A very scrutinized look

With this collective public appearance of the two brothers and their wives, the first since March 9, 2020, those previously nicknamed “Fantastic Four” almost stole the show from the new monarch Charles III, proclaimed king a few hours earlier.

A long walkabout in Windsor

The two couples first gathered in front of the bed of bouquets of flowers deposited by the hundreds, at the gates of Windsor Castle, where the monarch lived most of the time in the past two years.

They enjoyed a walkabout, going down the famous “Long Walk”, a long path that crosses the park leading to the castle.

Hope for restoration?

The presence of William and Harry together could be a sign of a reconciliation for the two brothers who have been known to be cold since Harry and Meghan announced in 2020 their withdrawal from the monarchy and moved to California.

A year later, the couple revealed in a shocking interview on American television that Kate made Meghan cry and accused the royal family of racism.

According to a royal source quoted by British media, William decided to put the argument aside by inviting Harry and Meghan to join him and his wife for a walkabout in Windsor.
