In the latest round of broadcast schedule changes across the UK after the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, it has been announced that Casualty has moved from its original home at BBC One to BBC Two.

The show will now air at 8.10pm on Saturday (September 10) on BBC Two.

All through Saturday, BBC One will be completely devoted to broadcasting news coverage and programming related to remembering the Queen, who passed away peacefully at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on Thursday (September 8).

There will also be a special edition of The One Show at 6.45pm on that day.

Saturday Kitchen is also being shuffled from BBC One to BBC Two in the morning so that the official proclamation for King Charles III can broadcast in its place.

This schedule is also subject to changes due to disruptions in programming, but for the most part it should stay this way.

The UK lost its longest reigning monarch on Thursday afternoon, after news had broken out that the Queen was being kept under medical supervision at Balmoral Castle that morning.

All senior members of the royal family as well as other royal members made their way to Scotland to be with the Queen during her final moments.

After the announcement, King Charles III paid a moving tribute to his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II. He has now become King after his mother's death.

The King said in a statement: "The death of my beloved Mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family. We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished sovereign and a much-loved mother."

The Queen is survived by four children – King Charles III, Anne, Princess Royal, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, and Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex – as well as eight grandchildren, including Princes William and Harry, and 12 great-grandchildren.

Casualty airs on Saturdays on BBC One and streams on BBC iPlayer.
