    Charles III of England received the keys to the Scottish city of Edinburgh on Monday as part of an act held shortly before the mass that will take place in the Cathedral of San Gil to commemorate the figure of Queen Elizabeth II, who died on Thursday at the 96 years.

    During the ceremony, the Lord Provost of Edinburgh, Robert Aldridge, offered the keys to the city to the monarch, who touched them and proceeded to pronounce the ceremonial message: “I return these keys, perfectly convinced that they cannot be in better hands than those of the Lord Provost and the councilors of my good city of Edinburgh”.

    The act of handing over the keys took place after 21 salvos were fired from Edinburgh Castle and the national anthem was played in front of the Palace of Holyroodhouse in honor of the new king, formally proclaimed on Saturday after the death of his mother.

    Charles III is expected to lead a procession in which the coffin with the corpse of the queen will leave the palace to be transferred to the cathedral of San Gil. The king and other members of the royal family will follow the coffin during what is known as the Royal Mile.
