“Killing Night” fans may have spotted star Sandra Oh in the crowd. She was named to participate as a member of the Canadian delegation following her appointment to the Order of Canada in June. Olympian Mark Tewksbury and musician Gregory Charles were also part of the delegation, which was led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Also among the mourners were Bear Grylls, who met the Queen many times in his role as explorer and Chief Scout, and “Two and a Half Men’s” Sophie Winkleman. Winkleman, who played Zoey in the Charlie Sheen-led show, is married to Lord Frederick Windsor, who is 52nd in line to the throne.

Although the official list of those attending the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II has not yet been confirmed by the royal family, various heads of state have already confirmed their presence at the Westminster Abbey ceremony scheduled for Monday, September 19.

Buckingham Palace has revealed the full schedule of the funeral plans – which will start in London and end in Windsor – including the different categories of dignitaries who have been invited: representatives of world governments, foreign royal families, governors-general, prime ministers of the Kingdom and heads of state.

President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden will be in attendance, along with all Commonwealth leaders including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Indian President Droupadi Murmu and South African President Cyril Ramaphosa. They will be joined by the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, the President of France Emmanuel Macron, the First Lady of Ukraine Olena Zelenska and the presidents of Austria, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy and Poland, among others other representatives.

Of the royal family, the children of Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward will be at the ceremony. They will be joined by their significant others. The late Queen’s grandchildren – Prince William, Prince Harry, Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Princess Beatrice, Princess Eugenie, Lady Louise Windsor and James, Viscount Severn – will also be in attendance, The Telegraph reported.

Other Royals expected to attend the funeral ceremony include Queen Elizabeth II’s cousins: the Duke of Kent, Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Princess Alexandra and Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester. In addition, a long list of royals from other European countries such as Belgium, Denmark, Monaco, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain and Sweden, have already been confirmed to attend.

Six countries were excluded from the projected guest list: Russia, for invading Ukraine, and Belarus for organizing the barrage; Afghanistan, which is still under Taliban rule; Myanmar, due to the military coup of its government in the past year; Syria, where the UK has no diplomatic relations due to an ongoing civil war; and Venezuela, which also has no diplomatic ties to the UK.

On Sunday, King Charles will meet with heads of state and official overseas guests at Buckingham Palace.

For those in the States, Monday’s ceremony will be available to watch on NBC, CNN, ABC and Fox News on cable television. BBC America will also broadcast the state funeral live at Westminster Abbey beginning at 4:00 am EST. In the UK, live coverage will be available on BBC One, BBC News, and Sky News.
