Elizabeth II’s final journey begins as funeral cortège leaves Balmoral for Edinburgh

The Queen's coffin has left Balmoral Castle and is traveling to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, Scotland, marking the beginning of the royal matriarch's final journey ahead of her funeral in London on September 19.
Britain's longest-serving monarch died Thursday at the age of 96 at her Scottish country estate in Balmoral.
Her son, now King Charles III, pledged the rest of his life to the monarchy after he was formally confirmed as the new King of the United Kingdom during a ceremony at St. James's Palace on Saturday.
