Queen's 4 Children Walk Behind Her Coffin As It Arrives At St. Giles

I HAVE TO SEE SOMETHING SO SPECIAL ON A DAY OF SUCH IMPORTANCE. AND THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT SEEING IMAGES LIKE THE ONE WE ARE SEEING WHERE THE QUEEN'S SONS WALK BEHIND THE FUNERAL PROCESSION, BRINGS TO MIND THE TRAGIC SCENE 25 YEARS AGO WHEN HARRY AND WILLIAM WALKED BEHIND THEIR MOTHER'S COFFIN. A WHOLE DIFFERENT CIRCUMSTANCE IN WHICH A YOUNG WOMAN DIED IN A SHOCKING AND TRAGIC MANNER. HERE WE HAVE THE QUEEN LIVING A GOOD AND LONG LIFE, 96 YEARS OLD. AND SO THE FEELING IN THE CROWD, SURE YOU WILL AGREE, HAS BEEN SADNESS AND LAMENTATION, BUT ABOVE ALL GRATITUDE, LOVE AND JOY AND AFFECTION FOR A LIFE WELL LIVED AND FOR A JOB WELL DONE.

ONE OF THE NOTES I READ WHEN WALKING THROUGH SOME OF THE FLORAL TRIBUTES QUOTES THE VERSE, WELL DONE, MY GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT, AND I THINK THAT IS WHAT WE HEAR FROM THE PUBLIC. I THINK ABOUT KING CARLOS, THERE HE IS WALKING. YOU CAN SEE IT ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE SCENE. HE IS NOT YOUR MILITARY REGAL. HE IS THE OLDEST MONARCH TO TAKE THE THRONE. WHAT SPEAKS, AS WE WELL KNOW, OF THE EXTRAORDINARY DURATION OF THE REIGN OF HIS PREDECESSOR, HIS MOTHER. BUT I THINK IT IS WORTH REFLECTING THAT AT 73 HE CARRIES A LOT ON HIS SHOULDERS THIS WEEK.

THIS RIDE AND HEAVY MILITARY CLOTHING, ONLY A MILE LONG. BUT WITH THE HEAT IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE DOES, PARTICULARLY WITH THE WEIGHT THAT HE CARRIES ON HIS SHOULDERS AND CLEARLY IN THE NEXT WEEK FOR IT. BUT THIS IS A GREAT EXAMPLE AS KEIR SAID, DUTY FIRST. THEY HAVE A LOT ON THEIR SHOULDERS BUT THEY ARE READY TO DELIVER. AND I THINK INTERACTIONS WITH PEOPLE ARE VERY IMPORTANT AS PART OF THE MORNING PROCESS. NO QUESTIONS. AND THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF THE MORNING PROCESS. WE ARE BEGINNING TO SEE THE SCOTLAND PROCESSION WHERE THE QUEEN'S COFFIN IS MOVED FROM BARMORAL AND NOW TO ST.

GILES CATHEDRAL WHERE YOU WILL LIE FOR A PERIOD OF 24 HOURS. THEY SAY THE COFFIN IS AT REST. AND MEMBERS OF THE SCOTTISH PUBLIC ARE INVITED TO COME AND PAY THEIR RESPECTS. AT THAT POINT, HE MOVES TO LONDON. I WANT TO BRING ON KEIR SIMMONS WHILE WE TALK ABOUT LOOKING FORWARD, KING CHARLES IS TOURING THE NATIONS OF THE UK AND IT'S ALL CULMINATING IN A WEEK FROM TODAY, THE FUNERAL, THE STATE FUNERAL OF QUEEN ELIZABETH II, MANY, MANY WORLD LEADERS ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND, INCLUDING PRESIDENT BIDEN. THAT'S RIGHT, SAVANNAH. WE WILL SEE SCENES LIKE THIS BEHIND US HERE OUTSIDE BUCKINGHAM PALACE AND IN LONDON IN THE COMING DAYS, AND IT'S AN OLD TRADITION.

