Prince William and Prince Harry’s showstopping reunion to greet mourners outside of Windsor Castle with their wives over the weekend was delayed by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, a royal expert has claimed.
King Charles III’s feuding sons displayed a united front alongside Kate Middleton, Princess of Wales, and Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, outside of Windsor on Saturday.
But it’s reported that the foursome — often referred to as the Fab Four — was due to walk out much earlier but got caught up thanks to the Sussexes.
According to NBC’s royal commentator Daisy McAndrew, Harry and Meghan had to “quickly go and get changed” to meet mourners.
McAndrew claimed Meghan had to have her “hair and make-up” done. She claimed the appearance was “scheduled to be nearly an hour before they came.”
“Interestingly, the reason that the walkabout was so late — it was scheduled to be nearly an hour before they actually came – was because of course Harry and Meghan had to go and get changed,” McAndrew told The Today Show.
“They weren’t wearing the proper formal mourning attire, so they had to quickly go and get changed – I guess, do hair and makeup for Meghan. So that’s why they were late.”
The Sussexes’ reps did not immediately respond to request for comment.
The two princes and their wives strolled together outside Windsor Castle to thank the crowds that had gathered there to offer sympathy and to view the mounds of bouquets and balloons left by well-wishers.
William, who now holds his father’s title of Prince of Wales and his status as heir to the throne, invited his estranged brother to join him in the brief walkabout.
It was the first time the two couples were seen together since Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in June.
