Prince William has opened up about the touching way he's dealing with grief following the death of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The newly-appointed Prince of Wales was seen thanking mourners who had gathered outside Windsor Castle over the weekend - with a new video discussing his sweet coping method now shared countless times on social media.

Greeting one particular visitor who had brought their dog to pay tribute, William shared details on how his own dog shared with wife Catherine, now the Princess of Wales, is helping him through the grieving process.

In a video posted online William can be seen stroking one mourner's dog, asking, "Aw look, who's this?" Learning that the dog's name is Luna, he replies, "Hello Luna, you're very sweet Luna, how old is she?"

The Prince of Wales then went on to open up about how his own dog, Orla, is supporting him following Her Majesty's passing. He explained, "Dogs at this time are so important. I give my dog a lot of cuddles at the moment. I've got a little Spaniel called Orla. She's very sweet."

Kate Middleton, now Princess of Wales, previously shared another touching insight into four-year-old son Prince Louis' reaction to the Queen's death.

"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.

Our thoughts remain with the Royal Family at this difficult time.
