On Saturday, Harry and Meghan reunite with William and Kate at Windsor Castle to pay respects to their late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II seeming to put their personal feud aside.
The four-mile path to the Windsor castle was packed with hundreds of mourners and visitors who craned their necks to see the royals and cheered when they appeared.
Princes William (Prince of Wales) and Prince Harry (Duke of Sussex), Kate Middleton (Princess of Wales) and Meghan (Duchess of Sussex), took their time to read handwritten comments and marvel at the flower bouquets people left for the Queen at a big flower tribute. Harry and Meghan children can now officially be addressed as Prince and Princess.
The siblings have grown apart in recent years, particularly in the wake of Harry and Meghan’s choice to leave the royal family for a life in the United States. But, Harry and Meghan reunite with William and Kate which was a remarkable and startling moment.
William apparently came up with the idea for the Windsor walkabout (and transforming it into a Fab Four event). A royal source told People that the now Prince of Wales thought it “was an important show of unity at an incredibly difficult time for the family.” Kensington Palace says William asked Harry and Meghan to accompany him and Catherine in meeting the public at Windsor.
The 40-year-old couple Kate and William, who just relocated to Windsor, with their children are close to Harry and Meghan’s UK residence, Frogmore Cottage, which is located on the Queen’s Windsor Castle property. Harry, 37, and Meghan, 41, who have moved to California in 2020, are likely to stay in the country until the Queen’s burial on September 19.
