Queen would be ‘relieved and proud’ to see ‘feuding’ William and Harry reunited

Princes William and Harry had a rare reunion this weekend as they came together, along with Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, to view tributes laid at Windsor Castle for their grandmother.

The two couples came together to view the flowers that had been laid at the palace and greet mourning royal fans who lined the streets.

This is the first time the distant brothers have been seen together in public since the funeral of their grandfather, Prince Philip, last year – and a royal expert has claimed that the reunion would come as a relief to their late grandmother.

Speaking about the coming-together on Saturday, royal expert Jennie Bond said in The Mirror: “If there is a positive legacy from this saddest of weeks, it is the sight of the Queen’s feuding grandsons William and Harry united, at last, in grief, with their wives at their side.

“The 'Fab Four', as they were once hailed, looked slightly nervous as they made their surprise appearance outside the grounds of Windsor Castle to view the floral tributes and greet the crowds yesterday afternoon.

“It was an olive branch which, it would seem, both Harry and William recognised.

“The path ahead is still strewn with obstacles.

“There is deep mistrust and suspicion about what Harry has written in his memoir, due out this autumn.

“The concern that anything that is said confidentially may subsequently appear in a podcast or broadcast as a result of the Sussexes’ deals with Netflix and Spotify remains as pertinent as ever.

“But last night marked a significant turning point.

“The four of them can at least put on a show of unity when it is needed, they can act with decorum and dignity.

“There is a long way to go. But their grandmother would surely be relieved and proud.”

It was reported yesterday that Prince William personally invited Harry and Meghan to the Windsor walkabout after having a chat with the King.

A spokesperson said it was the newly-appointed Prince of Wales who extended the olive branch to his younger brother ahead of yesterday's visit.

Crowds clapped for both couples as they made their way to the castle and read tributes, while Harry and Meghan were spotted holding hands.

The sweet gesture comes after the Duke of Sussex was pictured leaving Balmoral alone on Friday morning after the death of his grandmother, after Meghan was reportedly denied access at the last moment.

"Tensions were so high and there was no way Meghan could have gone to Balmoral," a palace insider told The New York Post.

“The fact the Sussex camp did say both Harry and Meghan were going — and then quickly retracted that statement — will tell you everything you need to know about the drama behind the scenes."

And King Charles III paid his own tribute to the pair in his inaugural speech as Head of State on Friday (September 9).

He said: "I want also to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas."
