King Charles to visit Scottish Parliament on Monday

King Charles and the Queen Consort will visit the Scottish Parliament on Monday.

MSPs will meet to consider a motion of condolence following the death of the Queen.

The parliament will gather to pay tribute to the Queen's public service and her relationship with Scotland.

The format for the event in the Chamber will see the Presiding Officer Alison Johnstone welcome the King and The Queen Consort to the Chamber before inviting each of the party leaders to speak to the motion.  

The King will then respond to the motion. 

The Presiding Officer said: “People across Scotland continue to mourn the passing of Her Majesty The Queen and I wish to express on behalf of the Scottish Parliament our deepest condolences to His Majesty The King and The Royal Family. 

“This motion of condolence will provide an opportunity for the Parliament to come together to pay tribute to The Queen’s life of service and her enduring bond with Scotland and its people. 

 “This day will also mark a significant milestone for the country as we welcome The King to the Scottish Parliament for the first time as monarch.”
