The crowd of well-wishers at Balmoral broke out into a round of applause as the royal family waved to them.
Three of the Queen’s four children – the Princess Royal, the Duke of York and Earl of Wessex – joined the Countess of Wessex, Anne’s husband, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence, and the Queen’s grandchildren Peter Phillips, Zara Tindall, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Lady Louise Windsor for a walkabout after attending a prayer service at Crathie Kirk.
The family spent just under 10 minutes intently reading the tributes and admiring the flowers before they returned inside Balmoral Castle.
The Duke of York spoke to well-wishers as he walked past crowds outside Balmoral to see floral tributes left in his mother’s memory.
He said “thank you for coming” as he was greeted by members of the public.
