Max Blain, the prime minister’s official spokesperson, said on Wednesday, that the day of the funeral would operate as a standard bank holiday. McDonald’s joined other businesses including Argos, Harrods, Holland & Barrett, Ikea, and Lidl on closing for the day.

“Individual businesses will need to make the decisions about what is right for them, and discuss with their employees, but there is obviously no one-size-fits-all approach,” Blain said.

The fast food giant also confirmed that staff will not financially suffer from the closing, saying, “All company-owned restaurant employees will be paid for their scheduled hours.”
