'Huge honour': Chris Waller speaks on invite to Queen's funeral

Australian horse trainer Chris Waller, one of the ten everyday Australians invited to attend the Queen’s funeral, says it’s “a huge honour”.

“I’ve been inundated with messages and well-wishes and … it’s just very humbling experience that’s about to take place, and all for an amazing lady," Mr Waller told Sky News Australia.

“I had the pleasure to meet her a few times, and chatting to her on the phone if I was called to ring.

“She can relate to very single person in the world, let alone the Commonwealth."
