Joining the nation in mourning for the beloved monarch, William is also grieving for the Queen as a grandmother, too. On the social media account that he shares with Kate, he left a touching tribute to the Queen as both a leader and a grandparent.
As part of his touching tribute, William describes how he has "lost a grandmother." He also shares how the Queen "was by my side at my happiest moments. And she was by my side during the saddest days of my life."
Sharing some insight into the loss that The Princess of Wales, Kate, is dealing with, the message reads: "My wife has had twenty years of her guidance and support. My three children have got to spend holidays with her and create memories that will last their whole lives.
The tribute also went on to honour William's father, King Charles III, saying: "I will honour her memory by supporting my father, The King, in every way I can."
The Prince and Princess of Wales also made a visit to Windsor Castle on 10 September to view the tributes left by the public for the Queen. A particularly moving moment saw the couple speak with and hold the hands with members of the public, who had arrived to greet them and mourn the Queen.
The couple where joined by Prince William's brother, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, and his wife; the Duchess of Sussex. The four were seen looking at floral tributes together.
William and Kate have now been granted the titles of the Prince and Princess of Wales following the death of Her Majesty, the Queen.
