Princes William and Harry reunite at the Festival of Remembrance – in pictures

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been seen publicly with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the first time since 'rift' documentary aired

Ahead of Remembrance Day on Monday, November 11, members of the British royal family gathered at London's Royal Albert Hall for The Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance.

The event, held on Saturday, November 9, was the first time Prince William and Prince Harry have publicly reunited since the airing of documentary Harry And Meghan: An African Journey, which purportedly acknowledged a rift between the siblings.

In the royal box, Queen Elizabeth II was joined by Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall; the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge; the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, as well as Princes Edward and Andrew; Princess Anne; Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his partner, Carrie Symonds.

The concert is held to commemorate those who have lost their lives in conflict. It has been held annually at the Royal Albert Hall since 1923, five years after the end of the First World War.

For the occasion, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a black Jenny Packham dress, accented by a velvet waistband, with an Alexander McQueen clutch, Jimmy Choo shoes, a headband, thought to be from Zara, and a trio of poppies.

The Duchess of Sussex wore a bespoke jacquard Erdem dress, Aquazzura pumps, Jessica McCormack ruby earrings and a poppy pin.

Musicians Leona Lewis, Jeff Goldblum, Louise Dearman and James Blunt performed. A two-minute silence was observed, as poppies fell from the ceiling.

The royals are expected to gather once again on Sunday, November 10, at London's Cenotaph for the national memorial service.
