The palace flags are flying again at the top of the flagpole, and the royals are moving again: the mourning period for Queen Elizabeth II is now over in the British royal family.
Everyday life resumed for the royal family on Tuesday, including a visit to Wales by Crown Prince William and his wife, Kate.
The period of national mourning already ended a week ago. However, the royal family added an extra week to give the new King Charles III and his children and grandchildren some extra peace and privacy to grieve.
The Queen died on September 8 at the age of 96. Charles, who is still in Scotland, already had a telephone conversation with the new Finance Minister Kwasi Kwarteng on Thursday, who presented his controversial budget plans on Friday.
William and Kate, the Prince and Princess of Wales since the death of the Queen, will travel to Wales on Tuesday. They previously stated that they wanted to visit the region “as soon as possible” and deepen their relationship of trust with the inhabitants.
In June, the couple was also in Wales for the Queen’s 70th anniversary festivities.
