'She gave us everything': mourners gather at palace

STORY: Walking past the floral and candle tributes to the Queen, 41-year-old Watford resident Amy Gibbs said the Queen's death was a big loss and it had touched her.

"I think she was an amazing lady that did her absolute best and gave us everything," she told Reuters while wiping away her tears.

She and her son Harrison were among those trying to beat the crowds which have gathered daily at the palace since the announcement of the Queen's death on Thursday (September 8).
