About half an hour later, Prince Andrew was seen leaving Windsor Castle after visiting the Queen.

The Duke of York waved to the audience as he drove his green Range Rover down a crowded street.

The government has warned people to continue to follow the coronavirus rules following the royal death and not to congregate at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle.

However, hundreds of people have already visited the royal residences.

Edward and Andrew were seen leaving Windsor Castle after gunfire marking Philip’s death began in London, Cardiff, Belfast and Edinburgh at midday.

Cannon shots also occur aboard some Royal Navy ships and in Gibraltar.

The Duke had strong military ties, most notably in the service of the Royal Navy during World War II.

The royal family had previously shared the Queen’s moving tribute on her golden wedding anniversary to Prince Philip.

In a tweet, the Royal Family posted a photo of the couple and the quote from 1997, saying: “He was, quite simply, my strength and stayed all these years, and me, and all of his family, and that and well. other countries owe him a greater debt than he would ever have claimed, or we will never know ”.

A tribe on the remote island of Vanuatu who hailed Prince Philip as a god is expected to mark his death with ritual lamentations and ceremonial dances.

The villagers believed that the Duke of Edinburgh was the reincarnation of an ancient warrior who had left the archipelago to fight a war.

Philip had maintained a 50-year respectful relationship with the tribe before his death on Friday.
