The Fab Four came together for the first time since the summer for a special event. Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle were all in attendance for Remembrance Day events over the weekend.
It’s also the first time they’ve all been together since Harry and Meghan’s vulnerable revelations in Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.
On Saturday night, the two couples attended the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Both Kate and Meghan looked amazing in their all-black ensembles as they mixed and mingled with the many in attendance, including other members of the royal family.
On Sunday, the Fab Four attended the somber National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph to honor fallen service members.
Both William and Harry were on the ground, placing wreaths. Kate was on a balcony with Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker-Bowles and Queen Elizabeth. Meghan stood on a balcony with Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and Princess Anne’s husband.
Meghan’s separation from the others isn’t a slight, but a piece of royal protocol. On occasions where the Queen is to be supported by two other females, she will always be with Camilla and Kate, who are the next two women in line to be Queen.
William showed another sign of good faith between the couples when he gave them a shout out. It happened while William was honoring the work of volunteers for the text support line Give Us a Shout, which the four launched together earlier this year. “Catherine and I, and Harry and Meghan couldn’t be more proud of what Give Us a Shout has accomplished,” William is quoted as saying in an Instagram post about the event. “We’re hugely proud and hugely grateful to all of you for being part of this.”
As William goes ahead to another royal tour, Harry and Meghan are stepping away from royal duties for the remainder of the year. The couple is reported to be taking 6-month-old Archie Harrison to the United States for his very first Thanksgiving later this month.
