LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM: Queen Elizabeth II’s death has seen all her family members coming together in the time of grief, especially Prince William and Prince Harry. The two brothers along with their respective wives went to meet and greet royal fans outside the Windsor Castle on Saturday, September 10. They were also seen checking messages and flowers left for the late monarch.

However, this was not the case since the beginning. It has been said that the night when Her Majesty died, King Charles, Prince of Wales and the Duke of Sussex did not have dinner together. The Daily Mail’s Richard Kay was told by an insider that “two dinners were being hosted on the royal estate that night and there was a clear divide: One was for the new king and his heir, the other was for the rest of the family.”

But for the Saturday walkout, William initiated and sent a message to his younger brother inviting him and Meghan Markle. A senior Palace source claimed, “The Prince of Wales invited the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to join him and the Princess of Wales earlier. [William] thought it was an important show of unity for the Queen at an incredibly difficult time for the family.”

Meanwhile, Harry has also released a heartwarming note for his late grandmother. In the statement, the 37-year-old wrote, “In celebrating the life of my grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen - and in mourning her loss - we are all reminded of the guiding compass she was to so many in her commitment to service and duty.”

He continued, “She was globally admired and respected. Her unwavering grace and dignity remained true throughout her life and now her everlasting legacy. Let us echo the words she spoke after the passing of her husband, Prince Philip, words which can bring comfort to all of us now: 'Life, of course, consists of final partings as well as first meetings.'”

“Granny, while this final parting brings us great sadness, I am forever grateful for all of our first meetings - from my earliest childhood memories with you, to meeting you for the first time as my Commander-in-Chief, to the first moment you met my darling wife and hugged your beloved great-grandchildren. I cherish these times shared with you, and the many other special moments in between. You are already sorely missed, not just by us, but by the world over. And as it comes to first meetings, we now honour my father in his new role as King Charles III. Thank you for your commitment to service. Thank you for your sound advice. Thank you for your infectious smile,” the father-of-two added.
