On 8 September 2022, Her Majesty The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral Castle in the Scottish Highlands.
The longest reigning Monarch in British history, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II served the United Kingdom for over 70 years. Monday 19 September has been declared as the date of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s State Funeral. This date has also been announced as a national bank holiday to allow individuals, businesses and other organisations to commemorate Her Majesty’s historic reign and pay their respects.
As a mark of respect to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Town & City Gift Cards will remain closed on this national bank holiday, and no orders will be posted on this day. The Town & City Gift Cards office will reopen on Tuesday 20 September, and any new orders will be despatched as soon as possible.
King Charles III, formerly known as The Prince of Wales, has requested that the period of Royal Mourning be observed until seven days after Her Majesty The Queen’s funeral. The team at Town & City Gift Cards would like to express our heartfelt condolences to the British Royal Family at this time of great sorrow.
