Hundreds of royal fans in line in Lambeth, south London, applauded as Charles, 73, and William, 40, emerged together.

Many took photos and pressed against the metal barriers, eager to exchange a word with the pair.

The father and son shook hands with those closest and smiled and waved at those in the back.

Several shouted "God Save the King" and "God Save the Prince of Wales" as they passed by.

One person told Wills: "You'll be a brilliant king one day", before he said to another: "It really means a lot that you're here."

And at one point, he warned royal fans "it's very emotional when you get in there" as he prepped them for stepping foot inside the Palace.

One woman offered His Majesty condolences as he held her hand, and another cried out: "I can't believe this."

Dozens bellowed "hip hip hooray" as the duo moved down the pavement, stopping for a few moments with each person.
