Cape Town – There's no feud here – though Meghan and Kate were on two separate balconies for Remembrance Day on Sunday, and pretty much everyone picked up on it, there's a simple reason for the separation.
According to Elle, the royals are grouped according to precedence – so of course, the wife of the future king would stand next to the queen. And because the balcony isn't quite as big as the one at Buckingham Palace where all the royals watch the annual Trooping the Colour, they were separated.
According to HELLO! Magazine, precedence is also the reason the Sussexes and Cambridges sat on either side of the queen for the Festival of Remembrance on Saturday.

Today, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined Her Majesty The Queen and members of @TheRoyalFamily at the National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph to commemorate and honour the men and women who have lost their lives in conflict. As shared at last night’s Festival of Remembrance, this quote embodies the sacrifice of those that serve: • “When you go home, tell them of us and say, for your tomorrow, we gave our today.” • For more details of this week of Remembrance and their Royal Highness’s recognition for those who serve, please see previous posts. #WeWillRememberThem #RemembranceDay Photo © PA
The royals spent the weekend honouring the men and women who'd dedicated their lives to their country – and it was the first time Harry, Meghan, William and Kate were seen together publicly since the royal charity polo in July, and since Prince Harry spoke candidly about his rumoured rift with Prince William.
In the ITV documentary that followed the Sussex Royal Tour of Africa, Harry told Tom Bradby, "The majority of stuff is created out of nothing. As brothers, we have good days, and we have bad days.
"Inevitably, stuff happens. But we're brothers, we'll always be brothers."
He admitted: "We're certainly on different paths at the moment, I'll always be there for him and as I know, he'll 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."
Prince Harry may have been referring to the different paths they've taken work-wise. Earlier in the year, they announced The Royal Foundation – the joint charity established for both The Cambridges and The Sussexes – would become William and Kate's alone, while Harry and Meghan went on to create Sussex Royal The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Nevertheless, while many are convinced the fab four have entirely split, it seems there's a reason behind every royal formation and every appearance. There's no feud here.
