The flag is at half mast today to mark the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The flag has been flying at half mast today to mark the death of Queen Elizabeth II. The news was announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in a statement outside 10 Downing Street on October 28th, following the monarch’s passing away at the age of 101. The Queen had been ill for some time and was already receiving end-of-life care, so her death was not unexpected. In fact, Buckingham Palace had already issued a statement that she would be spending more time with her family in Windsor Castle.

The official proclamation announcing the news was made on Monday morning by King Charles III, who succeeded his mother as monarch on her death. There are strict rules about how flags should be flown when a member of the royal family dies. The flag is flown at half mast from 8am until sunset on the day of their funeral and remains there until they are buried or cremated.
