Royal family meets wellwishers outside Balmoral

Members of the Royal family have left Crathie Kirk near Balmoral after a service to meet members of the public.

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, was seen speaking to crowds, as did Princess Anne, the Princess Royal who was walking alongside her husband, Commander Timothy Laurence.

Anne’s children, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall, were seen looking at floral tributes.

Prince Andrew put his glasses on before bending down to read some of the messages that had been left. He then moved across and put his arm around his daughter, Princess Eugenie, who could be seen drying her eyes and hugging her father while looking at the flowers.

“We’ve been allowed one day, now we start the process of handing her on,” Prince Andrew told the public, according to PA Media.

After moments reading the cards and memorials that had been left, the dozen-or-so members of the family paused in the gateway of Balmoral and turned to wave and thank the crowds who had gathered behind barriers.
