Queen Elizabeth’s coffin at St Giles Cathedral memorial – live updates

EDINBURGH, Scotland — King Charles III, dressed in the ceremonial uniform of a field marshal, and his three siblings, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward marched behind a hearse carrying her mother’s coffin on Monday in a solemn procession attended by thousands along the Royal Mile in the historic heart of the Scottish capital of Edinburgh.

The hearse was flanked by a group of bearers from the Royal Regiment of Scotland and a detachment from The King’s Body Guard in Scotland, the Royal Company of Archers. Following the procession, a memorial service for Queen Elizabeth II was held at St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh.

The coffin, with the Crown of Scotland on a cushion, will remain in the 12th-century cathedral until Tuesday. Shortly after the service ended, members of the public, some of whom had been waiting since dawn, were allowed inside to pay their respects to the late queen.
