The royal family continues to mourn the Queen until seven days after the funeral.

Charles is believed to have traveled to Scotland with Queen Consort to mourn in private.

Members of the royal family are not expected to carry out official engagements, and flags in the royal residences will remain half-fly until 8am after the last day of royal mourning.

Earlier, anti-terror police confirmed that they had received more than 800 reports from the public about suspicious activity during the operation after the death of the Queen – twice the average level.

Matt Jokes, the head of counter-terrorism police, said one in eight of the reports submitted during the mourning period, known as Operation London Bridge, were “actively being used as intelligence” by investigators.
