PRINCE Harry and Meghan made an emotional return to the UK for the Queen’s funeral amid rifts with the royal family.
But as a heartbroken nation paid their respects to Her Majesty, the royals formed a united front by mourning together as one – suggesting peace could be at hand.
Harry and his brother William appeared to put their differences aside for their grandmother as they walked side-by-side in the procession behind her coffin.
It comes after the pair’s troubled relationship made headlines around the world after they barely spoke for 2½ years after the Sussexes left for the US.
But as the brothers reunited alongside their spouses in Windsor yesterday after a dramatic reunion, royal fans wondered one thing – could Meghan and Harry rejoin the flock?
Here are five signs the Duke and Duchess and Sussex may be returning to royal life.
UNITED IN Sorrow
Meghan and Harry sat behind King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla at the Queen’s funeral yesterday.
The somber duke and duchess did their part by supporting the royals during the proceedings at Westminster Abbey.
Any differences Harry and his family might have been put to one side as he walked in with his brother Prince William before taking his place just behind his father, the new king.
Meghan was similarly seated just behind Camilla and alongside Princess Beatrice – which could be a sign that cracks may be closing.
Prince William offered his younger brother and Meghan an olive branch in a sweet gesture yesterday as he led them to their seats as they took their seats at St George’s Chapel.
The Prince of Wales led his own family to their seats before pausing before taking his seat.
In a touching moment, he motioned for his brother and sister-in-law to go forward.
And it was perhaps one of the clearest signs that William is ready to make things right with his brother with his latest “olive branch.”
Princes William and Harry and wives Kate and Meghan dramatically reunited on September 10 to pay their respects to the Queen.
The moving tribute saw the brothers put their differences aside as the four inspected flowers outside Windsor Castle.
It was the first time since Commonwealth Day in March 2020 that the couples have been seen in public as a foursome and the brothers could potentially inspire a reunion.
A royal source described the moment as “an important show of unity for the Queen”.
William was seen chatting with Meghan and appeared to lead the quartet by waving goodbye to the crowd.
It also emerged that the elder prince offered the olive branch by instigating the photo opportunity in Windsor, sparking talks of reconciliation.
Meghan and Harry showed their support by staying in the UK the whole time for the funeral – despite not seeing their children for almost three weeks.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were in Britain for a whirlwind charity tour when the Queen tragically passed away.
And the couple then extended their trip to stay in the country for the funeral.
However, they are expected to fly back to California “almost immediately” given their lengthy absence from Archie and Lili, it has been claimed.
APPROPRIATE AND GUIDED
King Charles appeared to offer Harry an olive branch by allowing him to wear his uniform at a poignant vigil at the Queen’s coffin.
Harry was at the foot of the coffin while Prince William took the lead – with both brothers in military uniform at the request of King Charles.
The Duke of Sussex was previously required to wear a morning suit at the ceremonial procession after losing his military titles following the Megxit.
There was initial speculation that Harry – who served on two tours of duty in Afghanistan – would be prevented from wearing military attire,
But he was granted special permission for the period of reflection in a nice gesture by Monarch Charles.
One final reason Meghan and Harry could come in from the cold is their love for his father, King Charles.
In an address to the nation after the Queen’s death, the 73-year-old monarch took time to ensure his son and wife knew they were still on his mind.
He said: “I would also like to express my love for Harry and Meghan as they continue to build their lives abroad.”
