Prince Philip: The Queen has returned to royal duties after the death of her husband

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

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

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, has said the family "are rallying round to make sure that we’re there to support her".

The monarchy and the royal households will observe two weeks of mourning, it was announced at the weekend.

Members of the family will continue "to undertake engagements appropriate to the circumstances", a royal official said.
