It's been an emotional week for the pair, who were close with Her Majesty, and they made the trip the day after her coffin was laid in state at Westminster Hall. William and Kate looked to be visibly moved as they viewed floral tributes, as well as other gifts, that had been left in the late monarch's honour.

Crowds broke into applause seeing the royal couples together with William, Kate and Meghan shaking hands with members of the public. The Princess of Wales approached a crying child who stopped when she grew nearer.

Sandringham held a special place in the Queen's heart, and she would often travel up to the Norfolk property in order to spend Christmas there, with members of the family also paying a visit.

However, it was also a poignant place for Her Majesty, as both her father, King George VI, and her grandfather, King George V, passed away there.
