Meghan's appearance with Prince Harry at Windsor Castle proved to be a surprise for many. The duo put aside their differences with the royal family which was sparked by the couple's exit from royal life. The reunion of William and Kate with Harry and Meghan marked their first appearance since their last one together at Commonwealth Day on March 9, 2020, just weeks before the Covid lockdown.
 
The foursome took an emotional tour of the tributes paid to the late Queen. They greeted well-wishers for about 40 minutes. In a surprising gesture, they left in the same car, driven by William. According to reports, William extended the Olive branch to Harry by texting him and not on the orders of King Charles III.

Describing the overall tone of the meeting, body language expert Judi James asserted, “There’s no signs of relaxed engagement or even affection here but the fact they are lining up together and communicating again is impressive in itself.”

Judi further said, “It’s an adult approach from the new Prince of Wales and it could have broken a lot of ice in terms of their body language at the funeral and beyond,” as reported by The Daily Mail.
