Queen Elizabeth’s coffin has arrived in the Scottish capital Edinburgh.
The coffin of Queen Elizabeth II arrived in the Scottish capital Edinburgh on Sunday afternoon, after a six-hour journey through the Scottish countryside.
Huge crowds gathered along the city’s iconic Royal Mile to bid farewell to the Queen, who died on Thursday at the age of 96.
Mourners lined the streets as the coffin carrying Queen Elizabeth II passed through the cities of Aberdeen and Dundee – two key stops along its six-hour journey to Edinburgh.
The coffin was driven along Aberdeen’s North Deeside Road passing along the Great Western Road, before passing by Duthie Park, a 44-acre public park.
Members of the public, as well as former and current members of the armed forces, gathered in great numbers along the park’s perimeter on the Great Southern Road for a special ceremony.
The coffin will subsequently arrive at the forecourt of the Palace of Holyroodhouse, where it will be greeted with an honor guard made up of the Royal Regiment of Scotland who will perform a royal salute in the forecourt.
The coffin will be transferred to the palace’s Throne Room, where household staff will be able to pay their final respects to the late monarch similar to how the coffin was placed in the ballroom at Balmoral Castle.
