For the moment at least, the Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge, as she is now known, will remain in England to support the children at school, while her husband is in Scotland after flying to Aberdeenshire on a RAF jet. Prince William, now heir to the throne, is returning home from Balmoral to be with his family after rushing to see his grandmother before she died. He will attend the Accession Council in London on Saturday, September 10, where his father Charles III will be officially proclaimed King.

The 96-year-old monarch died at Balmoral, her Scottish summer residence, on Thursday. Overnight, family members rushed to Balmoral after doctors said they were concerned about the Queen’s health. Charles III, his wife Camilla and Princess Anne were already in Scotland when doctors first raised concerns about the Queen’s health. According to The Sun, King Charles’ helicopter was seen landing on the grounds of Balmoral on Thursday morning. Camilla travelled to Balmoral after cancelling an event at Monklands Hospital’s cancer support centre known as Maggie’s Lanarkshire, in Airdrie. Soon after, Prince William was seeing driving a car carrying Prince Andrew, Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, into the castle.

Prince Harry also raced to Scotland, alone without Meghan, but Her Majesty's death was announced while he was on approach to Aberdeen in a private jet. He spent 12 hours at Balmoral before returning to Windsor to be with Meghan. Kate had a strong relationship with Queen Elizabeth and they were often pictured smiling and laughing together. She once described Elizabeth as “very supportive” and a “doting granny” who was both thoughtful and caring. “She’s been very generous and not sort of forceful at all in any of her views,” she once said of her Majesty. “I feel she’s been sort of a gentle guidance, really, for me.”
