·1-min read

Two Buckingham Palace aides appeared to be nervous as they fixed an easel display, announcing the death of Queen Elizabeth II, to the gates of the palace.

The pair carried out the traditional task in front of the large crowd that had gathered around the palace, with millions more watching on TV around the world.

An official easel was also placed outside Holyroodhouse in Edinburg, the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland.

Britain will observe an official royal mourning period until one week after Elizabeth II’s funeral.
