The Way Princess Anne Honored The Queen Upon Seeing Her Coffin Arrive In Edinburgh

Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8. Her death was confirmed after the palace shared that her doctors were "concerned" for her health. "Following further evaluation this morning, the Queen's doctors are concerned for Her Majesty's health and have recommended she remain under medical supervision," the statement said, according to BBC News. In the hours that followed, several of the queen's close family members, including her four children — Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, and Prince Edward — traveled to Balmoral Castle in Scotland to be by her side.

Following her death, Queen Elizabeth's coffin was placed in the ballroom at Balmoral Castle where it was draped in the royal standard of Scotland and adorned with a wreath, according to NBC News. On Sunday, September 11, the coffin was transported to Edinburgh, passing through citizen-lined streets as hundreds came out to pay their respects. When the hearse arrived at the Palace of Holyroodhouse, six gamekeepers carried it inside while the queen's daughter Princess Anne along with Prince Andrew looked on. As the queen's body passed in front of them, Princess Anne curtsied, according to People magazine.

The queen's coffin will remain at the Palace of Holyroodhouse overnight before being taken to St. Giles Cathedral on Monday. The next day, the coffin will be flown to London where the queen will lie in state for four days at Westminster Hall, according to Town & Country. Queen Elizabeth's funeral will be held on Monday, September 19.
