Oh received the honor in June for his “artistic career filled with memorable roles on stage, television and film in Canada and abroad.”

The country’s delegation to the funeral was led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, and also included Governor General Mary Simon as well as former prime ministers and governors general.

Oh, who was born in Canada to Korean parents, received Emmy nominations for her role as Dr. Cristina Yang in Shonda Rhimes’ long-running medical series Grey’s Anatomy.

Part of the original cast when it first aired in 2005, she left in 2014.

She was also nominated for her turn as MI5 analyst Eve Polastri in the BBC spy thriller Killing Eve.

Canada, where the King is now head of state, is also marking the Queen’s funeral with a national day of mourning and a national memorial ceremony held at Christ Church Cathedral, Ottawa’s Anglican cathedral.

Adventurer and head scout Bear Grylls and actress Sophie Winkleman, best known for her appearance on the television series Peep Show, who is married to Lord Freddie Windsor, also took part in the ceremony.
