Queen’s coffin lying in rest at St Giles’ Cathedral



The commemorations for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth continue, as her coffin lays in rest at St Giles’ Cathedral in Scotland

Members of the public are now able to file past to pay their respects, with many mourners bursting into tears as they do so.

It follows King Charles III leading a vigil alongside his siblings, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

The symbolic service saw the Queen’s four children surround her coffin to stand guard for a short time.

Earlier in the day, Charles addressed U.K. parliament for the first time as King, at Westminster Hall.

He paid tribute to his mother, as the Speakers of the Commons and Lords gave their formal condolences.

Charles described parliament as the “living and breathing instrument” of Britain’s democracy, vowing to follow the Queen’s “selfless duty” during his reign.

During this event, Charles was visibly moved as ‘God Save the King’ was sung out by those in attendance.

Charles also addressed the Scottish Parliament for the first time as monarch.

Joined by his wife, Queen Consort Camilla, the event allows motion Members of the Scottish Parliament to reflect on the Queen’s life of “exceptional public service”.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon recounted her fond memories of Queen Elizabeth II.

Like his mother, Charles says he has the greatest sense of admiration for the Scottish people.

So what’s next?

Following the Vigil, the Queen’s coffin will rest at St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh until 5:00 PM local time on Tuesday.

It will then be transported from Edinburgh to the city’s airport, before it is flown to west London.

Princess Anne will accompany her mother, as the coffin makes its way to Buckingham Palace.

Here it will be met by King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Consort.

Up until that point, the King and Queen Consort will continue their tour of the nations by visiting Belfast, before travelling to London.

Microsoft recalls ‘Recall AI’ feature over security fears



Microsoft has announced a postponement in the release of its new Recall AI feature, citing significant security concerns raised during internal testing.

Pope Francis took charge of discussions on the implications of artificial intelligence for global ethics and governance, Reuters reports.

The pope said AI represented an “epochal transformation” for mankind, but stressed the need for close oversight of the ever-developing technology to preserve human life and dignity.

“No machine should ever choose to take the life of a human being,” he said, adding that people should not let superpowerful algorithms decide their destiny.
“We would condemn humanity to a future without hope if we took away people’s ability to make decisions about themselves and their lives, by dooming them to depend on the choices of machines,” he warned.
