Queen Elizabeth II has returned to royal duties, four days after the death of her husband, Prince Philip.

The royal family is observing two weeks of royal mourning for Philip, who died Friday at the age of 99.

And Princess Eugenie paid tribute to her “dearest Grandpa” and promised to look after “Granny” — the queen.
