Meghan Markle smiles while greeting Prince William and Kate Middleton with ‘hello’ and small wave as couples meet for first time since Megxit
- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were today seen greeting William and Kate
- They waved at the Cambridges as they prepare to step away from royal duties
- Couples reunited for first time since Harry and Meghan returned from Canada
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were today reunited with Prince William and Kate for the first time in four months, and the last time before they bow out of royal duties and embrace their new life in North America.
The Sussexes and Cambridges came together for the first time since they paid their respects at a Remembrance Day service in November.
Meghan was seen to mouth ‘hi’ and give a small wave to William and Kate, followed by a ‘hello’, as the Cambridges took their seat in the High Altar in the row in front of the Sussexes.
Harry also said ‘hello’ and smiled at his brother.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex chatted as they awaited the arrival of the Queen
Edward partly rose to greet the Cambridges, but Sophie and the Sussexes remained seated.
Meghan later chatted animatedly to Edward as they waited for the Queen to arrive, with Harry joining in the conversation and putting his arm on the back of Meghan’s chair as he did so.
But body language expert Judy James claims the siblings appeared ‘awkward’ with William seemingly failing to greet his younger brother.
She said: ‘As they took their seats Harry threw Kate an open-mouthed smile and ‘hello’ of what looked like genuine pleasure and Meghan raised her brows and smiled in an equally friendly ritual.
‘For William though there was a mouthed ‘hello’ from Meghan but a weak, mouth-closed smile from Harry and no sign that William responded.
‘Prince Edward engaged Harry and Meghan in some animated conversation until Charles and the Queen arrived.
‘Meghan dropped curtsies to both and smiled but Harry looked distinctly awkward as he started fiddling with his programme.’

The two couples were reunited for the first time since Harry and Meghan returned from Canada, where they have been staying with baby Archie.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex walked in ahead of Prince William and Kate Middleton – the first public meeting of the two brothers and their wives since Megxit was announced two months ago – before Prince Charles and Camilla also arrived and the Queen then made an entrance to trumpet fanfare and cheers from crowds outside.
Last year, Harry and Meghan waited alongside William, Kate, Charles and Camilla for the Queen to arrive, before taking part in ‘The Procession of The Queen’.
This year, however, neither couple took part in the procession and simply made their way to their seats after greeting dignitaries.
From March 31, the monarch’s grandson and American former actress Meghan will no longer use their HRH styles as they pursue a new life of personal and financial freedom, mostly in North America.
