The guidelines further explain that “any organization or person may open a book of condolences during the National Mourning Period”.

“There is no defined format for the book. The table is usually an easel table on which the book is placed with a white tablecloth, an arrangement of flowers (lilies or other white flowers) and a formal framed photograph of Her Majesty.

“Know that the Royal House and the government will not be able to receive condolence books,” he added.
