KATE, the Duchess of Cambridge, will meet Prince Harry for the first time in months on Sunday after she reportedly tried to “stay out of the drama” between her husband Prince William and brother-in-law.
A royal reunion is on the cards as Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and her husband Prince William meet up with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle this weekend. The royal couples have not seen each other for a while and have not met face to face since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex opened up about a range of sensitive subjects during their royal tour to Africa in October.
The Cambridges and Sussexes will join other members of the Royal Family on Saturday for the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall.
On Sunday, they join forces again as they take part in the annual service and wreath laying at the Cenotaph.
Kate, William, Meghan and Harry have not publicly attended an event together since Trooping the Colour in June.
Kate and Harry have become known for being close friends with the Prince referring to the Duchess as “the sister he never had”.

A source has now revealed the Duchess of Cambridge has been “genuinely concerned” after Prince Harry and Meghan gave ITV’s Tom Bradby a revealing interview.
The source told US Weekly Kate “hates to see” Meghan and Harry “so miserable”.
However, the source added, “while Kate’s concerned about Harry and Meghan’s well-being, she tries to stay out of the drama.”
They further said: “[She] hopes William and Harry will eventually heal the rift and let bygones be bygones.”

The past year has been tense for the royal couples’ relationship.
Earlier this year it was speculated Prince William and Prince Harry were not on good terms.
Meghan and Harry split from the Royal Foundation they shared with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to set up their own.
During Meghan and Harry’s royal tour of southern Africa last month, the Duke of Sussex appears to have confirmed the rift with his brother.
He admitted in the ITV documentary, titled Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, that he and William had “good days” and “bad days”.
The Duke of Sussex added “inevitably, stuff happens” as a result of “this family being under the pressure that it’s under”.
He said: “Part of this role and part of this job and this family, being under the pressure that it’s under, stuff happens.
“We are brothers. We will always be brothers. We’re certainly on different paths at the moment, but I’ll always be there for him as I know he will always be there for me.

“We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy, but I love him dearly, and the majority of the stuff is created out of nothing, but you know, as brothers you have good days, you have bad days.”
Meghan on her end said in the documentary that adjusting to royal life had been “hard”.
She said: “When I first met my now-husband my friends were really happy because I was so happy.
“But my British friends said to me, ‘I’m sure he’s great but you shouldn’t do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life’.”
