Meanwhile, Charles and his Queen Consort will travel to Westminster Hall, where both Houses of Parliament will meet to offer their condolences.

The king will give “his answer”.

He and Camilla will then fly into Edinburgh Airport, landing around 12.45pm before heading to Holyroodhouse to inspect the honor guard.

The Keys Ceremony follows, at which Charles is presented with the keys to the City of Edinburgh and is welcomed into ‘your ancient and ancestral Kingdom of Scotland’.

At 2.35pm the hearse carrying the Queen’s coffin leaves Holyroodhouse for a 1,200 yard procession to St Giles’ Cathedral on the Royal Mile.

Charles and other royals will follow.

At 2.55pm the coffin is carried into the cathedral where the crown of Scotland will be donned.

A short service follows with a congregation from “all walks of Scottish society”.

The coffin will rest in the cathedral for 24 hours to allow the people of Scotland to pay their last respects to Queen Elizabeth.

Vigils are hosted by the Royal Company of Archers.

But at 7.20pm, Charles and other members of the royal family will conduct their own, known as the Prince’s Vigil – similar to what they did for the Queen Mother in 2002.

At 5pm the Queen’s coffin is taken from St Giles’ Cathedral to Edinburgh Airport by hearse.
