BBC One schedule set to return to normal three days after Queen Elizabeth II’s death

On Tuesday, her coffin is set to be brought to Edinburgh airport where Princess Anne will accompany the Queen as they travel back to Buckingham Palace before being carried to the main Bow Room.

From Wednesday to Monday her coffin is set to be placed on a raised platform in the middle of Westminster Hall until her funeral.

The funeral is expected to take place at Westminster Abbey in central London, with plans for her coffin to process on a gun carriage to the Abbey, pulled by naval sailors.

The service will be televised, and a national two minutes silence is expected to be held, with the Queen’s final resting place will be the King George VI memorial chapel where her mother and father were buried, along with the ashes of her sister, Princess Margaret.

Philip’s coffin will move from the Royal Vault to the memorial chapel to join the Queen’s.
