Following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday at the age of 96, THE BBC has changed the programme for today. There is a list of the television schedule on bbcnewz.online.
In order to concentrate on the life of Britain’s longest-serving monarch, the BBC will be focused on special coverage throughout the day on September 9. Some regular programs will be canceled. While some programs have been totally updated with new material and eliminated entirely. The Queen’s death will also be the subject of a lot of rolling news and commentary.
The Queen passed away peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon, the Royal Family Twitter account wrote in a post to its 5.3 million followers yesterday.
The King and the Queen Consort will spend this evening and tomorrow at Balmoral before flying back to London.
Her eldest son Charles, who will be known as King Charles III, has now directly taken to the throne following her passing.
Many others have expressed their admiration for the Queen, including US President Joe Biden and his wife Dr. Jill Biden. In a protracted statement, they said: “Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was more than a monarch; She defined an age.
She was a calming presence and a source of solace and pride for generations of Britons, including many who had never known their nation without her, in a world of continual change.
“Her legacy will loom large in the pages of British history, and in the story of our globe,” the statement said.
The passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, is a profoundly sad event for the UK, the Commonwealth, and the world, according to First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon.
Her life was marked by exceptional commitment and service. I offer The King and the Royal Family my sincere sympathies on behalf of the people of Scotland.
The Irish Government joins with you in mourning the passing of an amazing woman who led by quiet and dignified example and who impacted so many lives over her extremely long reign, according to a statement from Taoiseach Micheál Martin.
“Our world is a considerably richer and better place as a result of her long life and enduring contribution, but a poorer place for her loss.”
The BBC is still receiving reports about the Queen’s death from journalists all across the world, including those in Kenya and India.
Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, told the BBC that “a component of our existence that was taken for granted is no longer there” for many people all over the world, particularly in the United Kingdom.
In that sense, there has been a significant change in the way we perceive the world, ourselves, and ourselves.
He continued by stating that individuals were probably going through grief and “wondering about what is permanent.” Adding to this, it is said that “even in difficult circumstances, she never lost hope.”
Even if the conversation lasted six hours, the Archbishop claimed he wouldn’t be able to “exhaust the essence of her devotion.” He praised the Queen for her dedication.

Similar scheduling changes were made at the BBC yesterday (September 8), which replaced programming with news coverage due to the Queen’s declining health.
Tim Davie, the chairman and director general of the BBC, issued a joint statement in which he expressed his sympathies to the Royal Family on behalf of the organization.
“Her Majesty was the epitome of a public servant. She served as a symbol of our country’s greatest qualities and served as a unifying force across generations, communities, and borders.
“At the BBC, we are grateful to have seen, captured, and shared so many of the memorable moments over her lengthy life and reign.
She will forever be remembered with the utmost love and respect.
