Queen Elizabeth II’s children were united in grief as they walked behind the coffin of their mother through the streets of Edinburgh. 
The King and his siblings the Duke of York, the Princess Royal and the Earl of Wessex accompanied the coffin on its way to a service of thanksgiving at St Giles’ Cathedral. 
During the procession, a lone heckler shouted abuse at the Duke of York before he was yanked away from the route by mourners and arrested by police. 
Prince Andrew wore a morning suit with medals and decorations as he walked behind the coffin, as Buckingham Palace sources confirmed only working members of the Royal family will be allowed to wear military uniform at the five ceremonial events during the period of mourning. 
This means the Duke of Sussex has been denied the right to wear military uniform at Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, although one exception has been made for the Duke of York, who will be permitted to wear uniform at the final vigil in Westminster Hall.

The Duke of Sussex has paid tribute to the "everlasting grace" and "infectious smile" of his grandmother, saying even in the depths of grief he can "smile knowing that you and grandpa are reunited now, and both together in peace". 
The Duke, who this weekend joined his brother Prince William and their wives to view tributes to the late Queen, called her a "guiding compass" whose own wise words can bring comfort to the grieving public. 
In a written message, in which he also hailed his father, he spoke of his cherished memories of her meeting his "darling wife" and "hugging her beloved great-grandchildren".
