Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral on September 19, 2022 reportedly drew in billions of viewers and could very well become the most-watched event in history with an estimated 4+ billion viewers tuning in from around the world, reported Express UK.
The state funeral of the Queen marked the first such event in Britain since the state funeral of Winston Churchill in 1965. It was also the first to be held in Westminster Abbey for a monarch since 1760.
The landmark funeral had about 500 world leaders and royals in attendance, with hundreds of thousands descending onto London and Windsor.
As per TV analyst Carolina Beltramo, Queen Elizabeth’s funeral is expected to shatter previous viewership records held by Princess Diana’s funeral (2.1 billion) and the Atlanta Olympics opening ceremony (3.6 billion).
Beltramo claimed that the service was reportedly watched around the world by some 4.1 billion people
