Public holiday arrangements for the funeral of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Monday 19 September 2022

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral will take place on 19 September 2022. This day has been declared as a public holiday across the UK. This is to allow as many people as possible to pay their respects to the Late Queen and commemorate Her reign. It also marks the final day of the period of national mourning.
