Even two days after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the stream of mourners at London's Buckingham Palace has not stopped. Thousands of people gathered early on Saturday morning to lay flowers or cards, light a candle or pause.
Despite the crowds, the atmosphere was calm and respectful, British news agency PA reported. A number of mourners also traveled from further away.
To ensure that the property in London's government district of Westminster does not sink under the sea of flowers, all the bouquets are allowed to lie in front of them for twelve hours before they are taken to the adjacent Green Park. This is also indicated by a sign on the fence of the palace.
