Queen Elizabeth’s coffin arrives at Buckingham Palace

The coffin of Queen Elizabeth II arrived at Buckingham Palace from Edinburgh and will rest overnight in the Bow Room of the palace, the Royal Family said. “Her Majesty The Queen`s coffin has arrived at Buckingham Palace, where it will rest overnight in the Bow Room. Tomorrow the coffin will be borne in Procession on a Gun Carriage of The King`s Troop Royal Horse Artillery to the Palace of Westminster,” The Royal Family wrote on Twitter. 

The British queen breathed her last in Balmoral Castle in Scotland on September 8. Following a six-hour journey from Balmoral Castle to the Scottish capital on Sunday, her coffin arrived at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh. After it was taken from the palace of Holyroodhouse to St Giles Cathedral in a procession on Monday, the queen`s coffin was at rest in a Church in Edinburgh for people to pay their last respects to the queen.

It was flanked by the Bearer Party from the Royal Regiment of Scotland and escorted by the King`s Body Guard for Scotland and the Queen`s children at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

The Queen`s children on Tuesday held a Vigil beside her coffin in St Giles` Cathedral church.

“The people of Scotland bid their final farewells to Her Majesty The Queen as her coffin travels from Edinburgh to Buckingham Palace,” the Royal Family said.

The death of the 96-year-old Queen ended a generation-spanning, seven-decade reign that made her a beacon of stability in a tumultuous world. The UK has entered a period of official mourning, with tributes pouring in worldwide.
