Prince Harry and Meghan Join William and Kate Outside Windsor Castle

The sons of King Charles III and their wives made a rare joint appearance on Saturday outside Windsor Castle, greeting crowds that had gathered to leave flowers and messages remembering Queen Elizabeth II.

William and Catherine, the Prince and Princess of Wales, and Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, walked along large piles of flowers and tributes, studying notes and waving to well-wishers.

The two brothers have had a strained relationship, particularly after Harry and Meghan announced in 2020 that they planned to no longer be working royals and move to the United States. An interview last year with Oprah Winfrey, in which Harry and Meghan indicated that an unnamed member of the royal family had worried about the color of their unborn baby’s skin when Meghan was pregnant with their first child, Archie, caused further upheaval.

They were already in Europe on Thursday for an awards ceremony when the queen’s death was announced. Harry quickly traveled to Balmoral Castle in Scotland to be with his family as the country began mourning the queen.
