Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral is due to take place on Monday, September 19 as Worcester gathers to pay their respects to the late monarch.

The Queen passed away peacefully, aged 96, Buckingham Palace confirmed in a statement with the state funeral taking place 10 days afterwards.

King Charles III was formally declared King during a historic Accession Ceremony just days after where he decreed that the sad day would be marked with a bank holiday.

Many supermarkets, shops and entertainment venues will close but there are some places that have opted to show a live broadcast of the funeral in Worcester.
