The ceremony will take place on Wednesday, 24 April at St Anne's Cathedral in Belfast.

In a message posted by her partner Sara Canning, she explained that she wanted McKee's funeral to be a celebration of her life.

Canning wrote: "Lyra's funeral will take place on Wednesday at 1pm at St Anne’s Cathedral Belfast. It’s going to be a celebration of her life and if people would like to wear Hufflepuff, Harry Potter, or Marvel related items I know she would love it."
