Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral will take place on Monday, September 19 and while it is broadcast on TV channels, Channel 4 has said a 1953 documentary of Her Majesty’s coronation will be available to watch.

A Queen Is Crowned is narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier and it was nominated for an Oscar.

The two-minute silence will be observed by Channel 4 on Monday as a mark of respect to the Queen.

A Channel 4 spokesperson told the PA news agency: “On the day Britain says farewell to its longest-serving monarch, Channel 4 will be airing A Queen Is Crowned, the classic 1953 documentary about her coronation, so that viewers can experience both the beginning and end of her remarkable reign.

“Following the service, Channel 4 will also broadcast two extended editions of Channel 4 News as well as the 1943 Vera Lynn film, We’ll Meet Again.”

Channel 4 News will show two 90-minute broadcasts with a special beginning at 1.25pm and the second programme is set to start at 7pm.

What to expect from the Queen's funeral

Viewers can expect regular programming to resume from 8.30pm onwards and Jamie’s One Pan Wonders, First Dates and Walter Presents: Sisterhood are just some of the shows that will air.

In the morning, Britain’s Most Beautiful Landscapes and Secrets Of The Royal Gardens will be available to watch.

Friday night (September 16) saw Gogglebox air, an episode that reflected on the week’s events.

It was confirmed last Friday that Channel 4 would go ahead with launching the new series of the hit show after the Queen’s death because the broadcaster felt it would bring a “valuable sense of continuity” for viewers.

In a statement, the broadcaster said it had made “significant changes” to its schedule following the Queen’s death but that its purpose was to offer an “alternative” for viewers which it feels is “particularly important at times like this”.

Broadcasters including the BBC and ITV have announced their coverage plans for the Queen’s funeral.

The BBC’s TV coverage will run from 8am to 5pm on BBC One and iPlayer with Huw Edwards, Kirsty Young and David Dimbleby among the presenters involved.

BSL signed coverage will be broadcast on BBC Two.

Leading ITV’s coverage of the historic events will be Tom Bradby and Julie Etchingham.

Viewers will see coverage of the funeral service at Westminster Abbey, the procession escorting the late monarch through London to Wellington Arch and then on to Windsor Castle, and the committal service at St George’s Chapel.

It’s likely that the funeral of the late monarch will attract one of the largest UK television audiences of recent decades.
