The King and Queen travel to London from Balmoral

The King and Queen have left Balmoral en route to Aberdeen airport where they will fly back to London. Charles was pictured in the back of a car, with the Queen in the front passenger seat, as they were driven in convoy over the River Dee towards Ballater. The abbot said: “Chanting for someone who passed away is a Buddhist tradition. “This is sad news for all of us. “Recently we celebrated her Platinum Jubilee by inviting different faiths to our centre and that gave us a close feeling with the Queen.”
