Charles and Camilla view Prince Philip tributes at Marlborough House

Charles and Camilla’s tears for Philip: Emotional royal couple are moved as they inspect sea of floral tributes at Marlborough House Gardens where flowers left outside Buckingham Palace by the public have been moved

Prince Charles and Camilla appeared emotional today as they went to see flowers and tributes at Marlborough House laid in tribute to Prince Philip following his death aged 99 six days ago.

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall seemed moved by the scale of the tributes, which also included notes of condolence and drawings by children that had been left in the Royal Parks and Buckingham Palace.

The flowers and condolence messages were moved from outside the palace and the parks to the nearby private gardens at Marlborough House, which is the headquarters of Commonwealth Foundation.

A Clarence House spokesman said: ‘Today, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visited Marlborough House Gardens to view a selection of flowers left by members of the public in memory of The Duke of Edinburgh.

‘The flowers and condolence messages have been moved from outside Buckingham Palace and within the Royal Parks to the private gardens at Marlborough House.

‘The Royal Parks will continue to move the flowers during this period of National Mourning. Marlborough House Gardens was chosen so as not to encourage crowds from gathering outside The Royal Palaces due to Covid-19.’

Marlborough House on Pall Mall in London is the international headquarters of the Commonwealth Secretariat and Commonwealth Foundation, and was built for Sarah Churchill, the first Duchess of Marlborough, and in 1711. 

The building later became a royal palace and has been a residence for dowager queens, princes, dukes and duchesses over the years. It became the Commonwealth’s headquarters in 1959 at the request of the Queen.
