Portraits of Queen Elizabeth II were posted on billboard screens in central London's Piccadilly Circus and the city's Canary Wharf financial district, a Reuters report said.

On Friday, Charles III in his first address to Britain following the Queen's demise said, “And to my darling Mama, as you begin your last great journey to join my dear late Papa, I want simply to say this: thank you. Thank you for your love and devotion to our family and to the family of nations you have served so diligently all these years.”

“May 'flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest," he added.

King Charles III will officially succeed as the new monarch this afternoon.
