Prince Andrew has been spotted riding along the banks of the River Thames in Windsor today following the period of mourning for the death of the Queen. 

The prince, 62, was seen in riding gear and a blue jumper and tie as he rode near where the Queen was laid to rest following her state funeral on Monday. 

The Queen’s second son returned to public life after the death of Elizabeth II earlier this month, after previously stepping back from royal duties after details of his ties to paedophile Jeffrey Epstein emerged. 

He was briefly allowed to wear his military uniform as he and his siblings stood vigil next to their mother’s coffin as she lay in state in Westminster Hall.

Prince Andrew also greeted mourners at Balmoral shortly after the death of Her Majesty as they gathered outside the castle where the Queen passed away to lay flowers and pay tribute.

Buckingham Palace announced in January that the Prince would be stripped of all his military titles and patronages.

It is understood King Charles was instrumental in influencing the decision. 

Despite his role in the Queen’s mourning and state funeral, Andrew will not return to royal duties.

The King allowed his brother to wear his ceremonial military uniform at the Queen’s vigil as ‘an act of kindness’, according to a palace source. 

Sex abuse victims of Jeffrey Epstein were reported to be ‘frustrated’ by Andrew’s return to public life, with some accusing him of trying to ‘rehabilitate’ his public image.

Following the revelations of Prince Andrew’s connections to Epstein and his disastrous Newsnight interview with Emily Maitlis, he faced a US lawsuit by Virgina Roberts – who now goes by her married name of Guiffre.

As pressure and bad publicity continued to pile on Duke of York over the New York civil sex assault case, it was announced in January 2021 that the Prince would lose his royal patronages so he could fight the allegations as a ‘private citizen’.

Despite vowing to fight Ms Roberts’ allegations directed against him in the civil case filed in New York – and repeatedly protesting his innocence – Andrew agreed to pay £12million to settle the case before it reached a jury.  

Andrew said he would make a ‘substantial donation’ to her charity supporting victims’ rights and also praised her ‘bravery’, saying he had ‘never intended’ to malign her character. 

He last appeared in March during a memorial service to Philip, Duke of Edinburgh who died last year.

The prince arrived with the Queen from Windsor and supported her as she used a walking stick to get to her seat. 

He then helped her back out of the church and into the Royal limousine at the end of the service. 

It was later reported that Prince William and King Charles had raised concerns ‘on more than once occasion’ about the optics of allowing the duke to escort the 96-year-old monarch down to her seat at such a well-publicised event. 

The father and son were ‘absolutely united’ that it was ‘unnecessary’ for him to have the high profile role, according to The Mirror.

But their protests were overruled by The Queen, who made it her ‘wish and final decision’ in choosing for Andrew to have a special role on the occasion.

Yet Andrew was then banned from the Buckingham Palace balcony for Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, an act which royal experts said proved there was ‘no way back’ for the disgraced duke. 

Paying tribute to the Monarch following her death, Prince Andrew said: ‘Mummy, your love for a son, your compassion, your care, your confidence I will treasure forever.’ 

Prince Andrew thanked mourners for their good wishes outside Balmoral Castle, where the Queen passed away earlier this month
