The funeral for the 41st president will take place at the Washington National Cathedral, and is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
Former President George W. Bush will deliver a eulogy for his father, as will former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and former Wyoming Sen. Alan Simpson. Historian Jon Meacham, who wrote a biography of Bush, will also speak.
Among those who will be in attendance at the invitation-only funeral will be President Trump and first lady Melania Trump, former presidents Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama, and Bill Clinton, and several current and former world leaders and dignitaries, including Britain’s Prince Charles.
The federal government is closed Wednesday, as are U.S. stock markets. Regular mail deliveries have been suspended, the U.S. Supreme Court has postponed arguments, and Congress has postponed votes.
