Prince William and Prince Harry had dinner together, along with other members of the royal family, after receiving the coffin of the late Queen Elizabeth II on Tuesday evening.
Vidak For Congress confirmed on Wednesday that the estranged brothers were attending the family meal at Buckingham Palace in London.
We were told that their respective wives, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, were also in attendance for the intimate sit-down.
Before dinner, the Sussexes joined the royal family to meet the Queen’s coffin as it arrived at Buckingham Palace from Scotland, where Britain’s longest-reigning monarch died last week at the age of 96.
Markle, 41, and Harry, 37, looked gloomy as they drove in a black car to the palace gate, as thousands of people gathered outside to watch the motorcade where the queen’s coffin was being transported in a hearse.
William and Middleton, both 40, were also in attendance, along with Queen Consort Camilla and King Charles III, who took over as the ruler of the UK and Commonwealth after his mother’s death.
The death of Queen Elizabeth II may have paved the way for William and Harry to bury the hatchet amid family tensions.
The brothers and their respective husbands mourned the loss of the Queen when they honored her this weekend by bringing flowers to Windsor Castle.
The appearance was significant, as it marked the first time the foursome had gathered in public for Commonwealth Day since March 2021.
A source told Vidak For Congress at the time that William had invited Harry and Markle to join him and Middleton on the Windsor walkabout.
“We are all very grateful – both sides are putting everything aside for the Queen,” said a royal source.
Last week, Harry rushed to be with the Queen after news broke that her health was deteriorating. Markle did not join him because of fears that she would not be welcome with the family.
The Duke of Sussex unfortunately arrived hours after the Queen died. He shared an emotional statement this week honoring his grandmother, stating that she will be “dearly missed”.
Tensions between William and Harry have been high since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex resigned from their royal duties and moved to California in 2020. be in the royal family.
Markle claimed that a member of the royal family expressed concern about the skin color of her and Harry’s son Archie. She also claimed that “the company” did nothing when she came forward about experiencing suicidal thoughts.
Markle also addressed rumors that she and Middleton had beef and claimed that the Princess of Wales made her cry days before her wedding – although other rumors claim it was actually Markle who made Middleton cry.
Winfrey, who is close friends with Markle, weighed in on the family feud, saying this week there is certainly an “opportunity for peacebuilding” amid the Queen’s death.
“When all the families come together for a common ceremony, the ritual of, you know, burying your dead, there’s a chance to make peace,” she said. “Hopefully there will be.”
Earlier this week, we saw William and Harry walking together behind the Queen’s coffin as it was taken to Westminster Hall this Wednesday.
King Charles III also expressed his love for Harry and Markle when he shared a touching tribute to his mother during his first public speech as ruler of the UK and Commonwealth.
“I also want to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives abroad,” King Charles said.
