Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been spotted with King Charles inside Buckingham Palace, where they were situated on Tuesday evening to receive the Queen's coffin, after it made its journey from Scotland.

Markle and Prince Harry reportedly travelled from Windsor Castle to join other members of the royal family, including Kate Middleton and Prince William, at Her Majesty's residence in Westminster.

Along with Camilla, Queen's Consort; the Queen's children, including Princess Anne; her niece and nephew Lady Sarah Chatto and David Armstrong-Jones were also present.

It's the first time the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been pictured together with the newly appointed King since the Queen's Platinum Jubilee service in June.

In King Charles' first televised address as the newly appointed monarch, he paid tribute to the Sussexes, saying: 'I want also to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas.'

The Prince and Princess of Wales previously walked around Windsor on Saturday, September 10, where they made a surprise appearance to view flowers and tributes left outside the royal residence for the Queen.

'As my heir William assumes the Scottish titles which have meant so much to me, he succeeds me as Duke of Cornwall and takes on the responsibilities for the Duchy of Cornwall which I have undertaken for more than five decades,' the King said.

He added that his former title Prince Charles was one he'd 'been so privileged to bear'.

The King continued: 'With Catherine beside him, our new Prince and Princess of Wales I know will continue to inspire and lead our national conversations, helping to bring the marshal to the centre ground where vital help can be given.'

Buckingham Palace announced the Queen's funeral will be held at Westminster Abbey at 11am on Monday 19 September.
