Members of the royal family in Balmoral, dressed in black, waved to crowds at the gates of the estate in Scotland on Saturday afternoon following their return from a private church service.

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York and the late Queen’s second-oldest son, embraced his daughter Princess Eugenie as she shed a tear after a walkabout with the public.  

The Duke of York thanked members of the public for coming, as the royal family was greeted by people waving, applauding and laying floral tributes in honor of the Queen.

“We’ve been allowed one day, now we start the process of handing her on,” he said, according to the UK’s PA Media news agency. 

Prince Edward, The Earl of Wessex and the late Queen’s youngest son, also thanked well-wishers who came from both near and far away. 

“Thank you very much for coming all that way, we appreciate it,” Prince Edward said when he heard one group had traveled from Glasgow to show their support, PA reported.
