Ahead of a meeting with King Charles III in London, Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reportedly stopped to view Queen Elizabeth’s casket.

Westminster Hall’s live-stream footage briefly showed Trudeau and his wife, Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau, as they stopped by the queen’s flag-draped coffin.

Also included in Canada’s delegation to London are Gov. Gen Mary Simon and her husband, former governors general Michaelle Jean and David Johnston, as well as former prime ministers Kim Campbell, Jean Chretien, Paul Martin, and Stephen Harper.

The funeral would also be attended by Canadian First Nations, Inuit, and Metis leaders as well as recipients of several Order of Canada including former swimmer Mark Tewksbury and actress Sandra Oh.
