On Saturday, the princes and their spouses gathered in Windsor Castle to pay respects to their late grandmother, appearing to put their royal rift aside.
On Saturday afternoon, Prince William, Prince Harry, and their spouses came together at Windsor Castle to honor their late grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II. It appeared that they had put their egos aside.
The four-mile path to the castle was lined with hundreds of mourners and visitors who craned their necks to see the royals and cheered when they did.
Princes William and Harry, Catherine, Princess of Wales, and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, all took a moment at a large flower tribute to the queen, pausing to read handwritten notes and take in the bouquets that people had left for her during the day.
The brothers had grown distant recently, especially after Harry and Meghan decided to leave the royal family for a life in America. The reunion was a remarkable and striking occasion.
Harry and Meghan made several charges and provided many details about their lives before and after they severed ties with the royal family in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that aired last year. When Meghan was involved with the royal family, she said she had suicidal thoughts.
Harry talked about feeling “very let down” by his father, now King Charles III, who he said had once stopped returning his calls as the pair scaled back their royal responsibilities.
Amid increasing rumors of a growing separation, Harry also stated that his relationship with his brother, William, was about giving “space,” Meghan claimed that she cried before her wedding due to an argument she had with Catherine, also known as Kate.
During that interview, the late queen was warmly praised by both Harry and Meghan, with the Duchess stating that she had “always been good to me.”
A royal source, according to Meghan, “raised concerns and talks about how dark his complexion might be when he’s born” in the months before the birth of her baby Archie, she claimed. It would be “very damaging to them” if she revealed who made the remarks. Therefore she chose not to.
The media tabloids’ treatment of Meghan had drawn a lot of outrage from the newlyweds. Certain outlets’ portrayal of the Los Angeles native’s background, according to several Black women, served as a sign of the ongoing racism in British society.
When Charles spoke to the nation on Friday at a time of national mourning over the passing of his mother, he was met by thunderous cheers gathered in front of Buckingham Palace.
Prince William will now be known as the Prince of Wales, and he said he wanted to “convey my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas.” In his address, he paid tribute to his “darling mom” and nodded to his children
