Zara Tindall wipes away tears as she’s joined by Royals at Balmoral church service

Zara Tindall was seen wiping away tears as she joined several Royal family members outside Balmoral following a private prayer service at Crathie Kirk for The Queen on Saturday 10 September.

The emotional family spent time reading tributes and admiring flower displays left outside for Her Majesty, who died aged 96 on the 8th of September.

Zara could be seen kneeling down to read some of the messages left for her late grandmother as other family members watched on.

The 41 year old was also seen in tears as the family made their way back to Balmoral following the private prayer service at Crathie Kirk.

Alongside Zara, many of the Queen's other grandchildren were in attendance, such as Peter Phillips, 44, Lady Louise Windsor, 18, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice.

Elsewhere outside Balmoral following the church service, Prince Andrew could be seen comforting his youngest daughter Princess Eugenie as they looked at floral tributes to the late Queen Elizabeth II at Balmoral.

The Duke of York, 62, was joined by Eugenie, 32, and his eldest daughter Princess Beatrice, 34, for a church service and visit to the flowers. Other Royal Family members including Princess Anne, 72, and Prince Edward, 58, also attended.

Princess Eugenie looked tearful as she made her way into the church, with her father placing his arm around her as they walked together.

The Royals all attended the service today dressed in black, and they will not be seen wearing any colour for at least 17 days, until the period of mourning following the Queen's death comes to an end.

The family spent just under 10 minutes intently reading the tributes and admiring the flowers before they returned inside Balmoral Castle.

Prince Andrew thanked people for visiting Balmoral after the death of his mother the Queen, saying: "We’ve been allowed one day, now we start the process of handing her on."

The Earl of Wessex also thanked well-wishers lining the route back to Balmoral Castle, and after hearing that one group had come from Glasgow to show their support, he said: "Thank you very much for coming all that way, we appreciate it."
