HM Queen Elizabeth II - National Silence and Bank Holiday Arrangements

National Silence
A one-minute silence is being held at 2000 on Sunday 18 September 2022, the day before the Queen's Funeral. The Prime Minister's office said "The silence can be marked privately at home on your own or with friends and neighbours, out on your doorstep or street with neighbours, or at any locally arranged community events and vigils. We encourage local community groups, clubs, and other organisations to mark this moment of reflection. The shared national moment of reflection is an opportunity for everyone across the UK to mark the death of Her Majesty and we will set out details of where the prime minister will mark it closer to that time."


Bank Holiday Arrangements
Monday 19 September 2022, the day of the Queen's Funeral, has been designated as a bank holiday. Government guidance (https://bit.ly/3Dib5GZ) confirms that from an employment point of view, it is treated like any other bank holiday.
