The Premier League has postponed all matches this weekend after the death of the Queen.

A growing number of events have been cancelled or postponed out of respect after Britain’s longest-reigning monarch died on Thursday afternoon.

It left event organisers and institutions considering their best course of action as the country entered a period of national mourning, with courts marking her death with a two-minute silence early on Friday.

The Mercury Prize was among the most notable to be postponed on Thursday night.

Here are all the major events to have been postponed so far:

Friday

It is appropriate to start with the Queen’s favourite sport.

The British Horseracing Authority announced that meetings scheduled for Friday – including the third day of the St Leger meeting at Doncaster – have been cancelled, with a decision on the weekend due shortly.

The English Football League has postponed two matches scheduled for Friday – Burnley v Norwich in the Championship and Tranmere v Stockport in League Two.
