There Will Be A Memorial Service For Queen Elizabeth On Sunday At All Saints Cathedral Nairobi

The late Queen Elizabeth II.

On Sunday , a memorial ceremony will be held in Nairobi's All Saints Cathedral in honor of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

According to a schedule made public by the church and the British High Commission, the service will start at 3 pm in the Main Sanctuary.

Kenyans who attend the service will have the opportunity to leave their condolences for the late king in the guest book.

Senior state officials are likely to attend the event because they are clerics. With 70 years in power, Queen Elizabeth II was the British Empire's longest-reigning monarch.

On September 8, the 96-year-old passed away in her loved ones' presence. She passed away peacefully; according to a statement from Buckingham Palace, at her Balmoral, Scotland, residence.

Kenya has stronger links with the late queen than it did with the commonwealth because she ascended to the throne there during a tour after her father's passing in 1952.

Former President Uhuru Kenyatta announced four days of mourning in honor of the late monarch on September 9.

He announced that from sunset on Friday, September 9, till dusk on Monday, September 12, Kenya would observe a day of national mourning.

The Kenyan flag was flown at half-mast during this time in all Kenyan diplomatic missions, on the grounds of public buildings, at all military bases, posts, and stations, as well as on all Kenyan navy vessels.

In a private ceremony attended only by members of the Royal Family, the Queen will be laid to rest on Monday night in the King George VI memorial chapel at Windsor Castle.
