The BBC has said you don’t need a TV licence to watch the coverage of the funeral and other live ceremonial events during the national period of mourning up to and including Wednesday, September 21.

This dispensation also allows communities organising events in premises such as town halls, community centres and streets across Britain, where TV is not usually watched, to screen the ceremonial events live.

The full guidance can be found here
