Prince William and Kate Middleton got back to work Thursday as the royals continue a period of mourning following the Queen’s funeral.

The late monarch was laid to rest on Monday in an emotional service televised around the world.

The Prince and Princess of Wales, still wearing black to pay tribute to the Queen, headed to the Windsor Guildhall in their first engagement since the funeral to thank volunteers and staff who helped support crowds on the day, the BBC reported.

She responded: “It’s amazing how many people wanted to come and pay their respects.”

“The spotlight was on Windsor and it looked incredible so well done,” the Princess of Wales insisted of how many floral tributes had been left and how they’d been organized.
