Monday 19 September, the date of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral, will be a national bank holiday in the United Kingdom. Here at Clevertouch we will be ceasing business for the day as a mark of respect to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The Queen, Britain's longest ever reigning monarch, died peacefully on Thursday afternoon at her Scottish estate in Balmoral. The state funeral will take place at Westminster Abbey, the historic church where Britain's kings and queens are crowned, and where Queen Elizabeth II married Prince Philip in 1947.
Heads of state from across the world will be invited to join members of the Royal Family to remember the life and service of the Queen.
It is expected that certain aspects of daily life will be put on hold for the date of the state funeral, with some businesses and organisations choosing to close or halt their operations.
