The UK is currently in a national mourning period, following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the afternoon of Thursday 8 September 2022, aged 96.
Supermarkets and leading brands across grocery retail have paid tribute to the UK’s longest-reigning monarch, who served the nation for more than 70 years – an achievement celebrated earlier this year by the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
After much speculation, King Charles III confirmed that Monday 19 September 2022 – the day of the Queen’s funeral – will be a national bank holiday, applying to schools, businesses and services across all parts of the UK.
