Dubai, The Gulf Observer: Dubai’s Burj Khalifa lit up in the colors of the Union Jack and a portrait of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II was projected onto the iconic building in tribute to the monarch on Sunday.

The world’s tallest building featured the queen’s image days after she died aged 96 on Thursday.Other global landmarks including the Eiffel Tower in France, the Empire State Building in New York City, and Australia’s iconic Sydney Opera House paid tribute to the queen.

On Monday afternoon, Queen Elizabeth II’s four children walked silently behind a hearse carrying her flag-draped coffin along a crowd-lined street in Edinburgh to a cathedral. A service of thanksgiving at St Giles’ Cathedral hailed the late monarch as a “constant” in the lives of all Brits for over 70 years.
