The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow".  The announcement was made at Balmoral Castle, where the Queen's four children were present.

It describes everything, from how the news of the monarch's passing would be published to the public to how quickly Prince Charles would ascend the throne.

As a symbol of respect, the BBC will refrain from streaming comedic programmes. According to the WhitChurch Herald, the Accession Council would convene in St. James's Palace to declare Charles III as king.


 


On the fifth day, her coffin will be carried from Buckingham Palace to the Palace of Westminster in a ceremony. The casket will remain in Westminster Hall for three days, with public access for 23 hours. During this time, an extensive number of funeral preparations, including a formal rehearsal and the entrance of world leaders, will take place. 


 


The funeral will take place at Westminster Abbey on the tenth day, marking the first funeral of a British monarch since 1760.
