“Use it as a moment to mourn and reflect”

Sunday 18 September 2022

Islanders are being encouraged to join the national silences for Her Majesty the Queen tonight and tomorrow.

This evening, a one-minute silence will be taking place at 20:00.

Towards the end of Her Majesty’s funeral service tomorrow, there will be a two-minute silence around 11:55.

The Government said islanders should use it as an opportunity to “mourn and reflect on the life and legacy of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.”
