“Operation Unicorn,” the plan launched after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. What will happen in the coming days

-

With the death of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, “Operation Unicorn” began in the territory of Scotland. It is a plan of action created for this situation, in which the body of the sovereign is to be brought to London.

Initially, the work of the Scottish Parliament is suspended and the authorities prepare for the hundreds of thousands of people expected at Balmoral Castle.

From there, Queen Elizabeth’s body II will be taken by train to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, her official residence in Scotland. She will then be buried in St. Giles Cathedral, where politicians and people will pay their last respects.

In the final leg of “Operation Unicorn,” the coffin will be loaded onto the Royal Train, which will take it up the east coast to London. There will be a guard of honour at each station along the route, so that Elizabeth II will finally arrive for the last time in the throne room of Buckingham Palace.

The sovereign’s funeral will take place in Westminster Abbey in 10 or 11 days, though the date has yet to be confirmed by Buckingham Palace. According to the BBC, a public holiday is likely to be declared, with schools closed.

A memorial service will be held today at St. Paul’s Cathedral, attended by the prime minister and several ministers. Also, 96 cannon salutes will be fired in Hyde Park to celebrate each year in the life of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II. Most of the sporting events scheduled for today have been cancelled, including football matches in the English Football League and the Northern Ireland Football League.

All horse racing has been postponed by the British Horseracing Authority. The sixth stage of the Tour of Britain has also been postponed. British theatrical performances are expected to go ahead as planned, with a minute’s silence at the start. The Railway, Maritime and Transport Union has announced that strikes planned for Sept. 15 and 17 will be cancelled as a mark of respect.

The Transport Salaried Staff Association also cancelled strikes scheduled for September. And the Postal Workers Union cancelled the strike scheduled for today.
