They were joined by Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton as they viewed the floral tributes left to Her Majesty after her tragic death at the age of 96 on Thursday.

Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams told The Sun Online it showed ‘genuine progress’ in the brothers ending their feud.

He said: “It’s a sensational surprise to see them together in Windsor watching the tributes to one of our greatest monarchs.

“It would benefit everyone if we bridged this gap, the Sussexes wouldn’t have a job without their royal status. The royal family has suffered greatly from their attacks, especially on Oprah.

“We thought that even though they lived so close in Windsor, the once inseparable brothers were far apart.”

Mr Fitzwilliams thinks it is ‘very possible’ that Harry will play a more active role in any further arrangements.

He added: “The Queen has always said the Sussexes are ‘much loved members’ of the Royal Family.

“They had to step down and felt publicly bitter.

“King Charles sent his love to them in his moving address. Now we see real progress.

“Will Harry actively participate in the upcoming ceremonies honoring his beloved late grandmother? It seems very possible now.”

William’s official spokesperson confirmed he had invited Harry and Meghan to watch the tributes with him today.

It is understood he thought it was an important show of unity at a difficult time for the family.

The olive branch is also a clear indication that William may be ready to forget about their apparent quarrel.

They were last seen together in public at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.

But it is believed they stood apart and did not recognize each other at a memorial service in St Paul.

It is understood that relations between the once close pair are still at “bottom”.

Harry and Meghan’s exit from royal life is still said to be raw for William – especially after it was revealed his brother was planning a tell-all book.


It comes like…


Royal commentator Adam Helliker told The Sun Online that the two couples getting together could be the “start of something positive” and could end their “soap opera” feud.

He said: “I think watching those crowds, those crowds obviously enjoyed seeing the two boys standing together and their respective wives.

“It was a big surprise considering what happened after all these difficulties over the past two or three years.”

Mr Helliker thinks this could be the start of the ‘fixing things’ pair.

He added: “There was quite a loving look between Meghan and Kate at one point I thought, which bodes very well for the future.

“This could be the start of something positive and really quite wonderful.

“They say that through grief, families are often united.

“We have had the most terrible news that the Queen has passed away and I think most people who are monarchists don’t want this soap opera to go on, it has done enough damage.”

King Charles wished the best for Harry and Meghan and their life ‘abroad’ as he delivered his first address to the nation on Friday.

The monarch, 73, also paid tribute to his “beloved mum” and pledged to lead a life of service.

King Charles III spoke of his two children in the speech, saying he wanted to “express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives overseas”.
