As the royal convoy travelled down the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, the crowd fell silent in respect for the Queen as her coffin passed.
Moments later, a round of applause and cheers broke out across the crowd.
Crowds have filled the Royal Mile once again in Edinburgh as people wait for the arrival of the royal procession.
People could be seen standing solemnly as they waited for the convoy, which is led by the hearse carrying the Queen’s coffin.
A single motorbike police outrider led the way as the hearse, followed by six vehicles, travelled at a stately pace through the Aberdeenshire countryside.
At one point, as the cortege travelled through Dundee, a lone long-stemmed flower could be seen on the hearse windscreen and in a rural part of the route farmers paid homage to the Queen with tractors lined up in a field.
