The Princess of Wales has revealed the touching words her youngest son Prince Louis said to her after she told her children about the death of their great-grandmother.

The Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge appeared alongside her husband, Prince William, and Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex yesterday in a rare show of unity as they viewed flowers left for the Queen in Windsor.

In footage shared on TikTok, she could be heard telling a member of the public "the whole nation is having to be brave" following the monarch's death.

She then shared that Prince Louis had told her the Queen is "now with great-grandpa", and said his words were "so sweet" while looking visibly emotional.

Prince Philip died in April 2021, aged 99.

Princess Catherine said the outpouring of support for the royals "shows how special she was to all generations".

In a second clip, shared by the same TikTok user, Prince William can be seen thanking well-wishers for their words of condolence.

New Princess to 'create her own path'

King Charles announced that Prince William and his wife would become the new Prince and Princess of Wales, in a speech the day after the Queen's death.

A royal source has said the Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge would aim to "create her own path" as she takes on the role of Princess of Wales - heavily associated with William's mother.

The royal source said: "The couple are focused on deepening the trust and respect of the people of Wales over time.

"The Prince and Princess of Wales will approach their roles in the modest and humble way they've approached their work previously.

"The new Princess of Wales appreciates the history associated with this role, but will understandably want to look to the future as she creates her own path."

Scotland says goodbye to longest reigning monarch

Well-wishers in Scotland have been saying goodbye to the Queen today as she makes her final journey from Balmoral to Edinburgh.

Draped with the Royal Standard of Scotland and featuring a wreath of flowers on top picked from Balmoral, the oak coffin is travelling from the royal castle, through the Aberdeenshire countryside, to the Palace of Holyroodhouse in the country's capital.

As the hearse left the Balmoral estate in bright sunshine, members of the public lined the road and stood silent to pay their respects, with some mourners throwing flowers at the vehicle as police officers bowed their heads.
