It’s been quite a busy weekend for England’s royal family. After the death of Elizabeth II this Thursday, September 8, tributes rain down and events follow one another. This Saturday, September 10 marked the coronation of Charles III, broadcast on the biggest international channels. A coronation attended by Prince William and Queen Consort Camilla Parker-Bowles, according to tradition.
Harry, on the other hand, was not present as he gave up his royal title during the Megxit in 2020. However, to the amazement of the English people, the two brothers appeared united this Saturday September 10 and both walked along the promenade of Windsor to admire the bouquets of flowers, and other tributes paid to Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, and also to greet the well-wishers, who came in large numbers to bid farewell to Her Majesty the Queen.
Kate and Meghan dressed almost identically
The two brothers were also accompanied by their respective wives, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle. They stood alongside William and Harry and were also able to interact with the people who had made the trip and admire the tributes paid to the queen. In this regard, Kate even confided in a few children by telling them what was the reaction of Prince Louis when he learned of the death of his great-grandmother.
Another detail surprised the supporters who went there and the media around the world: the almost identical outfits of the two young women. Kate and Meghan were dressed in black, of course, but everything matched. Both wore a fitted black dress, although Kate’s was more fitted than Meghan’s. But also black tights and pumps. In addition, the two wives had identical haircuts. Loose, wavy hair, parted in the middle, all in simplicity. Did Kate and Meghan prepare their outfits together, beforehand? Would they have spread the word to dress so similarly? The question has arisen since yesterday.
William and Harry united in this terrible ordeal
Anyway, the images of the two brothers reunited alongside Kate and Meghan gave balm to the hearts of the English, happy to see them finally united. A royal source later said that William personally invited his Harry and his wife to join him and Kate on the walk. The appearance also marked the very first time the two brothers had appeared together since the coronation of their father, Charles III. This is a first appearance for Kate and William as Princess and Prince of Wales.
The attitude and the union of the two brothers seem encouraging for the future. Nobody really likes to know them in the cold, even if nothing has been formalized. Seeing them united and welded following the death of their grandmother brings them all the more closer to the English people and these images knew how to calm things down. This also gives another dimension to the death of the queen, since, by her departure, she will have succeeded in spite of herself in arranging things between her two beloved grandsons.
