A NATIONAL one minute’s silence will be held on Sunday (September 18) to ‘mourn and reflect on the life and legacy of Queen Elizabeth II’, Downing Street has announced.
The one-minute silence will take place at 8pm – the night before the Queen’s funeral on Monday (September 19), which has been declared a bank holiday.
The prime minister’s official spokesman said: “The silence can be marked privately at home on your own or with friends and neighbours, out on your doorstep or street with neighbours, or at any locally arranged community events and vigils.
“We encourage local community groups, clubs and other organisations to mark this moment of reflection. And if you are overseas, people are encouraged to mark the silence at their local time.”
