The shifting moments had been particularly symbolic given the Queen began most days with the sound of bagpipes.

As one thing of an alarm clock, the piper would play at 9 a.m. for quarter-hour for the monarch wherever she was in residence.

Pipe Main Scott Methven, who held the function between 2015 and 2019, told the BBC final week that he obtained to know the Queen very effectively throughout his time within the place.

“It was a pleasure as her Majesty would stand and watch you play,” he instructed the BBC. “She loved the bagpipes, however she obtained to know you as an individual.”
