People wishing to pay their respects and observe the ceremony are very welcome. To help with this, there will be a large screen on Victoria Embankment for the public to be able to watch the ceremony. A large PA system will ensure people can also hear the service. This solution will help prevent crowding that can occur when people are struggling to see what is taking place.
