Since the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, mourners had gathered in front of the royal palace in London, and thousands laid flowers in front of the goal.
The Green Park in the immediate vicinity of the Buckingham Palace is expected to be overcrowded, the park administration said on Twitter and advised mourning to take their flowers in Hyde Park.
The mourning areas in both parks should also be open the day after the state burial planned for this Monday.
With the Queen's death, we've tasted a moment of unity, writes ex-royal courtier PATRICK JEPHSON .
PATRICK JEPHSON: None of us who have lived through the golden twilight of the Queen's reign and witnessed its inevitable, yet still unexpected, final closing will ever be quite the same again. We will have tasted a unique moment of unity and we’ll know at some deep level that our human hunger for fellowship and belonging can be satisfied, however fleetingly.
