After Queen Elizabeth II died, all eyes were on William, Prince of Wales, and Harry, Duke of Sussex. Rumors of the brothers’ royal rift have swirled for months, and reconciliation has seemed unlikely. However, the Queen’s death may have brought the two together — at least for now. The BBC reported that William and Harry, and their wives Catherine Middleton, Princess of Wales, and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, united to greet mourning crowds in Windsor. All dressed in black, the four walked closely together as if there was never a rift in the first place.
A source told Page Six that William was responsible for initiating the reunion, an admirable move that The Telegraph’s royal expert said would make Queen Elizabeth proud. The expert explains that the Queen lived by the ethos of seeing the best in people, and William chose to follow in her footsteps by reaching out to his brother. Another royal pundit echoed these assertions in The Mirror, saying that the brothers’ reunion was “the greatest gift the Queen could have hoped for.”
