Andrew insulted during procession
The Queen’s coffin laid in the cathedral

During the procession along the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, Scotland, all of the Queen’s children stride behind her coffin through the waiting crowd. Only Prince Andrew is not allowed to wear a uniform. When a young man insults him from the side of the road, the police intervene.

The coffin of the late Queen Elizabeth II has arrived at its temporary resting place, St Giles Cathedral, after a procession through Edinburgh’s Old Town. The funeral procession on the Royal Mile in the Scottish capital was led by the new King Charles III, the Queen’s eldest son, and his siblings Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward. The procession led from the royal residence Palace of Holyroodhouse about a kilometer to the church, where a congregation had already gathered for the service, including Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon and British Prime Minister Liz Truss.

Charles also accepted a message of condolence on the death of the Queen in the Scottish Parliament. The monarch, who was accompanied by his wife Queen Camilla, wore a traditional kilt during his visit. Charles first welcomed Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon and the leaders of the other parties. Parliament Speaker Alison Johnstone said Parliament’s thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time of mourning. “Because in her we actually have a real friend and supporter.” Then the MPs were silent for two minutes in memory of the Queen.

Thousands of people lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the hearse and the royal family. The coffin wrapped in the royal standard had previously been brought to the hearse by eight kilt-wearing soldiers. A bagpiper played at the beginning before the national anthem. A guard escorted the car, which was moving at a walking pace, to its destination. During the largely silent procession, cannon shots were fired repeatedly in honor of the deceased monarch.

Arrest after Prince Andrew incident

Prince Andrew was the only one of the Queen’s four children not to wear a military uniform. Earlier this year, the Queen stripped him of all military ranks for his involvement in the abuse scandal involving the late American multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein. According to a report from the PA news agency, he is only allowed to wear a uniform once during mourning ceremonies.

During the procession, a man shouted: “Andrew, you are an old sick man,” according to Sky News. He was subsequently removed from the crowd and arrested by the police. The broadcaster cites a Scottish police report according to which a 22-year-old was arrested at 2:50 p.m. local time for disturbing the peace on the Royal Mile. A video allegedly showing the incident was circulating on Twitter.

The closed coffin is placed in the church for about 24 hours so that the population can say goodbye. The Queen died on Thursday at the age of 96 in Balmoral Castle, Scotland.
