As tens of thousands of people continue to pay their respects to Queen Elizabeth in Edinburgh, King Charles left Scotland for Northern Ireland.

In Edinburgh’s St. Giles’ Cathedral, where her body is resting, mourners waited in line for hours to join a somber procession past her oak casket.

Tuesday afternoon, it will be conveyed by cortège to Edinburgh Airport.

As part of Operation Spring Tide, the King visited Belfast for the first time as monarch.

Along with the Queen Consort, he traveled from Edinburgh Airport to Northern Ireland, where he would meet with political and religious leaders.

Later, King Charles III and Queen Camilla will return to London, where they will meet the coffin of Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace.

On Monday, mourners lined the streets of Edinburgh as the Queen’s coffin made its way up the Royal Mile from the Palace of Holyroodhouse to St Giles’ Cathedral.

Those wishing to pay their respects as the hearse makes its way to Edinburgh Airport on Tuesday afternoon have been asked to plan.

A hearse is scheduled to transport the casket from the cathedral at 16:30.

Between 16:00 and 18:30, the entire highway and adjacent roads will be closed, and diversions will be in place.

At 18:00, the coffin will be transported to RAF Northolt in London accompanied by Princess Anne.

They will fly on a plane that was used last summer to evacuate thousands of Afghans fleeing the Taliban in Kabul.

Following Russia’s invasion, the C-17 Globemaster has also been utilized to transport humanitarian aid and armaments to Ukraine.

After arriving in London soon before 19:00, the casket will be transported to Buckingham Palace, where it will be received by King Charles III, Camilla, and other members of the Royal Family.

A guard of honor comprised of the King’s Guard will receive the casket before transporting it to the Bow Room within the palace, where it will be monitored by a rota of chaplains.

The Queen’s coffin is currently resting at St. Giles’ Cathedral, where visitors can view it until 15:00.

Thousands waited overnight to pay their respects, and at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, the Scottish government stated that there was no assurance that those joining the line would be granted admission.

Cammy Day, head of the City of Edinburgh Council, praised the “amazing support” exhibited by the public and local communities in recent days.

As a city, we will look back with enormous pleasure on our role in hosting these historic events while the world watched,” he said.
