    Over the next week and a half, several events will take place leading up to a funeral at Westminster Abbey in London, followed by the committal and burial at the St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, London.

    Queen Elizabeth II of Britain died at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle, on Thursday, ending a 70-year reign, which was the longest in UK history. Her death has set an exhaustively planned campaign of royal protocols in motion leading up to her funeral after 10 days. September 8 will be considered as D-Day in palace code and on D-Day+10 should be the funeral.
    The planning to honour the 96-year-old's life began decades ago, in the strictest of secrecy, under the code name 'London Bridge'.
    Over the next week and a half, several events will take place leading up to a funeral at Westminster Abbey in London, followed by the committal and burial at the St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle, London.
