However, those outside the Palace and within the Royal Parks have been moved to the private gardens at Marlborough House to stop crowds gathering amid the pandemic.

The Royal Parks will continue to move flowers during the period of national mourning.

Following Philip’s death, the public were urged not to lay flowers to prevent crowds.

They were encouraged to make a donation to a charity they support instead.

But that didn’t stop mourners who wanted to pay their respects to the Duke.

What did the tributes say?

According to Hello! magazine, one card read: “Your memory will never fade. Rest in Peace.”

Another said: “We are so sorry for your profound loss Your Majesty’s ‘strength and stay’ will endure in our hearts always.”

It comes after Charles paid tribute to his late father outside his Highgrove home in Gloucestershire.

Your memory will never fade. Rest in Peace.

He told reporters: “As you can imagine, my family and I miss my father enormously.

“He was a much-loved and appreciated figure, and apart from anything else, I can imagine he’d be so deeply touched by the number of other people here and elsewhere around the world in the Commonwealth who also, I think, share our loss and our sorrow.

“…and the touching things that are being said about him.”
