Thousands of people have been leaving flowers and other tributes to Queen Elizabeth II at the gates of Buckingham Palace. From young children holding hand-drawn cards to Chelsea Pensioners on mobility scooters, many left their own personal notes.
Paddington Bear made several appearances, a reference to the Queen's memorable turn on TV with the bear from Peru for her Jubilee celebrations.
Some of the notes were deeply personal: "You were my grandmother's idol and we are here today because you're so much to all of us. Thank you for every memory."
Cards were addressed to "Ma'am", "Queen of our hearts", "our lioness" and "our rock"... and "Queen Kong".
One picture spelled out the words that for them embodied the Queen in an acrostic: "Quintessential, Unwavering, Eloquent, Elegant, Noble."
