King Charles III and Camilla, the Queen Consort, arrive in Edinburgh after receiving condolences from MPs at Britain’s Parliament during a ceremony on Monday morning.
A funeral march will be taken out in memory of the Queen in Edinburgh. The Queen’s coffin was taken from Balmoral Castle to Edinburgh on Sunday. Several members of the royal family are expected to attend the funeral. The schedule looks like this:
First, the king attended the main ceremony at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, where he was presented with the keys to the city. Later, he and other members of the royal family will accompany the Queen’s casket. The path leads from the Royal Mile to St Giles’ Cathedral. Behind the coffin are the Queen’s four children: King Charles III, Princess Anne, Prince Edward and, dressed in civilian clothes as he is no longer acting royal, Prince Andrew.
