The couple immediately cancelled their engagements as the Duke raced to Balmoral on his own by private jet, while other members of his family rushed to be by the Queen's side.

Following the Queen's death, a spokesperson for the couple has since confirmed they will stay in the UK for the period of royal mourning, which finishes seven days after the funeral on September 19.

Their young children Archie, three, and one-year-old Lilibet are currently being looked after by a nanny while their parents remain in the UK.

According to The Telegraph, the Sussexes are trying to work out whether Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland, 66, should fly out with the children, who have spent more than a week apart from their parents.

Devastatingly, Harry did not make it to Balmoral until an hour after the Queen's death had been publicly announced.

Despite the drama that has unfolded between the Sussexes and the rest of the royal family, Harry is said to have been the 'apple of the Queen's eye'.

On Saturday, Harry and his wife joined the new Prince and Princess of Wales for a walkabout outside Windsor Castle, to the surprise of well-wishes who were paying their respects to Queen Elizabeth II.

The group, who Royal fans celebrated reuniting in public for the first time since 2020, spent more than 40 minutes speaking to members of the public, where they received flowers, gifts and hugs.

Cameras picked up Prince Harry sharing a touching moment with royal fans as he confessed to them he now found it very 'lonely' without the Queen.

He also melted the public's hearts with his displays of 'protectiveness' for Meghan.
