Global News published this video item, entitled “Queen’s funeral: Trudeau arrives in London with Canadian delegation” – below is their description.
There was a sense of history on the flight from Canada to London, U.K., on Friday as a unique group of Canadians made their way to the city ahead of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau spent time speaking with members of the delegation aboard. That included former prime minister Paul Martin, who would have flown on the very same aircraft when he was prime minister nearly 20 years ago.
Actress Sandra Oh, Olympian Mark Tewksbury, former governor general David Johnston and several Indigenous leaders including Assembly of First Nations (AFN) Chief RoseAnne Archibald were also on board. A number of others will join the delegation in London, including former prime ministers Stephen Harper, Jean Chrétien and Kim Campbell.
It was the queen’s wish to have a wide representation of Canadians present, as with the other Commonwealth nations and their delegations.
Trudeau will have his first audience with King Charles III on Saturday, with bilateral meetings planned Sunday with the new U.K. Prime Minister Liz Truss and leaders as well. Abigail Bimman has more.
