THIS is the poignant moment Prince Harry was consoled by a member of airport staff after rushing to be with the Queen in Balmoral last night.
The Duke of Sussex was seen boarding a British Airways flight at Aberdeen International Airport this morning as he made his way back to Windsor.
Harry wore a black suit and carried a shoulder bag as he walked towards the steps of the plane.
He was then accompanied by a woman wearing a hi-vis vest, who he spoke with and at one stage he was seen placing his hand on her shoulder.
The duke left Balmoral Castle this morning after dashing to be by the Queen's side yesterday evening.
His wife Meghan Markle remained in London – like the Duchess of Cambridge – as the news of the Queen's passing sent shockwaves around the world.
