Prince William and Kate Middleton Just Dropped a Major Hint That They’re Missing Harry and Meghan

Prince William and Kate Middleton have been taking on royal life without the other half of the “Fab Four” ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle officially stepped down from their roles as senior royals on March 31. The two couples were reportedly not on good terms when the exit happened, but Harry and William have since tried to work things out. Now, William and Kate’s recent photo has some thinking they just gave a loving nod to their in-laws.

The ‘Fab Four’ reportedly was never as close as we all thought

When Meghan and Harry were married, the public became excited that the next generation of royals would be an unstoppable group. For years, it had been William, Kate, and Harry; Meghan joining the family meant the squad was finally complete.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned. There were rumors of a feud between Meghan and Kate as well as reports that Harry and William weren’t getting along. Less than a year after the two wed, Meghan and Harry moved to Frogmore Cottage at Windsor Castle, and before long, they left the family altogether.

Some believe the tension between the couples caused Harry and Meghan to resign

There seem to have been several reasons why Meghan and Harry left the family. Most obviously, Meghan was receiving constant, harsh criticism for every move she made. Plus, Harry wanted Archie to have a more private life than he had growing up, so their son was a priority in deciding whether or not to continue their royal journey.

It’s possible that the tension between the two royal couples played a role as well. Kate and William are adored by the public, and they’re the future of the monarchy. If they weren’t getting along with Harry and Meghan, it likely didn’t make anything easier.

William and Kate just gave a subtle nod in a recent photo

Now that Harry and Meghan have left, there have been reports that William and Kate are missing them. And the couple’s recent Instagram photo might have given the Sussexes a subtle nod, according to Elle. In the photo, William can be seen holding an umbrella over his two children while they walk — it’s the exact same setup as Harry and Meghan’s viral photo at their last-ever royal engagement, where the two were essentially “glowing” in the rain and flashing cameras.

It’s unclear if there was any real connection between the two photos, but experts were certainly comparing the two images in light of news that Harry and William are back on good terms.

William and Harry are reportedly speaking again

Rumor has it that the brothers, who admitted to a rift last year, are finally back on good terms. Distance makes the heart grow fonder, and it’s been reported that Harry is leaning on Prince William as he adjusts to life in Los Angeles. William has been there for Harry many times — when their mother died, when Harry was feeling lost in his early twenties, and now. It just proves that the two will always have love for each other. Could this mean a Fab Four reunion at some point? Maybe not in an official royal capacity, but we certainly hope so.
