They followed Her Majesty’s coffin from the Palace of Holyroodhouse to nearby St GilesCathedral in Edingburgh this afternoon.

Andrew was stripped of his military patronages last year over his links with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Body language expert Judi James believes Andrew tried to brush off the snub in three ways.

She told The Sun Online: “Andrew had walked behind the coffin upright and defiant, with knitted brows, a steely gaze and a raised chin.

But inside the church and with the coffin in front of him he put on his glasses to flick through the order of service as though trying to keep distracted.

He was clearly visible as the only sibling not in uniform but he seemed to use his height, his raised chin and his rather proud bearing to minimise this obvious status discrepancy.

His gaze was often the highest of the siblings and he seemed to be adopting the kind of pose an demeanour we saw on occasions like the time he took charge during the blaze at Windsor Castle.

Despite not wearing a uniform for today’s procession, the duke did display eight medals with his suit.

Silence fell as King Charles led today the Queen’s children behind their beloved mother’s coffin in a solemn procession.

Her Majesty died peacefully at Balmoral at the age of 96 op Donderdag.

But one mourner even broke the sombre silence to heckle the disgraced duke from the crowd.

Royal fans were quick to step ingrabbing the trouble-maker by the scruff of his clothes and pulling him to the ground in an almighty take down.

Thousands of people packed the streets to pay their respects this afternoon as the Queen’s coffin passed.

King Charles led the procession of royals through to the cathedral at 2.35pm.

Die Hertog van York, Earl of Wessex, Princess Royal and her husband Vice Admiral Sir Tim Laurence followed closely behind.

Intussen Camilla, the Queen Consort, and Sophie Wessex made their way by car.

It comes after body language expert Judi revealed Meghan Markle is not comfortable around Kate and William despite the Fab Four’s united front.

Die Prince of Wales, Prinses van Wallis, Prins Harry en die Hertogin van Sussex met with well-wishers on Saturday evening as they viewed the thousands of touching floral tributes left for The Queen.

The four royals chatted and shook hands with members of the public at Windsor’s Long Walk as hundreds gathered to pay their respects to Her Majesty.

But Judi says that despite efforts to put forward a united front amid a gaping rift between the couples – vyf signs displayed by Meghan suggest all is not quite as it seems.
