The Queen returns to royal duties after Prince Philip’s death

UK

The Queen has returned to royal duties four days after the death of the Duke of Edinburgh.

The monarch held her first in-person event since Prince Philip’s death, hosting an audience with the Earl Peel as he formally stood down as Lord Chamberlain on Tuesday.

Prince Andrew said at the weekend that the family “are rallying round to make sure that we’re there to support her”.

The monarchy and the royal households are observing two weeks of mourning but members of the family will continue “to undertake engagements appropriate to the circumstances”, a royal official said.
