The Prince and Princess of Wales as well as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have arrived at Windsor Castle to look at floral tributes to the Queen.

This is the first public appearance for the Prince and Princess of Wales as a couple since their titles were bestowed upon them.

Both couples were dressed in all black as they walked along the gates of Windsor Castle, reading tributes left for the Queen.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex held hands as they looked at the tributes, with Harry at one point affectionately putting his hand on Meghan’s back.

They were seen pointing at different tributes and discussing them as members of the crowd waved at them.

A royal source said the new Prince of Wales asked his brother and his wife to join them in viewing the tributes.

It is thought that this is the first time the Prince and Princess of Wales and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have all been in public together since Commonwealth Day in 2020.
