Royal feud: Remembrance Day reunion sees Meghan and Harry sat away from Kate and Wills | Royal | News

The Royal Family met on Saturday night for their first public event together since Trooping the Color in June.

The annual Royal British Legion of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall marks this year the 75th anniversary of several crucial battles of 1944: Monte Cassino, Kohima and Imphal, and D-Day with particular emphasis on the role of the Commonwealth and Allied Forces.

The Saturday event also celebrates the 100th anniversary of the Government Communications Headquarters and pays tribute to RFA Mounts Bay which delivered supplies and aid to the Bahamas following the devastating impact of Hurricane Dorian this year.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were seated apart from Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William, and the rest of the Royal Family during Saturday night's event.

In fact, the Sussex couple were separated from the Royal Family by Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his girlfriend Carrie Symonds.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duchess of Cornwall, were left to Queen's and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were to be Queen's right.

Princess Anne, Prince Edward and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Birgitte, Duchess of Gloucester and Sir Tim Lawrence were also sat around the Queen.

But the parents of six-month-old baby Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor were not in the same vicinity as the rest of the Royal Family.

Instead, it appeared the couple were sat to the side and further back than the front row positions given to Kate, William, Charles and Camilla.

Last year, the royal couples were seated in the same area of ​​the royal box, but were on opposite sides of the Queen.

However, this year, the royal couples are completely separate from Queen's designed area, potentially indicating the extent to which tensions between the Royal Family and Meghan and Harry have arisen.

Although, it is possible that couples simply adhered to a seating plan which was decided on their seats ahead of time without their input.

It is believed that the Duke of Cambridge had not seen the ITV documentary ahead of its airing and was in fact "concerned" about his brother in the wake of the documentary.

Speaking in an anchor to Tom Bradby, Harry said: "Part of this role and part of this job and this family being under the pressure that inevitably, you know, stuff happens.

“But look, brothers. We always be brothers.

"We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him and as I know he will always be there for me.

"You know, we'll see each other as much as we used to because we are so busy.

"But, I love him dearly and, you know, most of the stuff is created out of nothing.

"Just as I said, as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days."

On Sunday, the Royal Family is expected to attend the annual service and wreath-laying at the Cenotaph.

The Remembrance event comes after the Queen yesterday helped pitch in as she visited the Royal British Legion Industries.

The Queen is traditionally joined by senior royals for the moving event during which wreaths are placed at the memorial.

This year the Queen, 93, will watch the service from the Foreign Office and Commonwealth building balcony and will likely be joined by Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince William, Kate, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
