On Monday evening, King Charles III, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward came together to conduct the Vigil of the Princes as their mother’s coffin laid in state at St. Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh, Scotland. The siblings stepped out beside their mother’s casket, draped in the Royal Standard of Scotland and topped with a floral wreath and the Crown of Scotland.

For about 10 minutes, the royals joined the Royal Company of Archers, who will guard the Queen’s casket around the clock during its time in St. Giles, for a symbolic stand of guard as members of the public paid their respects. King Charles, sporting a Scottish kilt, took a spot of significance at the head of the coffin.

Charles’ wife Queen Camilla and Edward’s wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex sat nearby during the vigil.

The rare ritual has been performed only twice before in British history, first for the funerary processions for the Queen’s grandfather, King George V, in 1936, and again during the Queen Mother’s funeral events in 2002, according to The Independent.
