Prince Harry has paid an emotional tribute to his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II after her death at the age of 96 last Thursday.

The Duke of Sussex joined his brother Prince William and their wives in greeting mourners and viewing tributes to the late Queen this weekend.

In a lengthy statement shared on the Sussexes' website on Monday, the Duke cherished the memory he had of his beloved granny meeting his "darling wife" and "hugging her beloved great-grandchildren".

The statement read: "In celebrating the life of my grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen—and in mourning her loss—we are all reminded of the guiding compass she was to so many in her commitment to service and duty.

"She was globally admired and respected. Her unwavering grace and dignity remained true throughout her life and now her everlasting legacy.

“Granny, while this final parting brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all of our first meetings—from my earliest childhood memories with you, to meeting you for the first time as my Commander-in-Chief, to the first moment you met my darling wife and hugged your beloved great-grandchildren.

"I cherish these times shared with you, and the many other special moments in between. You are already sorely missed, not just by us, but by the world over. And as it comes to first meetings, we now honour my father in his new role as King Charles III."

He added: "Thank you for your commitment to service. Thank you for your sound advice. Thank you for your infectious smile. We, too, smile knowing that you and grandpa are reunited now, and both together in peace."

Over the weekend, Prince William - joined by his wife Kate - and Prince Harry - joined by Meghan - met members of the public and thanked them for their well-wishes.

“It is a lonely place up there now without her,” Harry told members of the public, per The Sun. “Every room she was in, we felt her presence throughout,” he added.

Earlier this year, while Harry and Meghan were in the UK for the late monarch's Platinum Jubilee, Queen Elizabeth II met her great-granddaughter Lilibet for the first time.

On Thursday, the Duke flew to Scotland after doctors expressed concern for his grandmother's health, but he only arrived at Balmoral after her passing had been confirmed.
