King Charles III will lead the royal family in procession behind the coffin of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, as she travels to a cathedral in Edinburgh.
The Queen travel from the Palace of Holyroodhouse to nearby St Giles’ Cathedral, where her family and a congregation from all walks of Scottish society will attend a service of thanksgiving for her life.
Details of the royal mourners have not yet been released, but there is speculation that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex along with the new Prince and Princess of Wales could be present.
For part of the procession, King Charles will lead part of the family on foot, with the Duke of York, the Earl of Wessex, the Princess Royal and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence expected.
Other members of the royal family, including the Queen Consort, will follow in cars.
The public can view the coffin for 24 hours before it is taken to London, where it will be laid out.
In the evening, the king and other family members hold a vigil in the cathedral in honor of their mother.
The King and Queen Consort are currently in London and before heading to the Scottish capital they will visit Westminster Hall where both Houses of Parliament will offer their condolences to the new monarch and his wife.
During his day in Edinburgh, the King will inspect the guard of honor at the Palace of Holyroodhouse before attending the handing over of the keys ceremony in the forecourt.
At the Palace, the King will hold audiences with First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, followed by an audience with Alison Johnstone, Speaker of the Scottish Parliament.
Words of condolence are offered by the Scottish Parliament when Charles and Camilla are present to receive a motion of condolence.
