Mourners around the world paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth II by laying flowers and leaving messages at embassies and cathedrals as world leaders continue to send in their condolences.
King Charles III, who became the new monarch immediately after his mother’s death, will return to London, address the nation, and meet British Prime Minister Liz Truss.
London is preparing for the arrival of huge crowds to mourn the queen. There will be a service at St Paul’s Cathedral attended by Truss and senior ministers.
Bells will toll at Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral and Windsor Castle, and gun salutes – one round for every year of the Queen’s life – will be fired at Hyde Park.
