Many Australians have travelled to the United Kingdom to attend Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral after peacefully passing away at her country residence in Balmoral on 8 September.

The Queen has gone against tradition one final time as her service will be held at Westminster Hall to commemorate the location where she married Prince Philip and was crowned Queen.

However, she will be buried at St George’s Chapel in Windsor and her beloved husband who died in 2021 will be exhumed and laid to rest by her side.

In addition to the invitations to Australia’s Heads of State, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese announced that the Palace invited 10 everyday Australians who made “extraordinary contributions to their communities, and who represent Australian culture and values”.

The 10 everyday Australians who will represent Australia at Her Majesty’s funeral are:

Dylan Alcott AO – 2022 Australian of the Year

Valmai Dempsey – 2022 Senior Australian of the Year

Dr Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr Baumann AM, 2021 Senior Australian of the Year

Shanna Whan – 2022 Australian of the Year Local Hero
