A Buckingham Palace source says he is in good health and is just “spending the day privately.”

While Kate Middleton opted for an all burgundy outfit, with a halo headband by Jane Taylor, the milliner, the headband has a black felt bow on it and cost £830.

The two wives made jokes and laughed like old friends; their actions would surely put a rest to the feud rumors.

The rumors started to brew when the general assumption that Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex would be moving into an apartment next to William and Kate and their three children, George, Charlotte, and Louis- inside the palace.

But that would not be the situation as Harry and Meghan are going to be moving into the grounds of Frogmore House in Windsor early in the new year ahead of the arrival of their baby in the spring.

It was this decision to move away that created the rumors. Though, the look of their cordial and loving relationship has brushed off rumors of any growing rift between the two royals.

Their decision to move away as obviously nothing to do with their relationship and could simply be the couples personal decision.


Other members of the Royal family were present at the traditional annual service.

They all seem to be stronger and growing in love.
