Queen Elizabeth II has conducted her first in-person royal duty on Wednesday since the death of Prince Philip, Queen’s husband and the Duke of Edinburgh.
During a private event held at Windsor Castle, the Queen accepted her former royal aide's wand and office insignia, reports BBC.
The Royal Family is observing two weeks of mourning. The Duke’s funeral will take place at Windsor on Saturday.
A royal official said members of the family would continue to undertake engagements appropriate to the circumstances.
Earlier on April 12, the Duke of Cambridge Prince William and the Duke of Sussex Prince Harry paid tribute to their grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh.
Prince Philip died at Windsor Castle on Friday aged 99.
