 Actor Sandra Oh was among those attending the Queen’s funeral, to the surprise of viewers.

Sandra Oh attended the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on Monday (18 September) as part of the official Canadian delegation.

The actor, best known for her roles in Killing Eve and Grey’s Anatomy, was chosen to attend having become an Officer of the Order of Canada this year. This is the Canadian equivalent to the British OBE.

She attended alongside musician Gregory Charles and Olympic gold medallist swimmer Mark Tewksbury, who are an Officer and a Companion of the Order of Canada, respectively.

Viewers watching the service at home were surprised to see Sandra Oh arrive, as those present were largely world leaders and royalty.

Canada’s delegation at the late monarch’s funeral was led by prime minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau. It also included former Canadian prime ministers and governor generals, as well as the current governor general, Mary Simon.

The royal family followed the Queen’s coffin into Westminster Abbey, led by King Charles and the Queen Consort. Behind them were the Prince and Princess of Wales, William and Kate, their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan.

Liz Truss delivered a reading, and was joined by the UK’s living prime ministers: John Major, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, David Cameron, Theresa May and Boris Johnson.
