William’s brief exchange with Harry at Queen’s funeral spotted by lip reader

Royal brothers Prince Harry and Prince William were spotted having a brief exchange at the Queen's funeral despite their long-standing fued.

The Duke of Sussex was in attendance with his wife Meghan Markle for the committal at Windsor Castle on September 19, 2022 following the passing of the monarch on September 8. It was the last time the Sussex couple were seen together in the UK with other members of the royal family as the pair now reside in California with their two children Archie and Lilibet.

Reports prior to the funeral has documented the state of the relationship between the royal brothers and their wives as "frosty" since the bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview. But in the face of their differences, Harry and William were seen to have a brief exchange about the Queen's funeral seating moments before her, according to lip reader Jeremy Freeman.

In a clip from the live broadcast, the Prince of Wales made a gesture to his wife Kate Middleton to give the seats to both Harry and his wife inside St George's Chapel, where the Queen's final journey ended. As they followed the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards and walked past the catafalque, William led his two children — George, nine, and Charlotte, seven – to the front pew to take their seats.

Harry approached the row and, as lip reader Jacqui Press told Daily Mail, was spotted asking William: "Shall we go through first?" The heir to the throne was seen holding up George and Charlotte, before stopping Kate from going to the seats.

Lip-reading expert Jeremy Freeman then told Daily Star what William told his wife to "let them go first." Kate then looked up at Meghan and took a step back, opening up the space to give way for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

William gestured to the group as Kate tapped on Charlotte's back and said: "You go now." During the service, Charles could be seen getting emotional as he stepped out to place the Queen's Company Camp Colour on the coffin.
