The Prince and Princess of Wales are meeting volunteers and operational staff at Windsor Castle to thank the Queen for their work in their committed service.

William and Kate arrived at the Windsor Guildhall on Thursday for their first royal engagement since the funeral of the late monarch.

The pair will appreciate the volunteers and staff working in the service at St. George’s Chapel on Monday afternoon.

They will also thank the group for supporting the large crowd that had gathered in Windsor in memory of the Queen and for watching the procession of her coffin up the long walk into the palace before the service.

The prince and princess arrived dressed in all black as they continue to observe a period of royal mourning that lasts until Monday.

The engagement is one of their first since William became the clear heir and became known as the Prince of Wales after his grandmother’s death and his father, Charles, became king.

William also inherited the title Duke of Cornwall and is now Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge.

The Earl of Wessex is visiting Estonia and Germany in his role as Royal Colonel of the 2nd Battalion of The Rifles and Royal Honorary Colonel of the Royal Wessex Yeomanry.

The visit includes thanking members of the 2nd Rifles for their service to the Queen at Camp Tapa, Estonia, and soldiers on deployment from the Royal Wessex Yeomenary at Normandy Barracks in Paderborn, Germany.

The Princess Royal is visiting Portsmouth Naval Base to meet Royal Navy personnel taking part in the funeral procession.

Anne will also visit St. Omar Barracks in Aldershot to meet with personnel who played a central role in providing logistical support during the funeral.
