All holders of the Victoria Cross or George Cross will be able to attend the Queen's funeral, it has been reported.

Reports suggest the Victoria Cross and George Cross Association had invited medal recipients to attend the Queen's funeral as well as her lying in state, "in accordance with the wishes of Her Majesty".

From the Commonwealth realms, a country's prime minister plus a guest, the governor-general plus a guest, and the high commissioner will all also receive an invitation, the Press Association news agency understands.

They are also allowed to bring 10 people from their nation – Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has already said 10 Australians had been invited by Buckingham Palace for their "extraordinary contributions to their communities".
