Poignant moment Prince Harry consoles airport staff after Queen Elizabeth dies

Footage had emerged showing the emotional moment Prince Harry consoled airport staff who were visibly upset over the loss of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II.

The Duke of Sussex was seen boarding a British Airways flight back to London at Aberdeen International Airport after being photographed leaving Balmoral this morning (September 9).

In a video captured of him walking towards the steps of the plane, he was seen wearing a black suit and carrying a shoulder bag as he was accompanied by a woman wearing a hi-vis vest.

The woman looked upset as she appeared to be in a conversation with the 37-year-old son of the new monarch, King Charles III.

At one stage he was seen putting his hand on her shoulder to consol her just seconds before boarding his flight.

The news comes after the Prince has been filmed leaving Balmoral Estate the day after his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II died aged 96.

Harry was pictured being driven out through the main gates of the private royal residence in the Scottish Highlands by his security team.

Omid Scobie, a pal of Meghan and Harry's who co-wrote the authorised biography Finding Freedom, said: "After spending the night at Balmoral, Prince Harry has left this morning to make his way back to Windsor.

"He will, of course, remain in the UK during this time. Later today we can expect to see King Charles and Camilla, Queen Consort travelling to London."

The Queen's grandson first arrived at the estate at around 8pm last night (September 8), following the announcement that the monarch had passed away.

The 37-year-old made his way there when Buckingham Palace had announced doctors had concerns over the Queen's health early yesterday afternoon (September 8).

The Palace released a statement confirming the death of the monarch at 6.30pm last night, in a statement that read: "The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.

"The King and The Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow."

He visited alone as his wife Meghan Markle remained in London.

Reports initially claimed that the couple would be travelling to Scotland to see the Queen together but it was later confirmed that Meghan would potentially join him at a later date.

Meghan and Harry's children Archie and Lilibet have the rights to Prince and Princess titles following the death of the Queen.
