The hosts will replace regular Weekend Today presenters Richard Wilkins, Belinda Russell and Charles Croucher, who is on the ground in London.

Buckingham Palace announced the death of Britain’s longest-serving monarch at 6:30 p.m. local time on Thursday evening. The queen was 96 years old.

Nine will provide continuous coverage of the Queen’s death for the remainder of Friday, overnight and into the early hours of Saturday, TV Tonight reports.

Stefanovic and Langdon will begin their special weekend edition today at 5:30 a.m. and continue until noon.

They will be joined by royal commentators Camilla Tominey and Dickie Arbiter.

The other networks, including Channel Seven, have also introduced continuous coverage.

Queen Elizabeth II’s death will be particularly difficult for her grandson Prince Harry, whose relationship with the royal family had been strained in recent years, Stefanovic said on Friday.

As the show aired photos of the children and the Queen’s grandson Prince William heading to Balmoral to say goodbye, co-host Allison Langdon said the Duke of Sussex “wasn’t there for the passing of his beloved grandmother”.

Harry arrived at Balmoral almost an hour and a half after news of his grandmother the Queen’s death was announced.

Stefanovic and Langdon anchored seven and a half hours of live coverage on the Today show on Friday, which began with the news breaking at 4:30 a.m.
