Operation London Bridge is a code phrase for the plan to follow in the UK after the Queen’s death.

The immediate unfolding of events included the announcement of her death, the official mourning, and the state funeral.

It is said most of the important decisions in the plans have been made by the monarch herself while some can only be made by her successor – Prince Charles, after her demise.
