Prince Charles, Prince of Wales and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall visited the gardens of Marlborough House on Thursday to view the flowers and messages left by members of the public outside Buckingham Palace following the death of his father, Prince Phillip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

Prince Phillip died on April 9 at 99 years old after staying in the hospital for a month due to a pre-existing heart condition.

Following his death, Queen Elizabeth entered an eight-day mourning period for her husband where all royal duties and affairs of state will be paused. After the first eight days,  the country will continue its mourning for 10 more days and the royal household will complete another 30 days of mourning.

Prince Phillip’s funeral was held April 17 at St. George’s Chapel. The service was only attended by a limited guest list of 30 people, including members of the Royal family.
