PRINCE William and Kate Middleton have joined the King and Queen Consort to meet the Governors of the Commonwealth.
The Prince and Princess of Wales spoke to dignitaries from the 14 other countries that have our monarch as head of state.
Princess Anne and the Earl of Wessex also attended the luncheon for the Governors-General of the Commonwealth nations at Buckingham Palace this afternoon.
Prince William spoke to the Governor of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dame Susan Dougan.
Meanwhile, Princess Catherine was photographed chatting with His Excellency Mr Cyril Errol Melchiades Charles, the Governor of St Lucia.
It comes after the couple joined King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla in greeting members of the public queue for the Queen’s reclining earlier today.
Crowds cheered as the monarch and his son arrived to thank people for waiting up to 26 hours to pay their respects to Her Majesty at Westminster Hall.
Hundreds of royal fans queuing in Lambeth, south London, applauded as Charles, 73, and William, 40, appeared together.
Many took photos and pressed against the metal barriers, eager to exchange a word with the couple.
The father and son shook hands with those closest to them 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.
One person told Wills, “You’re going to be a brilliant king someday,” before telling another, “It really means a lot that you’re here.”
And at one point he warned royal fans “it’s very emotional when you walk in there” as he prepared them to enter the palace.
One woman offered her condolences to His Majesty as he held her hand and another exclaimed, “I can’t believe it.”
Dozens roared “hip hip hooray” as the duo walked down the sidewalk, pausing at each person for a few moments.
Several people could be seen calling their friends and relatives to tell them what they had just seen.
There was a sea of phones trying to snap a photo of one of the royals on the impromptu tour, but their security guards encouraged people to “enjoy the moment”.
