A number of dignitaries were in attendance, including President Trump and the four living ex-presidents-Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama-German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Prince Charles.

Several politicians and world leaders gathered at National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday to pay their respects to the 41st President of the United States, who died on November 30.

As the 72-year-old Bush arrived at the National Cathedral for the state funeral for his father - the 41st U.S. president - he shook hands with President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania. Upon seeing Michelle, though, he passes her a piece of candy, which makes the Chicago native smile and laugh.

The 43rd USA president had also given Michelle Obama a mint during the memorial service in September for Arizona Senator John McCain.

During the State Funeral, George W. took the podium to give an emotional eulogy.

As the world mourns the death of former President George H.W. Bush, ABC News contributor Cokie Roberts remembered his time as president and what distinguished him from the modern political climate on this week's Powerhouse Politics podcast.

"I think that there's going to be a lot more recognition of how he handled the end of the Cold War which is really the end of a century's long war", she said. "The best father a son or daughter could have", said George W. Bush, holding back tears.