PEOPLE CAN GO ONLINE AND SEE THE FUNERAL OF THE QUEEN'S FATHER AND SEE SIMILAR SCENES IN BLACK AND WHITE IN THE FILM. IT IS SOMETHING THAT IS TRADITIONAL, BUT ALL THIS AT THE SAME TIME HAS BEEN PLANNED A LOT BY THE QUEEN HERSELF. AND SHE WAS INVOLVED. AND ONE ANOTHER -- IT WAS HAPPENING TO ME, ANOTHER THOUGHT SEEING THIS, SAVANNAH, THE QUEEN WOULD HAVE BEEN -- WHEN SEEING PROCESSIONS LIKE THIS IN THE NEXT DAYS, KEEP WATCHED BY THE HORSES. THAT'S WHAT THE QUEEN WOULD HAVE DONE. HIS LOVE FOR HORSES EXCEEDED ALMOST EVERYTHING. I WAS WATCHING AND SAW A HORSE JUST TO THE RIGHT, THE POLICE HAD A LITTLE TROUBLE WITH THEIR HORSE BECAUSE BEFORE THIS YEAR BY TROOPING THE COLOUR, THEY TOLD US, THESE HORSES OFTEN HAVE NOT BEEN THROUGH THIS BEFORE BECAUSE -- IN PART BECAUSE FROM CORONAVIRUS.

THERE WERE NO PROCESSIONS LIKE THIS FOR A LONG TIME. IN MANY CASES THE HORSES ARE NEW DESPITE THE SILENCE OF THE CROWD, IT CAN BE A LITTLE SCARY AND THE QUEEN, WATCHING A PROCESSION LIKE THIS, WOULD HAVE SEEN EVERY DETAIL AND NOTICED ANYTHING THAT WAS NOT RIGHT AND SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN CONCERNED ABOUT ANYTHING HORSE THAT LOOKED AS IF IT WAS IN A LITTLE STRUGGLE. LET'S LOOK FOR A MOMENT. THE QUEEN CONSORT CAMILLA IS ON THE STAIRS. LET'S LOOK AT A MOMENT AS THIS MOMENT IN HISTORY UNFOLDS BEFORE US. HER MAJESTY, QUEEN ELIZABETH II, ARRIVING AT ST.

GILES CATHEDRAL IN EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND. PRAYER SERVICE ABOUT TO BE HELD, WITH THE ASSISTANCE OF SENIOR MEMBERS OF THE ROYAL FAMILY AND KING CHARLES III. THE FIRST OF MANY GOODBYE TO QUEEN ELIZABETH THIS WEEK, JUST DAYS AFTER HER DEATH, AFTER SERVING SEVEN DECADES AS MONARCH OF THE UNITED KINGDOM. YOUR CASKIN AS YOU ENTER THE CATHEDRAL IT WILL BE PLACED IN THE CENTER. THE THRONE OF SCOTLAND PLACED UPON IT. PRAYERS AND REFLECTIONS WHEN A WOMAN FROM GREAT STATES RESTS. EXACTLY. OF COURSE IT IS NOT FULLY SEPARATED YET, BUT IT REALLY HAS THE FEEL AS IF IT IS SIMILAR TO THE FUNERAL CAREER WE ARE EXPECTING ON MONDAY SEPTEMBER 19 BECAUSE IT IS A RELIGIOUS SERVICE IN A CATHEDRAL IN A CAPITAL CITY WITH PRINCIPAL MEMBERS OF THE PERSON'S FAMILY AND SENIOR MEMBERS , ABOVE ALL OF THE MONARCHY, ATTENDING TOGETHER WITH HER MAJESTY, THE COFFIN OF QUEEN ELIZABETH II.
HE WILL WEAR THE SCOTTISH CROWN ON HIM. ONCE AGAIN WE REPEAT THE POINT, A VERY, VERY SAD OCCASION, BUT ALSO A GREAT OCCASION TO ALLOW THIS TO TAKE PLACE IN MORE THAN ONE UK CITY, MORE THAN ONE UK NATION. IT'S NOT FULLY THE FUNERAL YET, OF COURSE, BUT HE HAS THAT KIND OF SOLEMN, SERIOUS FEELING ABOUT IT. ALWAYS A MOMENT WHEN YOU SEE THE CHILDREN OF THE QUEEN BECAUSE IT IS ALWAYS A STRONG REMINDER THAT EVEN THOUGH SHE IS A QUEEN, SHE IS A MOTHER AND THOSE ARE THE CHILDREN WHO MOURN THE LOSS OF THEIR MOTHER.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO SEE THESE
