Her clip of the miniatures has garnered more than 185,000 views on TikTok.

Incredible scenes of community spirit can be seen at the park by Buckingham Palace as it shows the endless lines of flowers, tributes, cuddly toys, candles and cards covering the green grass and walkways, with Royal Park staff seen heading to and from their trucks to continue laying down bouquets.

Now members of the public who have gone down to Green Park to both soak up the atmosphere and pay their respects for the late Queen Elizabeth II have started helping out the gardeners by removing the plastic wrap of bunches of flowers so the later job of turning them into compost is made much easier.
