Her Majesty, who died ‘peacefully’ yesterday at Balmoral, was honored by schools across the country. Many of them held special assemblies to remember his “incredible life” of service.

The Department for Education said in an email to schools: “We have now entered a period of national mourning which will last until the end of the state funeral.

Officials will provide schools and institutions with further information once the funeral date has been determined.

However, schools and institutions “should remain open” until further information has been validated.

Her Majesty has dedicated the past 70 years to the service of our nation and the Commonwealth, showing an immense sense of responsibility and dedication.

We are thinking a lot about the Royal Family at this time as the nation comes together to honor and commemorate Queen Elizabeth II.

The BBC halted its regular programming and switched to a news special when it learned the Queen was ‘under medical care’. This newsletter was broadcast until this morning.

Along the same lines, other stations aired memorial newscasts and documentaries commemorating his reign.

Tear-filled TV presenters held back their emotions last night as they announced the Queen had died peacefully at Balmoral.

Huw Edwards broke the news in earnest on the BBC, twice repeating Buckingham Palace’s announcement while staring into the camera.

The BBC will stop broadcasting all comedy programs over the next few days as part of its preparations.

Following Buckingham Palace’s announcement, the BBC’s bargain hunt was cut short yesterday to let viewers know doctors were ‘concerned’ about Her Majesty’s health.

The popular lunchtime show, in which two teams are each given £300 to hunt for the best deals to sell at auction, was discontinued shortly before 12.40pm on Thursday.

Despite the British government’s assertion that they were under no obligation to do so, the Premier League and the Football Association have decided to postpone all their matches this weekend due to the death of Queen Elizabeth.

To decide how to proceed for the rest of this weekend’s programme, the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) hosted a conference call with representatives from all major sports at 9.30am. The DCMS left the choice of events to individual organizations.

To honor Queen Elizabeth’s ‘exceptional life and commitment to country’, according to a statement from the Premier League and EFL, this weekend’s matches will be postponed.

The Premier League issued the following statement: “Premier League teams paid tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at a meeting this morning. [Friday].

“This weekend’s Premier League round, including Monday night’s game, will be postponed in honor of his exceptional life and commitment to the country, and as a sign of respect.”

“We and our clubs would like to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s long and unwavering devotion to our nation,” Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said.

She was an inspiration as our oldest queen and leaves behind a remarkable legacy after a life of commitment.

“This is a very sad time not only for the country, but also for the millions of people who adored him, and we stand with them in mourning his loss,” the statement read.

Viewers were watching the Bargain Hunt presenters twenty minutes before the scheduled start of the 1 a.m. newscast when it abruptly went black. Then Joanna Gosling, a BBC News presenter, appeared to break the news.

“Welcome viewers to BBC One,” she remarked. According to information we have received from Buckingham Palace, the Queen is receiving medical treatment at Balmoral.

Unlike television, theaters nationwide will continue to play while observing one minute of quiet, dimmer lighting.

As a sign of respect for Her Majesty, they will also play the national anthem and open condolence books before performances.

The Society of London Theater (SOLT) and the UK Theater expressed their ‘great sadness’ at the Queen’s passing in a joint statement.

The telegram read: ‘We are deeply saddened to hear the news of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’, and was sent by Stephanie Sirr, Jon Gilchrist and Eleanor Lloyd, the chairmen of SOLT and UK Theatre.

The theater community is grateful for all of Her Majesty’s support and patronage over the years. At this time of national sadness, we wish to offer the Royal Family our heartfelt condolences.

Additionally, they said that, in accordance with DCMS guidelines, tonight’s theatrical performances and others scheduled will go ahead as planned.

The BBC also said that out of respect for the Queen, the other two Proms nights had been cancelled.

Ball 71 on Friday September 9 and the last night of the balls on Saturday September 10 will not take place out of respect for Her Majesty The Queen, the organization tweeted.

Although London’s Eventim Apollo attendees are already seated, Mercury Prize Honors also announced that the ceremony has been postponed.

The words “In light of the tragic news of Her Majesty The Queen’s passing, we are sorry to inform you that we will not be proceeding with tonight’s event as planned” appeared on screen.

Sporting events were also hampered.

All sporting events would be canceled on the National Day of Mourning as part of Operation London Bridge.

The Premier League, however, also said today that all weekend games have been postponed.

This weekend’s Premier League round will be postponed out of respect for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, they said via Twitter.

However, such actions were expected as the Liverpool v Newcastle United game which was due to take place later today was canceled following the death of Princess Diana.

All football league matches scheduled for the day of Diana’s funeral have been postponed to the previous Friday or the following Sunday. As no Premier League matches were scheduled due to international commitments, there was no need to cancel them.
