It recently came to light in Robert Jobson’s book, Our King: Charles III, that Kate Middleton struggled with the Windsor Castle walkabout after Queen Elizabeth II’s death because of the awkward tension with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The author claims that the Princess of Wales found it “one of the hardest things she’s ever had to do.”
Well, Kate isn’t the only one who felt challenged by that moment in time, it’s now being revealed that Meghan was on the same page as her sister-in-law. “That’s the longest they had ever been away from the kids, and then on top of it, knowing what’s being said out there — it was very difficult,” a Sussex insider told People.
The walkabout was the first united front anyone had seen from the royal family after two years of bickering back and forth across the pond. It was Kate who reportedly “came up with the idea” and presented it to her husband. “She didn’t want her or William to have any regrets,” a second source explained. William extended the olive branch to his brother and Meghan, which led to one of the most poignant moments from the funeral events.
Royal watchers won’t see the Fab Four together at King Charles III’s upcoming coronation, though. The Duchess of Sussex is staying at home in California while Harry attends his father’s ceremony. The sense of unity might have lapsed once again, but out of respect for the Queen, the foursome came together when it counted the most.
