people, as it did for the queen’s coronation, but it often only seats 2,200 worshippers.

Where will the queen be buried?

The queen will likely be buried privately in Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Chapel, where she spent a large portion of her later years.

When will Prince Charles’ coronation take place?

Following the passing of his mother, Charles, the eldest child of Elizabeth and Philip, ascended to the throne of England.

The day after the queen passes away, the Accession Council, comprised of government representatives, is anticipated to convene at St. James’s Palace in London to formally appoint Charles as the new monarch.

It will probably be some months before Charles is crowned.

For instance, the queen was crowned on June 2, 1953, 14 months after she succeeded to the kingdom following the demise of her father.

Will Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall become queen?

Yes, it is anticipated that Camilla and Charles will be crowned together.

The queen asked that Camilla be referred to be Queen Consort after Charles became king in February.
