The first anniversary of the death of HM Queen Elizabeth II

There will be no official public event to mark the first anniversary of the death of Queen Elizabeth II, a royal spokesman has said.

King Charles is to spend 8 September “quietly and privately”. The day also marks his own accession to the throne.

Nor are there any plans for a private gathering of the Royal Family on the anniversary of the late Queen’s death.

The King is following his mother’s tradition – the late monarch spent the anniversaries of her father’s death, and the start of her reign, in what used to be termed “private reflection” – with no planned official events.

The Cabinet Office has said a national memorial to the late Queen will be commissioned “in due course”.
