Guidance for leaving floral tributes

The Royal Family have issued guidance for those wishing to pay tribute by leaving floral tributes at Royal Residences.

If you are visiting Windsor to leave a floral tribute to Her Majesty The Queen, please ensure that you remove any plastic packaging from the flowers and leave them outside Cambridge Gate at the top of the Long Walk, as directed by stewards.

Flowers from this area will be moved inside Windsor Castle on a regular basis.

Leave your tributes in the Online Book of Condolence

The Royal Family have created an online Book of Condolence as there are no physical condolence books at Royal Residences.

Please visit the Royal Family website to leave a message.
