The state funeral for Queen Elizabeth II will be held Monday, Sept. 19, at Westminster Abbey. The queen, who died Sept. 8, was Britain’s longest serving monarch. During her reign, she saw 15 prime ministers and met with 13 U.S. presidents.

On Cincinnati Edition, we look at the queen’s role in British society and America’s infatuation with the monarchy.
