In photos obtained by the Daily Mail, the Duchess of York can be seen in an all-black ensemble as she was joined by her ex-husband, Prince Andrew, to take in the vast flowers left for her former mother-in-law.
Sarah Ferguson didn’t join her daughters, Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice for a walkabout in Balmoral, making Friday the first time the 62-year-old has been seen since Her Majesty died.
The Duchess still lives with her ex-husband at the Grade II-listed residence, Royal Lodge in Windsor, and it has been reported that their property will welcome the monarch’s former Corgis Muick and Sandy and Dorgi Candy.
Sarah paid tribute to Queen Elizabeth on Instagram following her death. Next to a poignant picture showing the monarch posing on the balcony of Buckingham Palace,
Sarah wrote: “I am heartbroken by the passing of Her Majesty the Queen. She leaves behind an extraordinary legacy: the most fantastic example of duty and service and steadfastness, and a constant steadying presence as our head of state for more than 70 years.
“She has given her whole life selflessly to the people of the UK and the Commonwealth.”
Sarah continued: “To me, she was the most incredible mother-in-law and friend. I will always be grateful to her for the generosity she showed me in remaining close to me even after my divorce. I will miss her more than words can express.”
It is believed that Princess Eugenie and Beatrice’s mother will attend the funeral of Her Majesty on Monday.
