Seoul: South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol plans to attend the funeral of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II set to be held in London next week, the Presidential office said on Sunday.

Queen Elizabeth II died on Thursday at the age of 96 after ruling for 70 years.

The state funeral for her will take place on September 19 at Westminster Abbey in London, and Yoon will attend the funeral, according to a statement by Kim Eun-hye, senior Presidential Secretary for Public Affairs.
