Will & Kate, Harry & Meghan reunite in first public event in months for Remembrance festival

USA Today Entertainment 4 days ago

In the wake of alleged rifts between Prince William and Prince Harry, and their respective wives, Duchess Kate of Cambridge and Duchess Meghan of Sussex, the four royals have reunited in public.

The royal family gathered Saturday for the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at Royal Albert Hall, where all were dressed in somber colors for the occasion, which commemorates those who have lost their lives in conflicts.

Duchess Kate wore a boat-necked navy blue dress with long sleeves. She paired the look with a matching headband, tights and black pumps.

Meghan opted for a long-sleeved black dress with a belt. She wore her hair back in a sleek bun and paired the look with black pumps by Aquazzura.

Both duchesses also wore paper red poppies on their lapels, a tradition of Remembrance month.

The princes were matching in navy blue suits with stripped ties. They also wore poppies on their lapels.

All eyes were on the "reunion" of the two royal couples after tabloid speculation that the two households are feuding.

The last time the Fab Four were seen together was at the annual Trooping the Colour parade in June, where they gathered on the Buckingham Palace balcony to wave at crowds.

Other royals in attendance included Queen Elizabeth II, Charles, Prince of Wales; Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; Prince Andrew, Duke of York; Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex; Sophie, Countess of Wessex and more.

Other guests included British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his partner Carrie Symonds.

Royals fans will also get a glimpse at the couples' demeanor on Sunday morning when they attend the annual Remembrance Day Service at The Cenotaph in London.

November is Remembrance month in Britain, when everyone wears a paper red poppy on their lapel and the royals, led by the queen, preside over ceremonies to honor Britain's war dead.

Earlier this week, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended the 91st Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey, when hundreds of poppy-adorned crosses are planted on the grounds.

This was Harry's seventh time at the annual ceremony and the first time for Meghan. (Harry's stepmother, Duchess Camilla of Cornwall, who is patron of the Poppy Factory that organizes the event, was supposed to attend with them but canceled due to illness.)

Meghan wore a midnight blue alpaca coat by Sentaler, black knee-high boots and a dark blue Philip Treacy hat.
