What happens next? The second day of mourning the Queen’s death will see her coffin begin the 500-mile journey from Balmoral Castle to Buckingham Palace
The Queen’s 500-mile journey from her beloved Balmoral Castle to Buckingham Palace begins today.
Tens of thousands of people are expected to pay their respects as Her Majesty is whisked away to Edinburgh, which will become the first major focal point of a grieving nation.
After a night at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, the Queen will rest for 24 hours at St. Giles Cathedral. His coffin will be flown to London on Tuesday, before being taken to Buckingham Palace.
Every step of his extraordinary three-day journey will be watched closely by British audiences coming to terms with their grief.
