Buckingham Palace confirmed the news earlier today, in a statement saying:
“ The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.
The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.“
A book of condolence will be available for signing in the Church from 9:30am tomorrow.
The Church bell will be tolled 96 times, one of each year of the Queen’s life, at 10am tomorrow (Friday 9th September).
The Vicar will hold a short prayer vigil after the tolling of the bell at 10am.
Flowers may be left (unwrapped) on the grass to the left and right of the main doors into the Church. (Please note flowers will be removed the day after the state funeral and composted).
This week’s Sunday Service (10:30am) will be dedicated to the memory of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
