President George Herbert Walker Bush will be honored at the Washington National Cathedral Wednesday morning, Dec. 5.

Former President George W. Bush will deliver a eulogy for his father, according to multiple outlets.

CNN reports George H.W. Bush will also be eulogized by former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, presidential historian Jon Meacham, and U.S. Sen. Alan Simpson.

President Donald Trump, who is expected to attend, will not speak at the funeral, sources tell CNN. Other attendees include former presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and Jimmy Carter.

Around 1:15 p.m., Bush's body will be flown to St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Houston. He will later be buried in his family plot behind the Bush Library at Texas A&M alongside his wife, Barbara Bush, who died earlier this year. The plot is also home to their daughter, Robin, who died in 1953 at the age of 3.
