Members of the Senedd will gather to pay tribute to Her Majesty The Queen and reflect on her long life, devoted to public service.  

Y Llywydd has recalled the Senedd for an extraordinary session which will begin at 3.00pm on Sunday, 11th September. The motion of condolence will be broadcast live on

The motion states “That this Senedd expresses its deep sadness at the death of Her Majesty The Queen and offers its sincere condolences to His Majesty The King and other Members of the Royal Family. We recognise Her Majesty’s enduring commitment to public service and duty, including her support for many Welsh charities and organisations, and her lifelong association with Wales and its people.”

All other Senedd business and events are suspended during the period of national mourning, and the building is closed to the public until the State Funeral has been held.  

Flags have been lowered to half-mast outside all Senedd buildings, in Cardiff and Colwyn Bay.

The latest information about events during the period of national mourning can be found on the Welsh Government website.
