After lying at rest overnight, the Queen has left Scotland for the final time and her coffin has been flown to London.

Mourners paid their respects at St Giles' Cathedral in Edinburgh until around 3.30pm on Tuesday.

Her journey to London began with the cortege making its way to Edinburgh Airport through the Scottish capital.

Cammy Day, the leader of Edinburgh's council, said the city will "look back with immense pride at the role we've played in hosting these momentous events as the world looked on".

He added: "As we say farewell to Her Majesty, and welcome our new sovereign King Charles III, I want to pay tribute to the incredible support shown by the public and our communities over the past few days, truly capturing the spirit of the Queen and her connection to Scotland and Edinburgh."

The journey to London

The coffin received a guard of honour from the Royal Regiment of Scotland at Edinburgh Airport, as well as a royal salute from the regiment's band and a verse of the national anthem.

The flight to RAF Northolt in northwest London took off shortly after 5.30pm.

Upon arrival, the coffin was removed from the plane by a bearer party into the state hearse, with a guard of honour formed by the Queen's Colour Squadron.

Mourners have gathered to see the convoy head eastwards from Northolt along the A40 until Paddington.

From there, the hearse was set to travel to Bayswater Road, past Marble Arch and down Park Lane.

The cortege was then due to make its way down Constitution Hill and through the Centre Gate of Buckingham Palace.

The coffin will rest in the Bow Room overnight, and on Wednesday will be moved to Westminster Hall to lie in state, where hundreds of thousands of mourners are expected to file past until Monday morning - the day of the Queen's funeral.
