The Sussex Police Chief said the force would “play its part” in policing the Queen’s funeral.
She described the news as “a significant moment in our nation’s history” and said the loss will be felt around the world.
The Police Chief also spoke about the role of Sussex Police in upcoming events surrounding the Queen’s funeral and King Charles’ proclamation.
She said: “Several important ceremonial events will take place in the coming days, including the proclamation of our new monarch.
“We will support these as needed as we prepare to play our part in the police operation for the Queen’s funeral.”
Buckingham Palace has said it is the King’s wish that a period of royal mourning be observed between now and seven days after the Queen’s funeral.
The statement said the date of the funeral will be confirmed in due course and that there will almost certainly be a public holiday on that day.
It will be a day of national mourning, although employers will not be forced to give workers the day off.
The funeral will be held at Westminster Abbey and a two-minute silence will begin across the country at noon.
There will also be another bank holiday for King Charles’ coronation in the coming months, although details are yet to be confirmed.
