Meghan Markle fan in awe at Duchess sweet gesture as she viewed Queen tributes

Meghan Markle's appearance at the impromptu walkabout outside Windsor Castle appears to have won the hearts and minds of royal fans.

While the streets outside the iconic castle were lined with mourners as far as the eye could see, Meghan – the wife of Prince Harry – honed in on one particular well-wisher.

As she collecte flowers and cards, Meghan spotted a fan clearly overcome with emotion.

But it wasn't from the sadness of the Queen's death on Thursday (September 8) at the age of 96.

This young woman was clearly a huge fan of Meghan's.

The woman, who had her hand over her mouth in shock as the former actress stood in front of her, asked: β€œCan I have a hug?”

And Meghan obliged with a huge hug – cue tears from the fan.

Meghan was at the walkabout alongside her husband, and Prince William and his wife The Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton.

Crowds were heard clapping for both couples as they made their way to the castle.

It is the first time the two couples have appeared alongside each other since The Queen died.

The brothers have been thought to have been feuding for the last few years, but it now appears that they have put this aside, having arrived to the gathering together.

While the crowds around the couples seemed to be a mix of all ages, and ranging from solemn to rather cheery, the Prince and Princess of Wales were happy to shake the hands of everyone they came across, as well as accepting multiple bunches of flowers.

One member of the crowd gave Prince William a small Paddington Bear teddy, which he said he would give to his children on return.

And speaking to another person, he could be heard stating how "incredible" it was that "so many people" had turned out to pay respects to his grandmother.

Kate also stopped to take a few selfies with many members of the crowd, too.

Prince Harry and Meghan – the latter specifically – appeared to be striking a more sombre tone with the crowd, stopping to speak to many of them but in a more toned-down manner.

The two couples were followed around by several assistants who were lumbered with the task of carrying the hundreds of bunches of flowers given to them by the respectful crowd members.
