Hyde Park is expecting about 100,000 mourners Monday as the country prepares to say goodbye to Her Majesty on the day of her funeral.
The royal park has already set up four large screens and food trucks as they expect campers to arrive early on Sundays to get the best spots.
Since the Queen’s death, the roads around Buckingham Palace and Westminster have been ordered by security teams to ensure that mourners are properly dropped off.
A Hyde Park SES site manager told the MailOnline that two stages have also been set up, but ‘nobody knows what for’.
The regulator also said campers will be allowed in as the land is public and therefore no one would stop them.
Speaking to MailOnline, the director said 100,000 people could come to the park ‘easily’ and, pointing to the greenery, said, ‘Say it so, you know all that green grass? You won’t get a knife from it on Monday.’
He added that the number of people will easily exceed the 62,000 shown on the day of Harry and Meghan’s wedding.
