The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon

Black cab drivers in London have lined the Mall in tribute to the Queen, who passed away this afternoon.

Britain’s longest-serving monarch died peacefully at Balmoral, with all her children by her side.

A statement sent out at 18.30 read that the King and The Queen Consort will remain in Scotland this evening and will return to London tomorrow.

King Charles III sent out his own personal tribute shortly after.

In tribute to Queen Elizabeth II, black cab drivers lined the Mall in silence.

Only their amber lights shone at the front in what many people have described as a moving tribute.
