Cape Town – For the first time since what appears to have been charity polo in July – and significant, for the first time since the Duke of Sussex talked about the rift between the brothers – Harry, Meghan, William and Kate reunited at the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday.
Their Royal Highnesses, along with other members of the royal family including Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, accompanied the Queen to honor those who have given their lives in the service of their country.
The event is held annually and started in 1923, according to The Royal Family Instagram account – and this year marks the 75th anniversary of many major battles in 1944, with a special emphasis on cooperation and friendship between the British, Commonwealth and Allied armies, reports The Sussex Royal story.
The Festival of Remembrance is a very important event for the royal family – both Sussex and Cambridge families have been and will continue to meet veterans and their families throughout the week – so a reunion of sorts had been on the card for a while, despite it rumored gulf.
If you missed it, in the ITV documentary about Harry and Meghan's trip to Africa, His Royal Highness spoke candidly when asked about his brother . Prince Harry said: "Most things are created by nothing. As brothers, we have good days and we have bad days."
"Events inevitably happen," he said. "But we are brothers, we will always be brothers."
He admitted: "We are certainly on different paths for the moment, I will always be there for him and as I know he will always be there for me. We do not see each other as much as we used to because we are So busy, but I love him dearly. "
While sitting on separate sides of the Queen at the festival and royal commentators have gone back and forth about William and Kate having reached out to Harry and Meghan after seeing what they have reviewed in the documentary (for the record we think they must have – read more here ) the festival was certainly an opportunity for the fab four to reunite and at least check out each other.
According to E! News Meghan and Harry will take a break from royal duties to spend Thanksgiving in the United States with Meghan's mother. But they will be returning home to the UK for Christmas to celebrate with William, Kate and the Queen – another opportunity to reconnect.
