Windsor is ‘a lonely place’ without Queen Elizabeth

Prince Harry told a crowd of fans that Windsor Castle was “a lonely place” without his late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

The Duke of Sussex traveled to London this weekend from Balmoral, where he greeted local residents who lined the streets in honor of the long-reigning monarch, who died Thursday at the age of 96.

“[It’s] a lonely place up there now without her,” Harry, 37, told mourners, per The Sun.

“No matter what room she was in, you could feel her presence everywhere.”

The British royal was accompanied by his wife, Meghan Markle, along with his brother, Prince William, and his wife, Kate Middleton.

The foursome reunited outside Windsor Castle on Saturday amid lingering tensions between the famous couples. The rift has reportedly been heated since Harry and Markle, 41, resigned from their royal duties in 2020 and moved to California.

“We are all very grateful – both sides are putting everything aside for the Queen,” the insider told us.

The outing came just days after Vidak For Congress reported that the Duchess of Sussex had not joined her husband as he rushed to Scotland in an attempt to see his grandmother before she died.

Harry came in from an Invictus Games event in Germany on Thursday, arriving just hours after Her Majesty passed away.

Royal expert Nicholas Witchell speculated that Markle was not accompanying her husband because she feared his family would not respond kindly to her presence.

“She may not be welcomed very warmly, to be completely open about it,” the BBC’s royal correspondent theorized.

Harry and William rushed to be with their father – now King Charles III – and Queen Consort Camilla Parker Bowles at Balmoral Castle after the palace confirmed the Queen’s health was rapidly declining.

Meanwhile, Middleton, 40, stayed in England with the children she shares with William – Prince George, 9, Princess Charlotte, 7, and Prince Louis, 4 – on their first day of school.
