The old queen normally leaves with the primary swarm.  She usually leaves before the new queen has emerged

Afterswarms (not the primary swarm) leave with a virgin.  She does NOT mate before they leave.  She does have to have two or three days to "harden" before she's toughed up enough for the trip.
