The official British state channel canceled its programming until 6:00 p.m. local time.
Following the news of Queen Elizabeth II’s delicate health condition, BBC One suspended its regular programming. The official television station is currently broadcasting a BBC news special, which, according to various media reports, will be followed by the scheduled BBC News at six, starting at six o’clock in the evening.
Presenter Huw Edwards showed up in a dark suit, white shirt, and black tie, all in keeping with the BBC’s dress code for when a member of the Royal Family passes away. Since that time, the channel has been dedicated to broadcasting continuous news coverage of Elizabeth II’s health.
