Prince William Invites Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to Sit With His Family During Queen's Funeral

The Prince of Wales wants to make sure that his younger brother and his wife do not feel left out while settling in for the committal service for their grandmother's funeral at St. George's Chapel.

AceShowbiz - Prince William made such a sweet gesture to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during Queen Elizabeth II's funeral at St. George's Chapel. At the Monday, September 19 ceremony, the Prince of Wales invited his younger brother and his wife to be seated next to him and his family.

William waved to Harry and Meghan while settling in for the committal service. He asked the pair to sit next to him, his wife Kate Middleton and their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, in the front row.

William and Harry managed to put their differences aside in the wake of their grandmother's death. Hours earlier, the siblings walked side-by-side behind the queen's coffin as it made its procession to Westminster Abbey.

On September 10, the two brothers and their respective wives put a united front to greet members of the public outside Windsor Castle. They spent some time looking at the flowers and other tokens of respect left by the public at the royal residence. The foursome subsequently shook hands with well-wishers and received bouquets of flowers from them.

The visit to Windsor Castle marks William and Harry's first joint public appearance since the Queen's death. A royal source told PEOPLE that William considered the walkabout to be "an important show of unity at an incredibly difficult time for the family."

Queen Elizabeth II passed away on September 8. Her coffin has been lowered into the Royal Vault at St. George's Chapel on the Windsor Estate, where it will remain until 7.30 P.M. on Monday when a private burial will take place.

During the committal service, the Dean of Windsor received the Instruments of State - the Imperial State Crown, the Orb and the Sceptre, which had been placed on top of the coffin. King Charles then stepped forward to place The Queen's Company Camp Colour of the Grenadier Guards on top of his mother's coffin.

Lord Chamberlain, meanwhile, broke his wand of office. He placed it on top at the end of the service's final hymn, "Christ Is Made The Sure Foundation".
