The coffin of Queen Elizabeth left Balmoral this morning and has now arrived at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, her royal residence in Scotland.

The late monarch’s hearse was followed by Princess Anne and her husband Sir Timothy Laurence for the entirety of the six-hour trip from Balmoral to Holyroodhouse.

The hearse transporting Queen Elizabeth’s casket outside of Edinburgh was draped in the Royal Standard of Scotland. To see the funeral pass through the city, tens of thousands of people lined the streets.

Prince Edward, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Prince Andrew, two of Queen Elizabeth’s sons, were waiting for the casket to arrive. They were accompanied by Princess Anne and Sir Timothy Laurence.

With the exception of King Charles, Camilla, the Queen Consort, and Princes William and Harry, the majority of the royal family has remained at Balmoral since the king’s passing.
The royals observed flower tributes laid outside Balmoral after attending a church service at Crathie Kirk yesterday.

Now, the Throne Room will house Queen Elizabeth’s casket. It won’t leave until tomorrow afternoon when it will depart for Edinburgh’s St. Giles Cathedral.

King Charles and other members of the royal family will follow the Queen’s coffin tomorrow as it makes its way on foot and in vehicles from the Palace of Holyroodhouse to St Giles’ Cathedral. Tomorrow, the service will be held at St. Giles.
