To allow families to watch the televised funeral of Queen Elizabeth II, few British schools in Dubai will close early on Monday. While others will have a two-minute silence as a mark of respect . The funeral service will take place at 2pm UAE time.

After securing permission from the Knowledge and Human Development Authority, Dubai College said in a letter to parents it would close early on Monday. 

The school said it was proposing to close at the start of lunch at 12.25pm.

Children who do not leave early will watch the broadcast live in the auditorium in place of regular lessons.

Taaleem Group, which has three British curriculum schools in Dubai, said its pupils would have the option to finish the school day earlier on Monday.

Schools said the KHDA authority has asked them to secure the vote of parents in favour of or against the early closure. The support of the majority will influence the final decision
