Prince William And Prince Harry Keep A Cool Distance From Each Other At Queen Elizabeth’s Funeral

It looks like things haven’t totally cooled off yet. Princes William and Harry and their wives Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle – once dubbed the “fab four” – walked together behind Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin Monday, just as the royal brothers did 25 years ago for their mother Princess Diana. Here’s what you need to know.

But with a tell-all memoir by Harry due out next year and rows reportedly behind the scenes about military uniforms and titles for his and Meghan’s children, the two couples appeared as far apart as ever. The brothers did their duty, walking side by side behind their father King Charles III and other senior members of the royal family as the coffin of their grandmother was taken to Westminster Abbey.

William wore a military uniform. Harry, who has been banned from doing so since abandoning his life as a working royal, was dressed in a morning suit onto which his medals were pinned. As the coffin was borne into the abbey, Harry stood eyes down as other members of the family in military uniform saluted.

William told mourners last week that walking behind his grandmother’s coffin as it was taken to lie in state on Wednesday had brought back memories of his mother’s funeral procession when he was 15. But if that painful shared experience was on their minds, there was no outward acknowledgement of it.

What’s Next For The Royal Family?

At the entrance to the abbey, the siblings, once so close they could finish each other’s sentences, were joined by their wives as well as William and Catherine’s eldest two children Prince George, nine, and Princess Charlotte, seven. Catherine, newly named the Princess of Wales, like William’s mother Diana before her, wore a black ensemble with a wide-brimmed hat and her long hair swept into a low bun. She added a triple-string pearl choker and drop earrings that were part of the queen’s personal jewelry collection.

Meghan wore a black cape and dress and wide-brimmed hat.
