The Demise of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II: National Mourning Guidance

Updated: Sep 10

Guidance for the public and businesses on the period of National Mourning following the demise of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Clubs that affiliate to IGA have no formal obligation to cancel gymnastics classes or competitions. However, playing the National Anthem or paying some respect of a minutes silence would be appreciated. At this moment in time, the Nation and Commonwealth are now in mourning.

The Queen's state funeral is expected to take place at Westminster Abbey in less than two weeks. The exact day will be confirmed by Buckingham Palace.

This is a time to reflect on Her Majesty's wonderful years of public service, her grace, her dignity and her love to her people. From our gymnastics community of gymnasts, coaches, parents and families we thank you, Queen Elizabeth II. It is now your time to rest in peace.

The Royal Family
