The Queen’s coffin arrives at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Edinburgh


The coffin containing the body of the late Queen Elizabeth II has arrived at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in the Scottish capital, after a long procession from her Balmoral estate in the Highlands.

The late Queen, whose ancestry James VI, King of Scots, first united the crowns of Scotland and England in 1603 when her namesake Elizabeth I of England died childless, will rest in the hall from the throne at night.

The Queen was accompanied on her journey by her only daughter, Anne, the Princess Royal, and met by soldiers from the Royal Regiment of Scotland, of which she was Colonel-in-Chief.
