The Queen’s coffin will be transferred from Buckingham Palace on Wednesday to the Houses of Parliament to lie in state until a state funeral at Westminster Abbey on September 19.

The hearse carrying Queen Elizabeth II's coffin passes through the Canongate onto the Royal Mile as it completes its journey from Balmoral to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, where it will rest for a day.
