William, Harry, Kate and Meghan: The Royals are rarely seen together anymore. Now they performed together again at the Remembrance Festival in London. (Source: Paul Grover / Getty Images)
The Princes Harry and William met on Saturday night at a gala to commemorate the dead of the First World War in London's Royal Albert Hall. The Duchesses Kate and Meghan were also present. The first public meeting after the broadcast of the documentary "Harry and Meghan: An African Journey" was eagerly awaited. Previously, he confessed: "We are certainly on different paths at the moment." He loves William very much, but as brothers you have good days and bad days. Now it was time.
On site were also Queen Elizabeth II, Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla and other members of the British royal family. It struck: Harry and Meghan and William and Kate sat far apart. While William and Kate were sitting in the front row on the balcony in the Royal Albert Hall next to the Queen, Charles and Camilla, Harry and Meghan had to be content with the series behind them.
The royals appear according to their ranking
However, this seating arrangement is not uncommon, as palace employees said, according to British media reports. In 2018, the Fab Four would have taken exactly these places. For example, the royal protocol at such an event provides that the four arrive separately and are not photographed together. The royals appear according to their ranking. As a reminder: Prince William is the number two British throne, Prince Harry ranked sixth.
And here's D-Day veteran William Allen – a remarkable man who celebrates his 100th birthday next month. Meghan hugged and kissed him, leaving a little make-up smudge on his jacket. 'I never wash that!' He said. pic.twitter.com/zQ8iAnX8FO

Overall, the Fab Four did not show any tensions and acted as a unit – as required by the Royal Protocol. They appeared closed at the Remembrance Festival. Only Duchess Meghan had recently made a small faux pas.
When she embraced veteran William Allen at the ceremony, the 99-year-old suddenly had the duchess's powder on the uniform. But he was amused and later told the Daily Mail: "I will never wash it again."
