Cheers rang out at the Palace as the King and Queen arrived, along with shouts of “God save the King”.

Many people held their phones aloft to try to catch a glimpse of them as they greeted members of the crowd and look at the tributes left for the Queen as the sun shone.

Colin Hennessy, 52, said: “It’s great to see the King.

You can see he’s very emotional but he was very grateful to everybody here.

“He thanked as many people as he could as he walked by.”
