A clip of Prince Harry meeting well-wishers following the Queen's death last week has been compared to archive footage of the royal shortly after his mother, Princess Diana's death.

In an emotional clip, shared by TikToker @good_memories3, Harry can be seen collecting flowers from well wishers while greeting members of the public on Saturday evening in Windsor, alongside wife Meghan Markle as well as the Prince and Princess of Wales.

The clip then flashes back to a young Prince Harry, collecting flowers at Kensington Palace shortly after Princess Diana had passed away in 1997. You can watch the clip below:

And a third added: "Just wanna hug him and say sorry."

Meanwhile a fourth commented: "Actually so sad."

Others admitted they were in tears over the footage, with another writing: "The way the tears flew out my eyes."

Following the Queen's death last week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex issued a heartfelt statement.

"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," the statement read.

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

The couple continued: "Let us echo the words she spoke after the passing of her husband, Prince Philip, words which can bring comfort to all of us now: 'Life, of course, consists of final partings as well as first meetings'.

"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."
