Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Had a Rare Reunion as They Met with Mourners

It looks like the “Fab Four” are back together again.

While it didn't happen under happy circumstances, Prince William, Prince Harry, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle had a rare reunion this afternoon, as they went to meet mourners outside of Windsor Castle following the passing of Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday.

The foursome were dressed in black as they met with crowds outside of the castle and admired the many bouquets of flowers which had been lain along the gates.

In select photos from the appearance, the group was seen greeting the crowds and shaking hands with mourners. Kate Middleton was also seen accepting flowers from a few people in the crowd.

This is the second time this year that we've seen this group together, and the last time was thanks to Queen Elizabeth as well.

Back in June, as the late monarch celebrated her Platinum Jubilee, all four royals were spotted at the Service of Thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Although the group did not sit together back in June, they appeared to be enjoying themselves, as they were captured smiling and laughing. Meanwhile, at this most recent appearance, the energy among the group appeared to be very relaxed and friendly too.

It was clear the quartet was there to honor the memory of Queen Elizabeth, and since her passing, the couples have each shown their love for the late monarch.

Immediately following the announcement, Prince William and Middleton shared a shot of the queen to their joint account. And early this morning, the Prince of Wales shared an emotional letter, where he said, “I knew this day would come, but it will be some time before the reality of life without Grannie will truly feel real. I thank her for the kindness she showed my family and me. And I thank her on behalf of my generation for providing an example of service and dignity in public life that was from a different age, but always relevant to us all.”

Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex also showed their gratitude to the late queen with a special message that was posted to their Archewell site immediately following the news of her death.

As of last Thursday, the couple shut down access to their site, and when you go to it, the only thing that can be seen is a black background with text in the center that reads, “In Loving Memory. Her Majesty. Queen Elizabeth II. 1926-2022.”
