The Prince and Princess of Wales will travel to Norfolk today to view flowers for the Queen left by well-wishers at her former home Sandringham’s Norwich Gates. The Norfolk home reportedly held a “special place” in her late husband Prince Philip’s heart, being his favourite place to spend time. Tributes to the Queen, including flowers and cards, have been left at Sandringham, Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and Balmoral since her death.

Prince William and Kate, Princess of Wales, are set to travel to Norfolk today to view flowers for the Queen left by well-wishers at her former home.

Last week, the Prince and Princess of Wales stepped out alongside Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex to look at tributes to Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.

A royal source said William, who has since been made Prince of Wales, “thought it was an important show of unity at an incredibly difficult time for the family.”

The Sussexes’ biographer Omid Scobie tweeted that William had made the decision to invite Harry and Meghan “in the eleventh hour”.

All four royals took bunches of flowers to contribute to the tributes and shook hands with people who had come out to meet them.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said the joint appearance suggests the brothers are making “real progress” in healing their reported rift.

He described Harry and Meghan’s attendance at the walkabout as a “sensational surprise”.

The commentator also claimed it is “very possible” that Harry will take on an “active” role in upcoming arrangements for the Queen’s mourning period.

Queen Elizabeth II died earlier this week, on September 8 at Balmoral Castle aged 96.
