WINDSOR, ENGLAND: Warring brothers Prince William and Prince Harry accompanied by their wives Catherine Middleton and Meghan Markle respectively, delivered an incredible show of unity while making a rare joint appearance outside Windsor castle on Saturday, September 10, to inspect the floral tributes left by the royal well-wishers to honor Queen Elizabeth II. The reunion of the brothers reportedly came after newly-crowned King Charles III ordered his sons to keep their feud aside and reunite for the sake of their late grandmother.

The audience, who was just expecting to see and greet the newly-appointed Prince and Princess of Wales outside the Windsor castle was left astonished when they saw the Sussexes emerging from a black Audi late in the afternoon. Dubbed the ‘Fab Four’, the two couples, dressed in black spent 40 minutes inspecting the floral tributes and shaking hands with well-wishers. This was the first time in the last two years when Williams and Catherine publicly reunited with Harry and Meghan after they decided to step down from their royal duties and move to their new mansion in California.
