    Flowers left at Sandringham

    Floral tributes have been left at the Royal Family's Norfolk estate following news of the Duke of Edinburgh's death.

    Edna Rooke, from King's Lynn, who laid flowers at Sandringham Estate, said the duke had been a "marvellous member of the Royal Family" and "everybody loved him".

    Mrs Rooke, who was with her grandchildren Hemi and Sana, aged nine and eight, said: "For the people of King's Lynn, the Royal Family are very close to their hearts, they're neighbours."

    Janet Hickey, who was with her niece Maria McDonnell, said she felt "very sad".

    "I think the Queen is going to be very, very lost, they've been together a lifetime," she said.

    The west Norfolk residence is where the Royal Family have traditionally spent Christmas and where the duke spent much of his retirement after he stepped down from royal duties in 2017.

    The public has since been asked not to gather or leave tributes at royal residences amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    The 87-year-old said: "It's very sad, I would've loved to have seen him live to 100."

    Members of the Royal Family had spent Christmas at the estate in Sandringham for 32 years until last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
