As part of Operation London Bridgeat the funeral and death of Her Majesty, a muted carillon chimes for an hour.

Since the death of King George VI, the majority of Britain’s 16,000 churches have never rang completely muted queens father.

That said Vicki Chapman, spokeswoman for the Central Council of Church Bell Ringers post on Sunday: “We have spent much time speaking with the Royal Household and Lambeth Palace about the day when the monarch passes away, which we hope will not be anytime soon.

“Adding mutes makes the bells sound sad, more like a hum – so they sound more like boom, boom, boom than dong, dong, dong.

“It’s about honoring the service of the monarch and commemorating her life.”

Leather goods across the country have reported a surge in bulk orders for the specialty products.

Philip Pratt of Big Wilf’s Bell Muffles near Bristol added: “We’re getting a lot of inquiries and we’re taking more and more orders.

“Muffles are a specialist product and are made by very few leather makers in the UK.”

Full muffles are used to deaden the sound of both strikes of the chime and are reserved only for the monarch’s death.

On Memorial Sunday and at funerals, the bells are sometimes rung half-muted with a muted chime.

A church with six bells would require 12 muffles at a cost of around £45 each.

The secret plan for the code-named Operation London Bridge also includes arrangements for increased security, Covid emergencies and even the royal family’s social media accounts.

It meticulously chronicles the preparations for the 10 days from the death of the monarch to her state funeral at Westminster Abbey.

Prince Charles will address the nation on the night of the Queen’s passing, before embarking on a funeral tour of Britain.

The Prime Minister is briefed by the highest courtier of Buckingham Palace, while the Head of Civil Service and Chief Ministers are also briefed.

Within 10 minutes, the flags will be lowered to half-mast over government buildings and Parliament will adjourn if it is in session.

As if Prince Philip died last year, the royal family’s website will return to a black hold page confirming this queen Death.


A national minute’s silence will be held, the Prime Minister will have an audience with the newcomer at 6pm King Charleswhose successor is codenamed Operation Spring Tide.

After his London duties, Charles will embark on a tour of the UK, visiting Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The Queen’s coffin is on public display ahead of her funeral.

Because of the increased threat of terrorism, the Ministry of the Interior will strengthen the security presence in the city.

And the Foreign Office will try to negotiate entry for foreign dignitaries who could be blocked by future Covid restrictions.

Your Majesty95, recently withdrew from an Easter service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor on April 14 but is being replaced by instead Prince Charles and Camilla.

It is the first time that the Prince of Wales has taken the Queen’s seat at the Green Day service.

The annual event is a key part of the royal calendar and will result in Charles following the old tradition of distributing Maundy money to the ward’s faithful on Thursday.

He and Camilla will serve as Dean of Windsor Right Reverend David Conner KCVO and Lord High Almoner Right Reverend Dr. Meet John Inge.
