Spain’s King Felipe and Queen Letizia were seen waving to well-wishers as they left the Spanish Embassy at Westminster Hall on Sunday night.

Felipe, son of the disgraced former King Juan Carlos, is a distant cousin of the Queen and referred to Her Majesty as “dear Aunt Lilibeth” in a personal memorial following the Duke of Edinburgh’s death.

The king looked dapper in a black suit and tie as he and his stylish wife left the embassy at the Palace of Westminster.

Husband and wife crossed themselves and bowed their heads as they passed Her Majesty’s coffins. High-profile guests have access to a VIP entrance and platform, meaning they can avoid the queues that stretch across central London.

Around the same time, King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia of Sweden also entered the hall to pay their respects.

King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla are preparing to host 1,000 VIPs, including US President Joe Biden, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, at Buckingham Palace this evening.

The list of distinguished guests included the President of Ireland Michael D. Higgins, the Irish Taoiseach Michael Martin, the Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina Wazed and the First Lady of Colombia Veronica Alcacer GargĂ­a and the Minister of Foreign Affairs Alvaro Leyva.

However, it also includes a number of controversial strongmen, including Bolsonaro, who was filmed today giving a rousing speech from the windows of Brazil’s embassy in London to a jubilant, flag-waving crowd.

His allies hope his four-day international trip – first to London, then to a session of the UN General Assembly in New York – will sway some voters in the upcoming election, give him some clout after nearly four years at loggerheads with other world leaders and provide material for TV ads. .

And today, the Royal Saudi Embassy confirmed that Mohammed bin Salman, known by the acronym MBS, had been invited to the funeral.

He was due to hold talks with British Prime Minister Liz Truss on Sunday night despite international outrage after ordering Saudi agents to brutally kill and dismember Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey in 2018.

And Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the authoritarian ruler who jailed hundreds of journalists and business-likely dismantled Turkish democracy, will also attend the funeral.

China announced it would send its vice president, Wang Qishan, but parliamentary leaders barred him from traveling to the state.

Due to strained ties, Britain decided to invite ambassadors rather than heads of state from Iran, Nicaragua and North Korea. Meanwhile, Russia and Belarus are among a small group of countries completely excluded following Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
