Death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

The staff at Franks & Co were saddened to learn of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Our thoughts are with His Majesty King Charles III and the rest of the Royal Family.

The United Kingdom is now officially in a period of mourning until after the Queen’s state funeral which is to be held on Monday 19 September. Normal day-to-day business will continue throughout this period.

The UK government has declared the day of the funeral to be a national Bank Holiday, so the United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office will be closed on Monday 19 September.

The United Kingdom Intellectual Property Office’s official guidance on bank holidays is given below:

The office is deemed to be closed on weekends, Good Friday, Christmas Day and all England and Wales bank holidays for all types of business, except for the filing of new applications not claiming priority. If documents are filed for these types of business at times when the office is deemed to be closed, they will receive an official filing date of the next working day.

Any official time period which expires on a weekend or any other day on which the office is closed is extended to the next working day.

CoppaFeel! is a breast cancer awareness charity set up by Kristin Hallenga who in February 2009 at the age of just 23 was diagnosed with breast cancer. Kristin's charity has a mission to stamp out late detection and misdiagnosis of breast cancer by educating young women to know the signs and symptoms of breast cancer and to check their breasts regularly.

Celebrities Fearne Cotton and Dermot O'Leary are both patrons of CoppaFeel!, which has a busy calendar of events including FestiFeel! Music festival and a university-based breast awareness campaign launching in October.
