According to Operation London Bridge, Sunday 11 September marks D-Day +2 or D+2 in the plan for the aftermath of Queen Elizabeth II’s death.
Her coffin, which currently rests in Balmoral, will soon embark on a six-hour journey to Edinburgh, with several stops along the day.
The mourning period will end with the state funeral, which takes place on Monday 19 September and will be a national bank holiday.
Where is the Queen’s coffin going today?
The Queen’s coffin left Balmoral at 10am and will pass Ballater in Aberdeenshire along the A93 twelve minutes later at 10.12am.
The cortege will then arrive at 11 am in Aberdeen via the A93, where the Lord Provost of Aberdeen, in his role as Lord-Lieutenant, will lead a tribute at Duthie Park.
The cortege will then travel south along the A90 to Dundee, where it arrives at 2pm. Members of the public are invited to pay their respects in safe standing areas along the A90 Forfar Road and Kingsway.
The cortege will then head to Edinburgh at 4pm, where First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and other party leaders in Scotland are expected to observe the coffin as it goes past the Scottish parliament.
All the pavements along the route from the north of the city to the Scottish parliament will be lined with barriers to allow the public to view from there.
From there, the coffin will be taken into the Palace of Holyroodhouse, where it will remain for the night.
What time will the procession be?
It is understood a Ceremony of the Keys will take place at Holyroodhouse before the solemn procession sets off from there at around 2.30pm.
It will travel up the Royal Mile to St Giles’ Cathedral for a service expected to last about an hour.
Crowds are expected to line the street as the procession passes, and a series of road closures in the Capital have already been announced.
