Tribute to the Queen draws crowds to Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles

Hundreds of people have flocked to the famous Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles to pay their respects to the Queen.

A simple wreath of flowers was placed around a photograph of the monarch, following the historic news on Thursday.

People arrived at the cemetery over the weekend after the photo of the tribute was posted online, and venue staff said there were further plans to commemorate the Queen on Monday – the day of her state funeral in London.

Theodore Hovey, family services advisor at Hollywood Forever, said it was “amazing” to see the monarch’s influence.

“We thought there was a public need to show respect so we hung a beautiful wreath and her photo,” he told the PA news agency.

“We posted it on Facebook and Instagram and the next day hundreds of people came just to see a photo, a photo of someone we’ve seen many times.

“It’s amazing how much influence she’s had.”

Mr Hovey added that details for Monday’s ceremony were not finalized but that it would be “probably very easy”.

“This is a place where we not only celebrate the dead but people’s lives and so it seemed a very appropriate place to express respect and caring,” he told the PA.

Specially made ‘memory cards’ featuring a picture of the Queen and the lyrics to ‘I Vow To Thee My Country’ were made available to the public free of charge at the venue.

The cemetery is the final resting place of Hollywood royalty including Judy Garland, Burt Reynolds, Mickey Rooney, and Johnny and Dee Dee Ramone.

More recently, actress Anne Heche and cinematographer Halyna Hutchins were also buried there.
