Queues of thousands of people, with queues of up to six hours, formed overnight outside St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh to pay their respects to Queen Elizabeth.

The coffin of the deceased was taken to the church on Monday afternoon and will remain there until 5 local this afternoon.

Then, after prayers from the temple priests, it will be moved to Edinburgh Airport, from where it will be flown by a Royal Air Force aircraft to London, RAF Northolt Air Base.

The body will be accompanied on the flight by the Queen’s daughter, Princess Anne, and the Reverend Professor David Ferguson, Abbot of the Chapel Royal in Scotland.

On departure from the cathedral a royal salute will be given by an honor guard of the Royal Company of Archers, a company that forms the royal guard in Scotland.
