Owner says Prince Harry comforted her ‘grieving’ dog by petting him in Windsor

Prince Harry shared a moment of mourning with a loving Labrador pup as he and his wife Meghan Markle walked among the well-wishing crowds in Windsor.

Royal fans continue to converge on the Berkshire town to pay their respects following the death of the Queen on Thursday.

And the Duke and Duchess of Sussex both provided and gained solace to and from those lining the streets, with Harry and a well-behaved pooch called Louis taking comfort from each other during a tender embrace between man and dog.

Louis belongs to Sarah Gracie, from Surrey, who uploaded photographs of the prince and her pup in two posts on her Twitter account.

The first tweet was accompanied by four pictures and the post read: "When our little pup Louis met Meghan and Harry as we paid our respects to The Queen. #QueenElizabeth #HarryandMeghan #Windsor."

Underneath, the gushing comments quickly racked up with one poster writing: "What a cutie. Harry and dogs are such a great combi."

Another said: "Dogs know. They know who love them, and they know good people."

And a third added: "Aw I bet they needed that. Dogs make such a difference in stressful times."

The second tweet was posted with one shot of the royal canine encounter, along with the caption: "Meghan coos over a baby in the crowd as Harry bends down to stroke a dog."

It read: "Our darling puppy Louis with Prince Harry. Louis paying his respects as well. #Windsor #HarryandMeghan #QueenElizabeth."

Under that post, one fan of Harry and Louis simply wrote: "Photo of the decade."

A second poster said: "Louis looks like he’s giving Harry some much needed comfort."

A third proclaimed: "I have never seen a better picture of someone who needed a dog's love."

In response to the overwhelming number of comments, Sarah posted: "Thank you everyone for your lovely comments about our precious Louis

"We witnessed a really beautiful moment at such a difficult time for them. Louis had the best day and is at his happiest when he is being cuddled, petted and surrounded by people."

Harry and Meghan are renowned dog lovers and last month adopted a seven-year-old dog named Mamma Mia, who was one of 4,000 beagles that had been rescued from a research plant in the US state of Virginia.

The Sussexes also have three other dogs – another beagle called Guy, a Labrador-German shepherd mix named Bogart and a black Labrador known as Pula.
