Prince Harry has revealed that the Queen's home is a "lonely" place without her as he greeted crowds outside Windsor Castle this weekend.

The Duke of Sussex spoke with grieving well-wishers alongside his wife Meghan Markle on Saturday.

In a video obtained by The Sun, the royal father-of-two gave an insight into how things already felt different at Her Majesty's Berkshire residence since her passing on Thursday.

Responding to an offer of condolence, he said: "It is a lonely place up there now without her."

They have been a tradition for royal women since Queen Victoria's reign, when she only appeared in strands of pearls following the death of husband Prince Albert in 1861.

Since the late monarch's passing was announced, the princess has been pictured in the same pair of 18-carat gold baroque pearl earrings from the brand Annoushka.
