Television newsreaders will wear black as a mark of respect. and MPs will wear black armbands in parliament.
For around eight days, the Queen is not expected to perform any of her constitutional duties, meaning no new laws will be passed, for example.
The Queen’s husband, Prince Phillip, would be “lying in state” at Westminster Abbey, before being buried in St George’s Chapel.
However, the Duke has previously said he didn’t “want the fuss”. It’s therefore been suggested he might be buried in the grounds of Windsor Castle.
