Flowers, cards and Paddington Bears left for the Queen are removed by Shire horses from Green Park

Thousands of floral tributes and Paddington Bears left in Green Park and Hyde Park in memory of the Queen have begun to be cleared away.

Staff and volunteers from the Royal Parks charity were seen collecting the honors and placing them in carts pulled by two Shire horses.

They are taken to the Leaf Pen in Kensington Gardens where the flowers are mixed with foliage and other green waste, composted and made into mulch.

The toy teddies are said to be stored in a room within the parks pending a decision as to what to do with them.

All compost made from flowers will be used for shrubs and trees that will delight millions of visitors in the coming year.

Andrew Williams, Parks Manager, Kensington Gardens, The Royal Parks, said: “The thousands of tributes that have been left showed great sentiments for the people who have traveled from across the country to pay their respects to the Queen and they have created a calm atmosphere and beautiful garden that is visited by so many.

“We felt it appropriate to continue the Tribute story by creating compost at our green waste facility here in Kensington Gardens to support new shoots of life and colorful floral displays in spring.

“The mulch derived from the organic matter will enrich the soil of the Royal Parks for years to come. The flowers will bring joy to millions of future visitors to the Royal Parks and enrich these incredible green spaces in London by providing valuable habitat for invertebrates, including bees and butterflies.’

Paddington became an unlikely symbol of grief following Her Majesty’s death earlier this month.

Hundreds of the furry blue duffle coat sports figures were laid in honor of the Queen in places like Green Park and Hyde Park.

There were so many of them that organizers asked that only floral tributes remain – effectively banning the bears.

But the polite request fell on deaf ears and the Paddingtons kept coming, many of whom were clearly visible and on the spot this morning.

The organizers have a difficult decision to make as they are of obvious sentimental value, but after at least a week in the elements it seems unlikely that they are in a giftable condition.

Children across the country paid their respects with the teddy bears and sandwiches in a nod to the adorable sketch filmed in June to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Michael Bond’s beloved bear appeared in a comic sketch with the Queen to celebrate her platinum anniversary in June.

Paddington Bear hilariously defies royal etiquette by drinking straight from the teapot, crushing a cake and pulling a jam sandwich out of his hat.

Queen Elizabeth took the opportunity to show off her sense of humor by pulling a sandwich out of her bag, which she is saving “for later”.
