Meghan Markle offered a comforting smile to her niece Princess Charlotte after they left Westminster Abbey following the Queen's funeral on Monday morning.
The young princess, 7, attended the funeral of her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth alongside her brother Prince George, 9, and they spent a lot of time with their mother Kate, the Princess of Wales, 40, aunt Meghan, 41, and step-grandmother Camilla, Queen Consort, 75.
At one point, Charlotte whipped around and caught the eye of Meghan standing behind her, who cracked a sweet smile to her niece, which was no doubt reassuring for the youngster.
Charlotte looked adorable in a black button-up coat dress, on which was pinned a small diamond brooch in the shape of a horseshoe, which was a gift from the Queen.

At one point the little girl was seeing getting emotional as she burst into tears and rubbed her eyes, before being comforted by her mum Kate.
Second-in-line to the throne Prince George was also seen in a tender moment during the service as he wiped away tears.
Their reactions prompted a flurry of tweets, with one person writing: "Seeing Prince George and Princess Charlotte so heartbroken has got the tears flowing."
Another wrote: “Little Prince George wiping away tears. [Crying emoji.]"
Prince Harry's wife Meghan has supported her husband of four years at many of the public events of mourning since the Queen passed away aged 96 on 8 September.
Meghan and Harry joined Prince Willian and Kate Middleton on a walkabout of Windsor Castle three days after her death, and it was the first time the four had been pictured together in two years.
The Sussexes officially stepped down as senior members of the royal family in 2020 and they subsequently moved to Montecito, California with their son Archie, now three, before later welcoming daughter, Lilibet Diana.
There has been plenty of discord between them and other members of the royal family since then, after Meghan and Harry levelled accusations at The Firm during a 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Meghan claimed that one senior royal had questioned "how dark" her son Archie's skin might be when he was born, and another claim was that Kate Middleton had made her cry after they got into a row about bridesmaid dresses in the lead up to Meghan's 2018 wedding to Prince Harry.
The family have come together to put on a united front in the wake of the Queen's passing, and Kate and Meghan have been seen together on royal engagements at least three times.
King Charles extended an olive branch to Harry and Meghan as he gave his first address to the nation as King.
During his speech, Charles said: “I want to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas.”
