Queen's coffin arrives at Palace of Holyroodhouse

STORY: At the end of its slow journey through picturesque Scottish countryside, villages, small towns and cities, soldiers wearing kilts carried the coffin to the throne room of the Palace of Holyroodhouse, Elizabeth's official Scottish residence, where it will remain overnight.

Crowds, fifteen deep in places, massed in the center of Edinburgh to greet the cortege as it made its way to Holyroodhouse.

The queen's daughter Anne, flanked by the queen's younger sons, Princes Andrew and Edward, curtsied as the coffin was carried inside by soldiers from the Royal Regiment of Scotland.

The journey from Balmoral was the first of a series of events leading up to the state funeral at Westminster Abbey in London on September 19.
