The funeral processions of Diana, Princess of Wales, will take

place on Saturday 6 September. The funeral service will be held at

11am at Westminster Abbey.

Given the very large numbers of people expected, space along the

processional route will be extremely limited and it may not be

possible to accommodate everyone.

A large TV screen will be erected in Hyde Park for people who are

unable to see the procession directly.

Most, if not all, food shops, stalls and supermarkets will be closed.

There are few refreshment facilities in the area and people are

strongly advised to bring their own food and drink as well as warm

and waterproof clothing.
