Below, crowds gather along the road leading to the Palace gates — where a statement announcing her death was just posted, per tradition.

Quiet singing of “God Save the Queen” has broken out across the gathered crowd.

Many of the well-wishers, some carrying flowers, hailed from outside the UK.

“As a French person, even I am touched by this,” said student Chloe Papeil.

“She is a part of English culture, but also global culture.”

The queen — an instantly recognisable figure to billions of people across the world — is in her Platinum Jubilee year, marking 70 years since she succeeded her father king George VI in 1952.

Israeli doctor Ortal Neeman called her “a very special queen”.

“Everybody around the world knows her. I wish for her health, and hopefully, she’ll always be there.”
