On September 8, the world stopped when Buckingham Palace announced the death of Britain’s longest-serving monarch, Queen Elizabeth II. In the days that followed, all sections of the royal family came together to celebrate, honor and bury the beloved queen. However, one of the biggest surprises to come out of the 12-day mourning period was the meeting between Prince William, Prince of Wales and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex.
On September 11, the pair gathered outside Windsor Castle to greet mourners. While Prince Harry and Prince William’s united front came as a surprise to royal enthusiasts, a source told The Times it was intentional. “The Prince of Wales thought it was an important show of unity at an incredibly difficult time for the family,” they explained. A source told ET that William invited Harry and Meghan to the event via text just an hour before. It was the first time they had seen each other since her grandmother’s death.
In the days following their initial meeting, the two were seen together honoring their late grandmother and attending official royal duties. During the Queen’s funeral, fans saw the two brothers engage in conversation, with some seeing the interaction as a sign of reconciliation. However, in a statement to the New York Post, a lip reader revealed that William and Harry were merely exchanging seating order formalities. – Shall we go first? Harry reportedly asked the Prince of Wales, to which William replied: “Yes.” William then told Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, to “let it go [Harry and Meghan] go first, to which Kate said, “Okay.”
