Canadian actress Sandra Oh, 51, has arrived at the state funeral of the Queen in the procession of national honours. The Killing Eve star looked solemn as she arrived at the service in Westminster Abbey today (Monday, September 19).

Sandra joins the Canadian delegation as a member of the Order of Canada, which is the country’s second highest civilian honour created by the Queen in 1967.

Sandra received the honour in June thanks to her success on stage and screen.

The Canadian delegation is led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau.

Current and former governor generals and past prime ministers have joined them along with musician Gregory Charles and Olympic swimmer Mark Tewksbury.

Prime Minister Trudeau arrived in the UK over the weekend and paid his respects to the Queen.

He visited Her Majesty lying in state in Westminster Hall and later met King Charles III at Buckingham Palace.

Justin and Sophie also visited Downing Street for a meeting with Liz Truss.

Paying tribute to the Queen, Justin said the Queen was “one of his favourite people in the world”.

Tweeting from the official government Twitter account, the PM wrote: “This afternoon at Buckingham Palace, I met with His Majesty King Charles III.  

“I offered my condolences to him and members of the Royal Family, as they mourn the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

“My thoughts, and the thoughts of many Canadians, continue to be with them.”

Other celebrity attendees include Bear Grylls who was the Chief Scout of The Scouting Association, which the Queen was a patron.

Rod Stewart’s wife Penny Lancaster is also at Westminster Abbey on duty as part of the City of London Police.

Penny confirmed to GMB that she would be at the late monarch’s funeral after working the Queen’s memorial service at St Paul’s Cathedral last week.

She also explained that she had “signed the oath of Office of Constable to Her Majesty the Queen” back in April 2021.

The Loose Women panellist said: “It was a great privilege to work at the Queen’s memorial service at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday.

“I signed the oath of Office of Constable to Her Majesty the Queen just over a year ago, April last year.

“Just as the seamless tie between Her Majesty and King Charles III, my oath will now be with the King.”

Penny added that she is “very proud to be able to serve” during such a “historic moment” for Britain.

You can watch the Queen’s funeral live on BBC, ITV and Sky.
