Prince William and Prince Harry did not have the opportunity to chat with each other during Queen Elizabeth’s funeral. Since it was a somber event, no one from the royal family was seen talking to each other.
But a lip reader pointed out one key moment when Prince William and Prince Harry were forced to have a brief conversation together with Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle.
Prince Harry Talked To Prince William First At Queen Elizabeth’s Committal Service
While speaking with Daily Mail, oral translator Jacqui Press claimed that Prince Harry asked Prince William if he and his wife should go first during the queen’s committal service.
“Shall we go first?” Prince Harry asked.
“Yes,” Prince William replied.
“Let them go through first,” Prince William told Middleton.
“OK,” Middleton replied.
The encounter was unavoidable because Middleton almost entered the row that she shared with Prince Harry and Markle first. If she did, Prince Harry and Markle would’ve been forced to walk in front of her because they were seated at the farther end of the row.
Prince Harry Shared A Sweet Moment With Princess Charlotte
According to The NY Post, the Sussexes and the Waleses also managed to avoid an awkward encounter during the queen’s committal service. After all, Prince William and Middleton carefully placed Prince George between them and Princess Charlotte sat between her mom and uncle.
Eagle-eyed royal fans also saw the sweet moment shared by Prince Harry and Princess Charlotte. During the committal service, the Duke of Sussex looked at his niece and gave him a small smile. Princess Charlotte returned the gesture by smiling at her uncle, according to People.
Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Sat On The Second Row During Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral
Hours earlier, the Sussexes and the Waleses sat on opposite ends during Queen Elizabeth’s funeral at Westminster Abbey. Prince Harry and Markle sat in the second row beside Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
Prince William and Middleton sat in the first row with their children. Beside them on the row in front of the Sussexes were King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla.
Prince William and Prince Harry also reunited on multiple occasions following the queen’s death. They first made a joint appearance together with their wives to greet mourners outside Balmoral.
And then the brothers reunited for a vigil for the queen, as well as her funeral and committal service. However, it’s unclear if the siblings would reunite again anytime soon. After all, Prince Harry and Markle will return to the United States in the coming days.
