Royal mourning to last until seven days after queen's funeral

Britain's Royal Family will observe a period of mourning that ends on the seventh day after the funeral of Queen Elizabeth, with flags at royal residences to remain at half mast.

A royal gun salute will be fired in London at 1300 BST (1200 GMT) in Hyde Park, with one round fired for each year of the 96-year-old queen's life, Buckingham Palace said on Friday.

The palace did not say when the funeral would be held, but it is likely to take place around 11 days after her death on Thursday.

The Indian government on Friday announced one day of state mourning on Sept. 11 as a mark of respect on the passing away of Queen Elizabeth.
