Following the Queen's death, mourners across the world are paying their respects to Her Majesty, who passed away on Thursday 8th September, age 96.
In the lead up to the news of her passing, crowds began to gather outside Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and Balmoral, where the Queen spent much of her 70-year reign.
On Friday morning, a sea of flowers bloomed outside the gates of the official royal residences, as mourners, old and young, placed bunches of flora on the ground, along with messages of condolences, pictures of Her Majesty and candles.
For those unable to make it to the UK, Buckingham Palace has published a section on its website, inviting mourners to pay their respects to the Royal Family and send messages of condolences via an online form.
On the Royal.uk homepage, visitors are instructed to fill out the form, including their name, email address, location and message.
"A selection of messages will be passed onto members of the Royal Family, and may be held in the Royal Archives for posterity," a statement reads.
Following the Queen's death, world leaders including US President Joe Biden, Canadian President Justin Trudeau and British Prime Minister Liz Truss paid their respects to the Queen and shared their favourite memories of Her Majesty.
"In a world of constant change, she was a steadying presence and a source of comfort and pride for generations of Britons, including many who have never known their country without her," Biden said in his statement.
"An enduring admiration for Queen Elizabeth II united people across the Commonwealth. The seven decades of her history-making reign bore witness to an age of unprecedented human advancement and the forward march of human dignity."
