People around the world are still mourning the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
Paddington bear stuffed toys and the character's favourite snack, marmalade sandwiches – a nod to a video created for the queen's jubilee marking her 70 years on the throne in June – were left all over the UK as mourners said goodbye to their queen.
Further, Buckingham Palace reveals some 50 000 cards and letters have been sent to King Charles, with people saying their final farewell.
"A small but dedicated Correspondence Team are carefully sorting, reading and responding to the messages as they arrive," the royal family shared, with photos of the letters.
