 Thousands have gathered outside of Buckingham palace in London, England to pay their respects to the Queen of England. This is day one after the world received news of the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The mood was blue, and the weather turned into heavy rain, but that did not stop many people from around the world making their way to the palace to "show their respects" and lay flowers at the palace gates.

This rehearsal has been changed and practiced since the 1960s. Here’s what happens on day one.
