Her Majesty's state funeral has been declared a bank holiday and several major retailers have also decided to shut up shop next week, out of respect.

Retailers such as Primark, Poundland and Next will close.

Sainsbury’s, Aldi, Waitrose, Lildl, Asda and Tesco are to close the doors of their larger stores on the day Queen Elizabeth II will be laid to rest.

Large supermarkets will shut.

However, smaller convenience stores will remain open, in part to ensure that the thousands of people expected to gather to watch the funeral will be able to buy water and food for the day.

McDonald's also confirmed it would be closing branches until 5pm on Monday.

Opening times after this time will vary – so it's best to check in to see when your local branch is reopening before making a trip.
