He departed in a vehicle driven by Camilla, the Queen’s consort.
Following the death of the 96-year-old monarch, whom he called a “beloved monarch and mother,” he spent the night at the estate.
After catching the royal helicopter from Dumfries House in Ayrshire with his wife Camilla – now Queen Consort – on Thursday, the 73-year-old spent much of the day visiting his mother’s cherished Scottish Highlands home.
In news to reports that the Queen’s health was failing, other top royals went to her side.
During this period of grief, Charles stated that he and his family will be “comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the widespread reverence and affection with which the Queen was cherished.”
At 6 o’clock this evening, the King will address the country.
At the age of three, the new monarch, born Charles Philip Arthur George, became heir to the throne, a position he would occupy for 70 years.
