In a discreet operation codenamed London Bridge, senior palace officials will be taking advantage of the presence of scores of dignitaries and Commonwealth leaders to go through rehearsals necessary for the monarch's funeral, Britain's Sunday Express newspaper reports.The April 29 wedding procession will use the same route as the sovereign's cortege when a gun carriage will carry her coffin from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Hall before a service at the nearby Abbey."The Queen, who is very pragmatic about this sort of thing, knows about the dry run. The arrangements are reviewed annually and any significant changes have to be approved by her. There's no sentimentality involved on her part; she actually takes rather a keen interest in the details."

I know that i wouldnt appreciate details of a funeral also being somewhat prearranged at my wedding, Kinda morbid if you ask me. But then again im not royal and i wouldnt have a whole counrty pretty much involved in either event of mine, but i still think it could have been handled a little differently.
No this is indeed a cult ritual .
