William and Kate view flowers outside Sandringham

STORY: The royals solemnly viewed the carpet of flowers, notes and balloons near the gates of the private home of the late Queen Elizabeth in Norfolk, eastern England.

Sandringham has been the private home of four generations of British monarchs since 1862.

Queen Elizabeth's body was brought to London on Tuesday from Edinburgh. She died last Thursday in Balmoral Castle, her Scottish summer home, at the age of 96 after 70 years on the throne.
