The coffin with the mortal remains of Queen Elizabeth II has left this Sunday around 10:00 (one more hour in mainland Spain) from Balmoral Castle, at the beginning of a journey of about six hours to Edinburgh.

The funeral procession, in which Princess Anne, daughter of the late queen, participates, will travel more than 280 kilometers and pass through the towns of Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen, Angus and Tayside before reaching the capital of Scotland.

Once in Edinburgh, a funeral chapel will be set up in the Throne Room of Holyrood Palace, the main residence of the monarchy in Scotland. Already on Monday, a mass will take place in the cathedral of San Gil which will be attended by the new king, Charles III.

Edinburgh has woken up this Sunday with a significant security deployment and, during the night, drills have been carried out to finalize all the details of the funeral procession, which is expected to attract a large number of citizens, according to the BBC public broadcaster.
