Mourners burn incense papers for the late Queen

Mourners expressed condolence to the late Queen Elizabeth II by laying flowers, signing the condolence books, leaving Paddington Bears and marmalade sandwiches or queuing for hours to see the Queen lying in state. But in Hong Kong, a citizen burnt joss paper, traditional Chinese worship to the Queen.

A photo shared on social media showed a citizen bringing a joss paper parcel to a temple where the parcel was addressed to the late Queen's birthplace, Bruton Street in Mayfair, London.

Some netizens said the late Queen was a Christian, so that she won't receive the parcel.

Also, over 12,000 people signed the condolence books at British Consulate-General Hong Kong in Admiralty. Hundreds of Hong Kong residents were seen lining up in front of the British Consulate-General for hours each day to pay their respects to the late Queen, leaving piles of flowers and handwritten notes.

Brian Davidson, the British Consul General to Hong Kong and Macao sent a message of thanks for people's tributes to the late Queen.

"We have been hugely touched by the patient, contemplative, quiet dignity of the crowds outside last week. Neither hot weather, nor long waiting times, have deterred the thousands of individuals who wanted to say their own final personal farewell to Our Late Queen," he said.
