The first date together since the interview, in which Harry and Meghan have talked about the frustration of the soul, shows: The brothers have gone at a distance.
London – Big Ben's toll, cannon shots, and many poppies: British royals, high-ranking politicians, and thousands of other London Sunday participants commemorated the fallen of the two world wars and other conflicts with a moving ceremony.
The 70-year-old heir to the throne, Prince Charles, was the first to plant a wreath of red poppies on the monument known as "Cenotaph" in London's government district. The "Poppies" are the central symbol of the victims of the war on the island. Many Britons wear small red paper flowers on the lapel in November.
Harry confirms distance to William
For a minute of silence at 11 o'clock local time (12 o'clock CET) exceptionally knocked the big bell of Big Ben. The tower is currently being completely restored. The famous carillon can therefore only be heard on a few occasions. Queen Elizabeth II (93) watched the action from a nearby balcony. She seemed deeply moved and wiped a tear from her eyes. At her side were Duchess Camilla (72) and Duchess Kate (37), all dressed in black.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson and princes William (37) and Harry (35) also participated. For formerly inseparable brothers, remembrance Sunday commemorations were the first public appearance since Harry and his wife Meghan (38) had talked about frustration in a television interview. Harry indicated a distance to his big brother. "We are certainly on different paths at the moment." He loves William very much, but "as brothers you have good and bad days," he said.
At a gala on Saturday night at the Royal Albert Hall, William and Kate sat next to the Queen, while Harry and Meghan sat in the background.
The Remembrance Sunday always falls on the second Sunday in November. The actual day of remembrance is the 11th of November – on this day in 1918 the First World War ended.
