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.

The individual reportedly triggered wild swings and volatility on the New York Stock Exchange.

A number of big brand names were caught up in the catastrophe. It included McDonald’s, Walmart, and Mobil.

The NYSE eventually came clean. Officials admitted the“root cause” of the screw-up was a “manual error” from a staff member in the backup data centre.

The employee accidentally left the system running.

That’s why some stocks behaved as if trading had already started, with no opening prices being set, sending the market into a meltdown. #trending #featured

On Thursday, Wray urged lawmakers and officials to be “conscious of the rules” when dealing with classified documents.

The statements appear to be a veiled criticism of President Biden after news broke that some of the classified papers in the President’s possession date back 14-years ago to when Biden was a Delaware Senator raising questions if this is a pattern for the president to mishandle classified information.

Meanwhile, on Capitol Hill, there is bipartisan outrage as lawmakers say the Biden administration is stonewalling them in their quest for answers.
