Princes William and Harry and their wives Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have put aside their differences to reunite in an extraordinary 40-minute walk to visit the altar of flowers outside Windsor Castle.
In an unexpected show of solidarity, the Prince and Princess of Wales and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, all dressed in black, went to talk to well-wishers and watch flowers from those who came to honour the Queen.
Harry and Meghan walked together hand in hand as the crowd cheered.
The Daily Mail reports that the Prince of Wales invited the Sussexes to join him and the Princess of Wales earlier today.
Omid Scobie, a friend of the Sussexes and a royal correspondent, claimed on Twitter that the invitation was sent out “at the 11th hour”.
“There is no doubt that this is an important moment in the history of the relationship between the two brothers,” Scobee said.
According to reports, this is the first time the couple have been seen together in public since Commonwealth Day on March 9, 2020.
The Windsor public is reportedly delighted to see the couple put aside the differences that have led to the breakdown of the royal family, and to see Prince Harry and Meghan relocate to the US permanently.
A royal fan who has spoken to Harry and Meghan told the Daily Mail: “It’s great to see the two of them together. Maybe they can get back to a normal relationship. As they got closer, there was cuteness in the crowd. Ripple. Hope for a recovery between Harry and his brother. Now it’s time to start. I’m so excited to see the two of them together. So cute.”
The Queen’s death has been a roller coaster ride for Meghan Markle.
According to reports, she initially planned to travel to Scotland with Harry to accompany the Queen.
King Charles then reportedly had a phone conversation with Prince Harry, advising him not to take his wife to Balmoral.
A source told The Sun: “Charles told Harry it was not right or appropriate for Meghan to be at Balmoral at such a sad time.
“It was pointed out to him that Kate was not going and that the numbers really should be limited to the closest family. Charles made it very, very clear that Meghan would not be welcome.”
In his first speech, however, the new king made an enthusiastic reference to Sussex.
“I want to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas,” King Charles said.
The Sussex children have also received new royal titles. They are now known as HRH Prince Archie of Sussex and HRH Princess Lilibet of Sussex.
