King Charles, siblings hold silent vigil for Queen Elizabeth

STORY: With their heads bowed, Charles, wearing a kilt, alongside sister Princess Anne and brothers Princes Andrew and Edward, stood solemnly for 10 minutes next to the oak coffin, draped with the Royal Standard of Scotland with a wreath of white flowers and the Crown of Scotland.

They left the city's St. Giles Cathedral to applause from onlookers.

On Tuesday, the coffin will be flown to London, where a period of lying-in state will begin on Wednesday until September 19 – the day of Elizabeth's state funeral – on a catafalque at Westminster Hall.
