“At approximately 7.40pm, as police vehicles were entering Parliament Square, a pedestrian attempted to cross the road. An officer on foot quickly intervened, bringing the man to the ground in order to stop him from continuing. The man was subsequently spoken to by officers before being let on his way," A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police told Independent.

Charles, Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and Prince Edward took part in the 10-minute vigil. The tradition was first established when King Edward VIII died in 1936.
