Her Majesty the Queen

Following the announcement from the Palace, Heart of London Business Alliance is deeply saddened at the news of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s passing and offer our condolences to the Royal Family.  

Heart of London will be following official guidance for the Period of National Mourning and will be updating businesses accordingly.   

It is at the discretion of individual businesses on how they mark this moment. Union flags flying from Royal Residences and Government Buildings will be half-masted and will remain half-masted until 08.00, on the day after the funeral. Any non-official flags currently flying or due to be flown should be taken down and replaced with a Union Flag at half-mast. Other official flags scheduled to be flown should be flown as normal, but at half-mast. 

Businesses or other organisations wishing to pay their respects by half-masting flags or holding silences, should follow the guidance that has been issued by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. Businesses can view the guidance issued during the period of mourning here. 

All public services will continue as usual throughout the mourning period. This will include services provided by Heart of London. We will update our news pages with advice and information for our businesses and destination.  

We will keep in touch with news as it comes in.  

Best wishes,  

Ros Morgan
