Surprising Rules The First Family Must Follow In The White House
2. A Presidential Funeral
One of the first things a president must do when taking office is plan for their funeral. “It may sound shocking, but during the first week of moving into the White House, the president is asked to plan his or her funeral should anything occur during their presidency,” George W. Bush’s deputy assistant said.
A presidential funeral is a huge ordeal full of choreographed ceremonies and generally lasts for around five days. A total of eight US presidents have died while in office. Four of them were assassinated. Being the leader of the free world is no easy task and makes you a target for many.
