Her Late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, made her last journey from Scotland to England today. The beloved Queen died last week at Balmoral Castle.

Her Coffin was brought to Edinburgh on Sunday where after leaving it with her family for a night, yesterday it was taken to St. Giles’ Cathedral where more than 33000 people were able to pay their last respect to the Queen.

 

 

As per Scotland Government, “the queue to view the late monarch which wound down the Royal Mile, up George IV Bridge and past the National Museum of Scotland on Chambers Street – had closed at around 1 pm and that further efforts were made to ensure all those already waiting would be able to pay their respects before the lying at rest in Edinburgh ended at 3 pm.”

 

Yesterday, The late Monarch’s four children- King Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward stood vigil at St. Giles’ Cathedral.

The Scots bid the heartfelt farewell with a round of Applause. The Queen’s Coffin, draped in the Royal Scottish Standard and decorated with a large wreath, was brought out of Cathedral on the sound of a Pipe. And from there it was taken to Edinburgh airport for a journey to London.

A guard of honour by the King’s Bodyguard for Scotland and pipers followed the Cortege towards Edinburgh Castle and on to Edinburgh Airport airport.

The Coffin was received by the Royal Regiment of Scotland with a royal salute at the Airport and then a bearer party from the Royal Air Force carried the coffin onto the aircraft, an RAF Globemaster C-1.

The Late Queen’s only daughter, Princess Anne, was her companion since Thursday. She traveled with The Queen’s hearse on Sunday from Balmoral to Edinburgh, stayed at Edinburgh, and then traveled with the coffin from Edinburgh to London on the RAF Aircraft.

 

In London, a long line of the public was waiting to pay their respect on the route to Buckingham Palace, where The Queen’s Coffin was moved to Bow Room for the night.

Bow Room is situated beneath the state apartments and faces the gardens of the Palace. The Queen used to use the Bow Room for dinner with dignitaries.  During the garden parties, the guests usually pass through the Bow room to reach the garden.  Tomorrow, a Royal Procession will carry the Coffin to Westminster Palace where The Queen will lie in rest until Monday and the public would be allowed to pay their respect before the state funeral on Monday.

 


 

The King and The Queen today visited Northern Ireland for a series of engagements. It was the Royal couple’s first visit since ascending to the throne.
