A capped queen can hatch in 1 to 8 days. If it hatched on May 26th you can expect to see eggs on June 9th. ( I normally see eggs in about 2 weeks after queen emerge if the weather is good.) On the other hand if queen emerged on 8th day, June 2nd, you can expect to see eggs on June 16th. So the new queen will start laying any day between June 9th to June 16th. It may be hard to find eggs immediately after queen start laying. I would give another week to be able to see eggs. You should start seeing eggs during June 16th to 23rd period.
