While the real former Fab Four’s relationship may be far from completely cured, page six reports that Prince William, Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had a private dinner together on Tuesday, ahead of the Queen’s funeral next Monday. The royal family had gathered to view Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin at Buckingham Palace that evening, and inside the palace, the family ate together.
The outlet confirmed that William, Kate, Meghan and Harry joined the “intimate gathering”. No additional details about the dinner were shared. It’s the first time the four have spent time together in private that the press finds out this year.
William, Kate, Meghan and Harry attracted media attention for their decision to take a walk together on Saturday in Windsor. It was their first public meeting since March 2020 during Meghan and Harry’s final events as active members of the royal family.
The two couples also appeared one after the other on Wednesday during the Queen’s coffin procession from Buckingham Palace to the Palace of Westminster. They did not interact with each other during the event.
While the walk was a show of unity among the four, it didn’t actually mark a reconciliation. Royal photographer Arthur Edwards spoke in an interview about how William invited Meghan and Harry to join him and Kate more for optics than anything else.
“When the prince [Charles] he said he loved harry and meghan in his speech which rocked me too. Then when Meghan got out of the car, I was in awe,” Edwards said. “But obviously William has to do something about it. He talked to his brother and told her: ‘Let’s make a combined effort here’”.
“They did it because if Meghan had shown up at the funeral on Monday, all the papers would be talking about Meghan and the King doesn’t want that,” Edwards added. “He wants everything about The Queen and nothing else. No distractions. If they will get back together, who knows, there is a big gap between the brothers.”
Meghan recently spoke with The cut about her strained relationship with the royal family (with the exception of the Queen, with whom she and Harry were close). “I think forgiveness is really important,” she said. “It takes a lot more energy to not forgive. But it takes a lot of effort to forgive. I’ve really made an active effort, especially knowing that I can say anything.” She then fell silent and finally said, “I have a lot to say until I don’t. You like that? Sometimes, as they say, the silent part is still part of the song.”
