Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William put on a brave face for the Queen as they stepped out to view floral tributes at the Sandringham Estate. The Princess of Wales shared a tender moment with one grieving woman, being spotted holding her hand as the pair mourned the loss of the monarch. They travelled to the Queen’s former Norfolk home today.

Dressed in black, the Prince and Princess of Wales looked at cards and flowers left in tribute to the Queen by well-wishers at the Norwich Gates.

The estate 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.

Meanwhile, Prince Charles is taking a much-needed break from public duties today.

Queen Elizabeth II died on September 8 at Balmoral Castle aged 96.

Since her death, Prince Charles has undertaken non-stop public duties.

But today he and his wife Camilla, Queen Consort, have been given their first full day off.

The King returned to his Highgrove home yesterday afternoon for a day in private.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex, Sophie and Edward, are in Manchester today to view the Civic Book of Condolence, view floral tributes and light a candle at Manchester Cathedral in memory of Her Majesty The Queen.

Last week, the Prince and Princess of Wales stepped out alongside Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex to look at tributes to the late Queen 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”.
