The Queen, Britain's longest-reigning monarch, died at her home in Scotland aged 96 on Thursday, September 8.

The British government officially declared the start of a period of national mourning for Queen Elizabeth on Friday, publishing 'national mourning guidance'. The

mourning will continue until the end of the state funeral.

The government said there was no obligation to cancel or postpone events and sporting fixtures, or close entertainment venues during this time, adding that it was at the discretion of individual organisations.
