The book will be located upstairs of the Guildhall art gallery on Sunday, open to the public for signatures from 10:30 a.m., with people encouraged to pay their respects.

This is not the first time the gallery has become an outlet for grief, having opened a book of condolences following the London Bridge terror attacks in 2017.

The Guildhall Art Gallery and the Roman Amphitheater in London are both closed on Friday in honor of the Queen’s passing.

Condolences for the Queen are also available at churches, theaters and local authorities around the country, as well as on the royal website.

The royal family has added a “Book of Condolences” to its official website, allowing people from all over the world to send messages of support.

A book of condolences was opened at Cardiff City Hall on Friday, with people encouraged to leave memorial flowers outside the building.

One of the messages left with the flowers read: “Thank you for a lifetime of dedication. You will always be in our hearts.”

“It is with great sadness that Wales’ capital city will now join the rest of the country in mourning the end of a remarkable life and dynasty.”

Condolence books have also been opened at locations across Northern Ireland and Lord Glasgow Jacqueline McLaren, in his capacity as Lord, was the first to sign the condolence book at the City Chambers in Glasgow.
