LONDON Sept 10: Following the passing of Her Majesty The Queen on 8th September 2022, the Royal Household has published guidance for the period of National Mourning, which will continue until the end of the day of the State Funeral.
The day of the Queen’s state funeral is to be a bank holiday, it has been announced. However, no date has yet been announced for the funeral, but it is likely to take place on Monday 19 September.
The Royal Household has advised that there is no obligation to cancel or postpone events during the period of National Mourning, and this extends to all planned cycle-sport events, club and community activity. Therefore the decision to proceed with events or activities is at the discretion of individual organisers, volunteers, local authorities and landowners.
As a mark of respect, and in keeping with the tone of National Mourning, organisers may wish to hold a period of silence and/or play the National Anthem at the start of events, and those present may wish to wear black armbands.
All event organisers and volunteers are asked to check with facility operators, local authorities and landowners – where relevant – on any changes to their own operations during the period of National Mourning.
