·3 min read

Members of the royal family gathered for Queen Elizabeth's state funeral at Westminster Abbey on Monday, joining some 2,000 leaders and royals from around the world gather to pay their respects to the longest-reigning monarch in British history. As is customary, the royal seating chart at the state funeral was arranged in order of precedence — with even some of the seats themselves steeped in tradition.

Hello! reports that King Charles III and his wife, Queen Consort Camilla, were seated in an ornate pair of Canada Club chairs in the front row of the south lantern in the abbey. Those chairs, built in memory of Canadians who fell in World War II, are to be used only by the two most senior royals or the most senior royal and their spouse.
