Prince Harry has left Balmoral alone after a night at the Scottish estate.

The 37-year-old was rushed to be at his grandmother’s bedside yesterday, but arrived after she died.

He was pictured leaving Balmoral shortly after 8:30 this morning in a black Range Rover.

A separate vehicle, thought to be holding its security team, followed through the gates, also rushing past crowds and waiting for the press.

It was pouring rain as the cars disappeared from view and the journey of about 45 minutes to, presumably, Aberdeen Airport began.

Prince Harry had traveled yesterday without his wife Meghan Markle and had flown separately to Scotland to meet Prince William.

The couple canceled their performance at the WellChild Awards ceremony in London.
