Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin has been moved into Holyroodhouse Palace where it will remain in the throne room overnight.

The Duke of York, and the Duke and Duchess of Wesex, received the Queen’s coffin after a six-hour drive from Balmoral on Sunday.

Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward watched on from the Palace’s entrance as it was taken inside.

Around 50 members of palace staff had gathered in the courtyard to greet the Queen’s cortege.

The Queen will lie in rest at the Palace of Holyroodhouse until Monday.

The lady..... Her majesty won my total respect when she said. I wish jesus would come before I die, so I could bow and place my crown at his feet. Romans 14:11“For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”


I always knew this day was approaching, doesn't make it less sad. Praying for the Royal family.

Prince Charles should be prison for lady Diana's death or having something to do with it charges need to be pressed on him or an investigation needs to be done
