Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are leaning on each other to get through the difficult emotions being brought up at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

Today, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex arrived at Westminster Abbey to attend the state funeral of the queen, who died at 96 years old on September 8.

Though the occasion held a stoic and somber tone, Harry and Meghan (the latter of whom was photographed crying after the service) were seen holding hands as they watched the queen’s coffin be carried out of Westminster Abbey.

The couple often engage in subtle PDA during public appearances. Earlier this month, during a joint outing with Prince William and Kate Middleton to greet mourners outside of Windsor Castle, the Sussexes were photographed holding hands and touching each other’s backs in multiple moments.

Harry previously honored his late grandmother by releasing a statement through the website of his and Meghan’s nonprofit, Archewell.

“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. She was globally admired and respected,” he wrote. “Her unwavering grace and dignity remained true throughout her life and now her everlasting legacy.”

He concluded the note with a personal message written directly to his grandmother.

“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,” Harry wrote. “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.”
