After the funeral, the royal family spent the following seven days after the funeral in mourning which meant that their public appearances were extremely limited.

However, the Prince and Princess made a special visit to Windsor Guildhall to thank operational staff and volunteers for their involvement in the late monarch's committal service, held on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
