Princess Anne makes first visit since funeral as she proves how hard she works – My London

Princess Anne will thank members of the armed forces who worked at her mum, The Queen’s, funeral on Monday (September 19). The Princess Royal is due to visit to Portsmouth Naval Base and St Omer Barracks, Aldershot. She is the Commodore-in-Chief Portsmouth, and will meet members of the Royal Navy who partook in the funeral procession on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Anne’s younger brother, Prince Edward, The Earl of Wessex, will visit those on deployment in Estonia and Germany to recognise their service to their monarch and nation. Fifty-eight-year-old Edward, in his role as Royal Colonel of 2nd Battalion The Rifles and Royal Honorary Colonel of the Royal Wessex Yeomanry, arrived in the Estonian capital on Wednesday (September 21) evening ahead of his visit to Camp Tapa military base.

Upon his arrival he will meet with two Rifles personnel to say thanks for their integral role in our military operations. They will also be thanked for defending The Queen when she was Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces, and their commitment to King Charles III.

Prince Andrew will also be thanking military personnel

Edward will then travel to Paderborn, Germany tomorrow to speak to personnel who have been deployed from the Royal Wessex Yeomanry at the Normandy Barracks. The visit comes as Australia enters into a national day of mourning for The Queen.

Today a memorial service will happen at Parliament House in Canberra. The Firm is continuing its period of mourning for our late sovereign, and it will be observed until seven days after the funeral.

It is believed members of the family will not carry out official engagements, and flags at royal residences will remain at half-mast until 8am on Tuesday – which marks the final day of royal mourning.
