Meghan Markle was seen with Kate Middleton, Prince George and Princess Charlotte as the Royal Family put unity before family strife in honor of Queen Elizabeth II.
The Duchess of Sussex and the new Princess of Wales have had their tensions in the past, particularly after Meghan told Oprah Winfrey that Kate made her cry days before her 2018 wedding to Prince Harry during a fitting of bridesmaids.
But any unease was put aside as the pair spent a brief time together in the minutes before Elizabeth’s funeral began at Westminster Abbey on Monday.
Meghan initially shared a car with Prince Harry, but they parted ways as he joined a procession alongside King Charles III, Prince William and other senior royals.
With her husband busy, Meghan first shared a car from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey with Sophie, Countess of Wessex. En route to the Abbey, she was then spotted briefly with Kate and her two eldest children, George and Charlotte, aged 9 and 7.
The Royal Rift has been the backdrop to the lives of all four members of the Royal Family for the past four years. There were rumors that all was not well with the couple’s relationship, once known as the ‘Fab Four’ in the British press. However, those past disagreements have been put on hold and King Charles III has made a concerted effort to include Harry and Meghan in his mother’s grieving process.
The unit was not without problems. Harry was initially prevented from wearing his military uniform, but Charles invited him to wear it at a vigil in honor of Elizabeth on Saturday.
