Seas of flowers framed Royal residences yesterday as thousands turned out to honour the Queen.
Bouquets piled up at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle and Sandringham with well-wishers waiting patiently for hours to leave tributes.
Teary-eyed King Charles III appeared overwhelmed by the scenes outside Buckingham Palace.
He was met by tears from the crowd and joyful shouts of “God Save the King” in The Mall.
He carefully picked out delighted children on his shoulders.
Cries of God Save the King also rang out in Windsor where florists and supermarkets ran out of flowers.
Town crier Chris Brown said: “People here care about the monarchy and the new king.”
