I don’t think I’ve ever heard of the Golden Arches closing for any person, man or woman, regardless of how important they were or what their job title was.
Well apparently being the Queen of England since 1952 is enough to do the trick, which is a real bummer for anyone who was looking to get a Big Mac for lunch on Monday…
All of our UK restaurants will be closed on Monday until 5pm, to allow everyone at McDonald’s to pay their respects to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Operating hours and services may vary after 5pm, so please check our app before travelling. pic.twitter.com/OOws3q8hnb

Wow, McDonald’s really making a statement with this one. However, don’t think we don’t notice that 5PM opening time. The Queen needs to be honoured and remembered but obviously not to the point of Ronald McDonald losing out on millions of pounds from shutting down every McDonald’s in the UK for 24 hours.
In fact this is a bit like the football situation over the weekend with all the games being cancelled. How do we know the Queen wouldn’t want McDonald’s to be open in her memory? I guess we never will for sure…
