Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, have viewed masses of touching tributes to Elizabeth II in Windsor. The due looked emotional while taking the many messages of well-wishing planted by Britons while the country is in a period of Royal Mourning.
The local Rotary Club was giving children free flowers to lay down outside the gates of Windsor Castle at the weekend, according to ITV.
Other people of all ages also turned up to pay their respects to the monarch of 70 years, who died last Thursday.
One family told ITV Meridian: “[Her Majesty] just lived an incredible life. We just had to pay our respects.
“Just felt like we had to be here. We did come on on the first night, but we are paying our respects again now.”
Another said: “A legacy has come to end.
“I think it is just nice to bring the family to experience a moment in history… our one and only Queen and now the reins are over to King Charles the III.”
Sarah and the Duke of York were married for 10 years between 1986 and 1996.
Following the Queen’s death, the Duchess praised Her Majesty’s “fantastic example of duty and service and steadfastness”.

Despite their divorce, the Duke and Duchess continue to live together at the Royal Lodge.
It has been confirmed that the Queen’s corgis will from now on be looked after by the Royal duo.
Last year, during lockdown, Andrew gifted his mother a corgi named Muick and a dorgi called Fergus.
Of her new pets, Angela Kelly, the Queen’s dresser, said at the time: “I was worried they would get under the Queen’s feet, but they have turned out to be a godsend.
“They are beautiful and great fun and the Queen often takes long walks with them in Home Park.”
A state funeral for Her Majesty will be held on September 19, which will also be a bank holiday.
