Farewell: Queen's family attend church service in Scotland

In Scotland, members of the royal family attended a prayer service in memory of the Queen on Saturday. They left Balmoral Castle, where Queen Elizabeth II died on Thursday, in the afternoon and went to the nearby Crathie Kirk Church. The Queen herself was a regular guest there for years when she summered at Balmoral.

On the way back, some got out of their cars and greeted those waiting to offer their condolences, including Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

"We got a day with her," Andrew said, according to the British news agency PA, about the grieving period after the death of his mother and thanked the mourners in Balmoral. "Now we begin the process of handing them over."

In attendance were three of their four children: Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward. Her older brother Charles has succeeded his mother to the throne and has been back in London for numerous appointments since Friday. Some of the grandchildren were also in Balmoral: among others, Anne's children, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall, as well as Andrew's children, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

Prince William, the current heir to the throne, also had appointments in London alongside his father. His brother, Prince Harry, also returned to London on Friday. Harry and his wife Meghan, who live in California, were in Europe for charity when the Queen died. According to unconfirmed reports, they wanted to stay in London until the Queen's funeral.
