The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow."

British brands in particular have released touching tributes, with designer Stella McCartney saying, "It is with great sadness that we mourn today the passing of Her Majesty The Queen. On behalf of the Stella McCartney team, I would like to express my sincerest condolences to the Royal Family." Vivienne Westwood, whose logo famously resembles the Sovereigns Orb which is one of the British crown jewels, that was created for the coronation of King Charles II said, "The Queen performs a national service. Every morning she has her breakfast, most days her outfit is already decided for her royal appointment - shake hands, give speeches. Every institution in our country wants her acknowledgement and attribution. Her life is prescribed. The Royal family, as an institution, is social cement. The Queen holds the country together. She’s a figurehead of international diplomacy. I think it’s so important that our Royal family is hereditary, the family member’s learn diplomacy by osmosis and develop a sense of duty to our country and to the world. We all owe her our gratitude."
