King Charles flies to Scotland day after Queen’s funeral

King Charles has flown to Scotland the day after the Queen’s funeral service.

He left Aberdeen airport on Tuesday afternoon after flying in from RAF Northolt in west London.

Pictures show the King in the back of an Audi leaving the Scottish airport.

He and Queen Consort Camilla are believed to have flown to Scotland to grieve privately.

Yesterday his mother, Queen Elizabeth, was laid to rest alongside Prince Philip in a ceremony at St George’s Chapel in Windsor.

The royal family is observing another week of mourning after the state funeral on Monday.

The Queen, the longest-reigning monarch in British history, died at Balmoral on 8 September.
