A sticker promoting the undertaker that was used to carry the Queen’s coffin mysteriously vanished in the middle of the journey.
A hearse carrying the late Queen Elizabeth II traveled from her estate at Balmoral Castle on Sunday 11 September and onlookers were quick to point out that the words ‘William Purves’ were obstructing the view of the coffin.
The trouble with hiring one from the local firm is that you get advertising. They should have peeled that off. I'm sure William Purves are brilliant and will do marvellously but this isn't done. pic.twitter.com/dhe9jLrjst

The sticker promoted the business chosen by the Lord Chamberlain’s Office to carry the Queen’s coffin across Scotland to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh.
However, many onlookers claimed the advert seemed ‘tasteless’ on the royal hearse.
While the advert was clearly visible at the beginning of the route, it was later removed at some point during the procession.
