The Queen “understood she wasn’t coming back from Balmoral.”

According to a royal analyst, the Queen understood she wasn’t going to return back and desired to pass at Balmoral as she could literally leave her crown at the gates and play a different role.

Katie Nicholl, Vanity Fair’s royal correspondent, spoke on the BBC today ahead of the thanksgiving ceremony at St Giles’ Cathedral, where the Queen’s coffin will stay until Tuesday, when it will be taken to London ahead of the state burial from the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

Her Majesty died on Thursday at the age of 96 in Balmoral, where she had spent much of the summer despite having ‘mobility concerns.’

Katie went on to say that the Queen may just be a “mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother there” and “leave her crown at the gates.”

Despite having major health difficulties, the Queen chose to spend a significant amount of time in Balmoral throughout the summer, Huw explained.

That choice really tells a lot about the fact that she was A) very comfortable at Balmoral, somewhere she was pleased to go with plenty of pleasant memories, however she also knew that with health difficulties and the obstacles there, it may be a tough stay, but still she persisted on making the trip.

She intended on taking the trip, and she thought she was the Queen of Scots, and Katie thought she desired this to be part of her homecoming, her final homecoming, Katie responded.

The author went on to say that seeing the Queen’s casket depart Balmoral yesterday was ‘very touching,’ realizing that she would never return to the spot where she’d cherished holidays as a child.

She thought Balmoral was the one location where the Queen could genuinely leave her crown at the gates and be a different role, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, Katie concluded.

Katie genuinely thinks there was a part of her that understood she wasn’t going to return; Katie believes the Queen wanted to be in Balmoral and pass through there. And the fact that she did so calmly is a blessing in disguise.
