KING Charles will make his first appearance at the Scottish Parliament as monarch on Monday to observe a motion of condolence, it has been announced.

The monarch will be joined by his wife the Queen Consort as they come together to pay tribute to the Queen.

Confirming the visit, the Scottish Parliament twitter account said: "A motion of condolence will be taken @ScotParl on Monday 12 September in the presence of His Majesty The King and The Queen Consort."

Presiding Officer Alison Johnstone said: "Members of the Scottish Parliament will come together on Monday to pay tribute to Her Majesty The Queen. We are honoured to do this in the presence of His Majesty The King and The Queen Consort."

It comes just after the date of the Queen's funeral was announced.

The state funeral will take place at Westminster Abbey on September 19 at 11am, the Earl Marshal, the Duke of Norfolk confirmed.

Further details were shared on Saturday on the  London Bridge plans, which will include a four-day lying in state at Westminster Hall from September 14.

The Queen’s oak coffin – which is lying at rest in the Ballroom at Balmoral Castle covered in a Royal Standard of Scotland with a wreath of flowers on top – will be taken by road to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh on Sunday, on a slow six-hour journey by hearse, to allow mourners gathered in the towns and villages to pay their respects.

On September 12, the coffin, which will be at rest in the Throne Room, will be taken from Holyroodhouse in procession along the Royal Mile to St Giles’s Cathedral, before being taken by air by RAF plane to London on Tuesday.

The Queen will lie in state for “four clear days” in Westminster Hall, arriving there in the afternoon of September 14, until 6.30am on the morning of her funeral, a senior palace official said.
