Mourners are expected to line the streets to watch a hearse carrying her oak coffin wend its way through Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen and Dundee on the way to Edinburgh.
Here is a timeline of the 180-mile (290-kilometre) journey through Scotland's northeastern and eastern countryside, which will last at least six hours:
- Balmoral, 10:00 am (0900 GMT) -
After the coffin is carried to the hearse by six Balmoral estate gamekeepers, the cortege will head to the nearby town of Ballater, arriving at 10:12 am for officials from the county of Aberdeenshire to pay tribute.
The coffin will be accompanied by The Earl of Dalhousie and the minister of Crathie Kirk, a church she attended when in residence at Balmoral.
- Aberdeen, 11:00 am -
After another tribute by local officials there will be a public viewing at the city's historic Duthie Park.
- Dundee, 14:15 pm -
The cortege will arrive in Dundee on the east coast, Scotland's fourth city. Civic leaders will stand on a raised platform to bid farewell to her.
On the way to Edinburgh it will pass over a road bridge running parallel to the iconic Forth Bridge, which takes trains over the huge Firth of Forth estuary.
- Edinburgh, 16:00 pm -
