Prince Harry and Megan Markle met with Kate and Prince William for the first time in public yesterday since they announced their retirement as senior royalty.
Harry and Megan Markle politely met Prince William and Kate Middleton in Westminster Abbey during a Commonwealth Day.
Spectators commented on Prince William and Kate’s body language.
The expert lip-reader gave some insight into what was said between the former “great four”.
The potential neglect between the two royal brothers was revealed.
When Harry sat down, he said to Megan, “he just said hello to me” saying: “Hello, Harry” that’s it, and Megan smiled…
When William sat down, he turned to Kate and said: “This whole handshake is weird. We’re going to have to put a lot of gel on our hands after that”
William’s comment on the handshake refers to the ban on greeting people because of the coronavirus outbreak.
Megan and Harry were removed from the royal procession during their last royal engagements as senior members.
William and Kate were initially required to participate in the Queen’s Procession, which marks the beginning of Commonwealth service.
However, they were crossed out of the ceremony at the last minute and went straight to their seats in the same way as the less senior members of the royal family.
Royal tradition requires that the eldest members of the royal family sit closer to the altar, so William and Kate were in the front next to the Queen, Prince Charles and Camille and Duchess of Cornwall. Megan and Prince Harry sat in the row behind them, next to Prince Edward and Sophie and Countess of Wessex.
Although Megan and Harry don`t participate in official royal events, they will make some announcements in the next few weeks.
Among the announcements they are expected to make the announcement of their new brand name in the foreseeable future. They can no longer use the word “royal”, after they retire as senior members of the royal family.
