Queen Elizabeth-II Funeral: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II will be cremated on 19 September. Many leaders from all over the world will attend the funeral of the Queen. During this, an amount of more than 7 million US dollars (about Rs 59 crore) will be spent on security. Queen Elizabeth died on 8 September at the age of 96 at Balmoral Castle in Scotland.
According to the New York Post, a one-day operation during Queen Elizabeth’s funeral will cost the largest amount in British history. British Mi5 and Mi6 intelligence agencies, London’s Metropolitan Police and the Secret Service will work together to protect foreign leaders at Monday’s funeral. This is the largest operation ever conducted by the police of the United Kingdom.
William-Kate’s wedding will cost more
Earlier in the year 2011, there was heavy police deployment at the wedding of Prince William and Kate. According to the New York Post, the cost to the police for the 2011 wedding was an estimated US$7.2 million. The whole of London will be covered with heavy security during Queen Elizabeth’s funeral. The New York Post quoted Simon Morgan, a former Royal Security official, as saying that parts of the city have already been closed and it is likely that more roads will be closed before the funeral.
Millions of people expected to come
About 750,000 people are expected to attend the funeral, which is much more than Will and Kate’s wedding. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have also been granted royal protection during the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, who lost their right to taxpayer-funded security when they left their royal duties. Most of the dignitaries will take shared buses for the funeral. However, some leaders such as US President Joe Biden will make their own arrangements.
