A family united in sorrow. This Monday, September 19, the British royal family gathered in Westminster for the funeral of Elizabeth II, ignoring the tensions that have existed between their members for many months. All of the Windsors were in attendance, gathered around King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla Parker Bowles, including Kate Middleton and Prince William and the Sussexes’ two eldest children, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. After Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral at Westminster Abbey, Her Majesty’s coffin was transported by hearse to Windsor Castle, where she now rests for eternity. Before she was buried alongside Prince Philip, her loved ones attended a funeral service at St George’s Chapel.
During this intimate and family service, Princess Charlotte, seated next to her uncle, shared a sweet moment with Prince Harry, according to Ok Magazine. As the choir sang, the seven-year-old adjusted her hat before looking at her uncle. Meghan Markle’s husband then looked up briefly and met her gaze before smiling at the princess. Taking to Twitter, this tender moment was widely commented on by Crown fans looking for any sign or message, particularly when it came to the Sussexes. ‘Pretty little smiles between Harry and little Charlotte’, ‘Harry and Charlotte share a little moment while the choir sings. So charming”, “Too cute that moment between Harry and Charlotte”, we can read in particular.
Prince William: His hand reached out to his brother Harry
Princess Charlotte was joined by her brother Prince George at Elizabeth II’s funeral. The Prince and Princess of Wales’ two eldest children walked behind their great-grandmother’s coffin as it entered Westminster Abbey. During this possession, George and Charlotte took their places next to their parents and directly in front of the Sussexes. A sign, once again, that the tensions that imploded the siblings have eased following the death of Elizabeth II. Prince William also took a new step towards his brother for Her Majesty’s funeral. As he settled in for the funeral ceremony, he gave Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a nod to come and sit next to him, Kate Middleton and their children.
Prince Harry responded to his eldest with a quick nod before joining them to pay their last respects to his beloved grandmother. A few days ago, Prince William addressed the Duke of Sussex. Before making a notable appearance with his wife in Windsor, he had actually asked Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to join them in greeting the mourners in solidarity. The former Fab Four therefore spent long minutes side by side, the ultimate sign of reconciliation. After a day of intense emotions shared with the British people, members of the Crown found themselves away from the cameras for a private ceremony where Elizabeth II was buried with her husband, sister, father and mother.
