September 12, 2022 (press release) –

Following the announcement that HM The Queen’s State funeral will be marked as a Bank Holiday, Royal Mail has announced that services will be suspended on Monday 19 September.

The close relationship between the monarch and the British postal service has endured for more than 500 years, ever since King Henry VIII appointed the very first postmaster. Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II continued this close relationship, taking a keen interest in Royal Mail and playing an active role in the selection and approval of stamps.  

Royal Mail CEO, Simon Thompson said: “We are proud that over the coming days Royal Mail will play an important role delivering messages of condolence from all around the world to the Royal family. We want to make our customers aware that services will be suspended on the day of the funeral as people come together to honour Her Majesty, after 70 years of exemplary service to the nation and the Commonwealth.”

Further details will be available on the Royal Mail website once the date of the funeral and other arrangements have been confirmed.
