Flowers for the Queen have been spotted on a Holocaust memorial in Hyde Park, London, sparking a backlash online.
The memorial, opened in 1983, consists of two boulders lying within a gravel bed surrounded by silver birch trees; it is the first Holocaust memorial set up in the country.
One of the boulders reads "Holocaust Memorial Garden" - and directly below the words "for these I weep, streams of tears flow from my eyes because of the destruction of my people" are inscribed.
The quote, from the Book of Lamentations, is written in English and Hebrew.
Journalist Grace Dean on Monday tweeted: “The Holocaust Memorial Garden in Hyde Park has now become a makeshift Queen Memorial Garden", followed by photographs of the memorial littered with tributes to the late monarch.
Among the tributes was a piece of paper directly below the inscriptions reading: "thank you for everything, ma'am" – accompanied by a photograph of the Queen, and a drawing of a Millennium Eye and Big Ben.
Another tribute on top of the boulder read: "To our beloved Queen, thank you for being such an amazing monarch for the past 70 years. Rest in peace. Forever in our thoughts. All our love, Scott and Kim xxx."
The tributes have triggered a backlash. "This is so profoundly inappropriate," said London-based Rabbi Lev Taylor tweeted on Monday.
"Not only is this completely inappropriate, there is no doubt in my mind that the King – who has been a trustee of the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust for many years and has regularly taken the time to meet survivors – would be absolutely horrified to hear about this," he said.
Author and genocide expert Arnesa Buljušmić-Kustura described the scene as "beyond shameful".
It is estimated around six million Jewish people were murdered in the Holocaust at the hands of the Nazis during World War Two, one of the worst genocides in human history.
Responding to Dean's tweet, Royal Parks said they were now "carefully removing" tributes.
“Good morning Grace," it said. "The team are carefully removing the tributes from the Holocaust Memorial and laying them with the others in the official floral tribute area.
It added: "There is also a steward placed there permanently to direct people paying their respects to the floral tribute area."
It comes after 10 days of national mourning for the Queen, with tens of thousands of tributes left in the area surrounding Buckingham Palace since her death.
Hundreds of thousands of Brits descended on London for the day of the Queen's funeral on Monday to catch a glimpse of her funeral procession.
