It's been a few days since news broke that Queen Elizabeth II had passed away at the age of 96, and slowly people up and down the country – and throughout the world – are coming to terms with the death of Britain's longest-serving monarch and the new reign of King Charles III.

Since then, the Royal Family has banded together in their grief, with the newly-appointed Prince and Princess of Wales joining the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to greet mourners at Windsor Castle. Yesterday's appearance marked the first time that the foursome have been seen together in public since Her Majesty's death.

And it was during this appearance at Windsor Castle that Kate Middleton revealed how the monarch's passing has impacted some of the youngest royals, in particular, four-year-old Prince Louis.

"Louis said 'at least Grannie is with Great-Grandpa now'," Kate was heard telling a group of children outside Windsor Castle, according to onlooker Banita Ranow. The mourner went on to say that Kate was "welling up" as she spoke to the children who'd gathered to pay their respects.

Ranow also commented on her surprise at seeing the Prince and Princess of Wales reunited with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. "It was really nice," she said, with her mother chiming in to add that the reunion was "fabulous" and "so beautiful to see".

"I felt so emotional and I felt the Queen would have loved it," she went on. "I just hope in the future they remain like that and that the brothers come together, and the families."

The last time that Prince William and Prince Harry were seen together in public was at the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh in April 2021 – although, it is likely the pair saw each other earlier this year, albeit in private, to celebrate Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee.

According to a source who spoke to The Mirror, Prince William – who is now first in line to the throne – personally invited his brother and sister-in-law to join him and Kate on the walkabout in Windsor.

Prince Harry and Meghan are currently in the UK after last week rushing over from Germany – where they were promoting the Invictus Games – when news of the Queen's ill-health came to light.
