Queen Elizabeth II: Last voyage from Balmoral Castle to Edinburgh

Three days after her death, Queen Elizabeth II, who died at the age of 96, embarked on her final journey. At 11:07 a.m., the coffin containing the mortal remains of the monarch left Balmoral Castle. The black Mercedes is accompanied by a second car in which Princess Anne and her husband Sir Tim Laurence are sitting. The 72-year-old will accompany her mother's coffin to Edinburgh.

Even Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon, not exactly known as a royalist as a supporter of her country's exit from the UK, has spoken out. "A sad and poignant moment as Her Majesty the Queen leaves her beloved Balmoral for the last time," she wrote on Twitter. "Today Scotland will pay tribute to an extraordinary woman as she travels to Edinburgh."
