Stop leaving marmalade and paddington bears for the Queen: civil servants

In London, the place for floral tributes is in Green Park next to Buckingham Palace, where officials who manage the so-called Royal Parks have issued guidance about what to do.

For example, officials have asked the public to remove plastic wrapping from flowers before leaving them. This will make it easier for the flowers to eventually be turned into compost at least a week after the burial takes place.

They have also said: “We would prefer that visitors do not bring non-floral objects/artifacts such as teddy bears or balloons.”

The advice was also shared with the BBC, as presenter Sally Nugent told viewers, “They suggest there are enough Paddingtons and jam sandwiches in the parks at the moment, so feel free to bring flowers, but maybe don’t bring any more Paddingtons or jam sandwiches for now .”
