King Charles III and Camilla, the Queen Consort, will fly to Scotland on Monday, arriving at Edinburgh Airport at 12.45pm, before travelling to the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

Huge crowds are expected to line the streets as the Queen’s coffin is taken from the palace at 2.35pm in a procession to St Giles’ Cathedral, where it will be carried inside at 2.55pm.

The King and Queen Consort, with members of the royal family, will follow the procession on foot before attending a service of reflection for the life of the Queen in the cathedral at 3pm.

The new Prime Minister Liz Truss will also attend the service.

Afterwards, the King will return to Holyrood to hold an audience with the First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, followed by an audience with Alison Johnstone, the presiding officer of the Scottish Parliament.

At 5.40pm, the King and Queen will attend the Scottish Parliament to receive a Motion of Condolence.

Joined by other members of the royal family, they will mount a vigil at 7.20pm at St Giles’ Cathedral and stay in Edinburgh overnight.

Meanwhile, members of the public will be able to view the Queen’s coffin in Edinburgh from 5pm.

A queuing system will be in place with security checks and restrictions on mobile phones will apply. Photography and recording is strictly prohibited.

Members of the public who wish to pay their respects have been warned they face long waits due to the anticipated demand.

Officials say weather conditions may be challenging and standing for a number of hours should be expected.
