Prince Harry is missing his grandmother.

The Duke of Sussex, 37, connected with the crowd during a surprise walkabout at Windsor Castle Saturday following the death of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth on Thursday. Prince Harry stepped out hand-in-hand with wife Meghan Markle beside brother Prince William and sister-in-law Kate Middleton, where he made an emotional admission about how things already felt different inside the royal residence.

"It's a lonely place up there now without her," Harry told well-wishers, pointing to the castle, in a video shared by The Sun.

"Whichever room she was in, you felt her presence throughout," he added with a smile.

The Queen relocated her home base from Buckingham Palace in London to Windsor Castle when the coronavirus pandemic began in March 2020 and spent most of her final years there.

Prince Harry, Meghan, Prince William and Kate left the gates of Windsor together Saturday to tour the many tributes honouring the late monarch, who died "peacefully" died at age 96 on Thursday.

The outing for the group once known as the "Fab Four" was especially poignant as relations have been strained between the California couple and members of the royal family in recent years.

Kensington Palace says William, 40, invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to join him and Kate, 40, who was recently named Princess of Wales, alongside her husband's new Prince of Wales title.

Another source adds that security was not expecting both couples at the walkabout.

Prince William thought the step out to greet the crowds "was an important show of unity at an incredibly difficult time for the family," a royal source disclosed.

"It's such an extraordinary historical moment and also a deeply personal one for the family that you'd hope and think that all members of the family would unite and support [the King] especially. And perhaps some of those wounds can be healed in the process."
