Royal commentator Camilla Tominey says the vigil held by King Charles and his siblings was “very emotional.”
The King was joined by Princess Anne, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward at St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh.
“On one hand you’ve got the whole of the world’s media looking in on this really intimate moment of siblings remembering their mother,” she told Today.
“It almost feels slightly intrusive.
“And then you’ve got members of the public filing in in silence. There’s something very British about this.
“In all my time covering the royals I’ve never met anyone who said anything bad about the Queen, and that’s why we’ve seen this transition of affection towards King Charles.”
