The Queen died at Balmoral Castle and was moved on Sunday to Holyrood House in Edinburgh, Scotland’s official royal residence. The Queen has been in office since Monday at St Giles’ Cathedral in the Scottish capital.
On Wednesday, the coffin will go to Westminster Hall, where it will remain until the morning of the state funeral on Monday 19 September. There, the audience also has four days to bid farewell to the Queen.
British florists expect to do good business in the lead up to Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral. In recent days, florists have noticed that they are selling more flowers than usual, according to the British Florists Association.
On Sunday, the day before the funeral, florists anticipate peak demand. It is possible that more flowers were bought in memory of the Queen than were bought in 1997, when the untimely death of Princess Diana caused a flower race. Then about 60 million bouquets were left in Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace.
The authorities asked people not to leave flowers in the palace, but in a garden designated for this in the garden. They also ask you not to leave anything other than flowers or sandwiches with marmalade.
The Queen brought out the last of her handbag in a skit with Paddington Bear for its 70th anniversary earlier this year.
Half of Britons shed tears over the death of Queen Elizabeth II, polling agency YouGov said based on a poll published on Monday. This is 44 per cent of Britons.
Women cried relatively more than men: 55 percent of women compared to 32 percent of men. A quarter of young people aged 18-24 said they had cried over the Queen’s death, compared to 55 percent of those aged over 65. The Conservatives cried more than the Labor or the Liberal Democrats.
