In a new tweet, international fast food chain McDonald's announced that all of its locations in the UK will be closed until 5pm on Monday, the day of Queen Elizabeth's funeral.

The tweet addressed to the general public reads:

"In honour of HM Queen Elizabeth II, and to enable everyone at McDonald’s to pay their respects, our restaurants across the UK will be closed from midnight until 5pm on Monday 19th September."

The humble decision will give around 120,000 people employed by the brand in the UK the opportunity to mark the momentous occasion with others. as a result of the decision.

In the wake of the Queen's demise, King Charles issued a directive that Monday will be a public bank holiday in order to allow the people to mourn his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

As a result of this, many well-known retailers have chosen to close, including Waitrose, Marks and Spencer, Lidl, Aldi, Iceland, and Morrisons. However, a few others like McDonald's will partially open later during the day.

Sainsbury's has announced that it will close its main stores but convenience and petrol stations will remain open from 5pm to 10pm. While some of the larger Tesco stores will be totally closed, some of the smaller Express outlets will be opening from 5pm.

The Queen's funeral is expected to attract thousands to central London. The service, presumed to attract millions of viewers all around the world, will be held at Westminster Abbey, starting at 11am.

May Her soul rest in peace.
