Watch: Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and Prince Edward seen for first time since Queen's death
Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and Prince Edward have been seen for the first time since the Queen’s death was announced.
The siblings were pictured at Balmoral on Saturday while attending a church service to honour Her Majesty.
Footage showed the Royal Family looking at tributes left for their mother as they comforted each other.
The service for the late Queen took place at the parish church Crathie Kirk in the nearby village of Crathie.
Shortly after the service finished at about 2.30pm, the family began a sombre walk across the bridge over the River Dee towards Balmoral Castle.
The Duke of York, flanked by his daughters Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, thanked well-wishers for lining the route.
He was seen cuddling Eugenie as she wiped away tears, while Princess Zara and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, were also visibly emotional.
On Thursday, Andrew rushed to his mother’s bedside, joining the King, the Princess Royal, the Earl and Countess of Wessex and Camilla, now Queen.
The Prince of Wales drove Andrew, who sat in the front passenger seat, with Edward and Sophie in the back, to the Queen’s Scottish home after their RAF flight landed in Aberdeen.
With the death of the Queen, the Duke of York’s exile from the working monarchy could be made permanent.
Charles is now the new King and any decision about Andrew, disgraced after paying out millions over a civil sexual assault case, will fall to him.
The decision will most likely be made in consultation with his eldest son and heir, William.
It came as Charles was proclaimed as the new monarch on Saturday morning.
During a poignant and sombre meeting of the Accession Council, Charles spoke movingly about his mother and the grief his family was experiencing.
But he added the “sympathy expressed by so many to my sister and brothers” had been the “greatest consolation”.
Watched by the Queen Consult, William and more than 200 privy counsellors – including six former prime ministers – the King pledged himself to the task now before him and the “heavy responsibilities of Sovereignty”.
The day included a moment of pomp and pageantry with David White, Garter King of Arm, in his colourful regalia and flanked by other Officers of Arms and Sergeants at Arms, reading the proclamation of the new King from a balcony at St James’s Palace.
The new monarch became King the moment his mother died, but an Accession Council must be convened following the death of a Sovereign – usually within 24 hours.
