Prince William’s instructions to Kate Middleton, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during joint outing

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined the newly crowned Prince and Princess of Wales on Saturday afternoon for a stroll around Windsor Castle.

Prince William took the initiative during the outing, which was his first under his new role and title. The group spoke for more than 40 minutes to the crowds that had gathered at the royal residence to pay their respects after the Queen passed away earlier this week.

The royal, who was wearing all black, had a somber appearance as he stopped to talk and shake hands with grieving bystanders who were gathered behind a fence lining the Windsor Castle entrance.

When it was time to leave, William told wife Kate, brother Prince Harry, and sister-in-law Meghan Markle to wave goodbye as a group. All four royals were seen receiving flowers, gifts, and hugs from the well-wishers.

They were pictured waving and saying goodbye to the crowds while standing behind a black car that William took it upon himself to drive both into and out of the engagement.

Harry and Meghan were present with William and Kate for the first time since Commonwealth Day on March 9th, 2020, during the walkabout. While speaking to people on opposite sides of the crowd, the royal couples moved apart from one another as they walked.

HELLO! Just an hour before they arrived, the Prince of Wales reportedly asked his brother and his wife to watch the tributes with them.

In the meantime, King Charles III announced in his televised speech on Friday night that he had decided to give William and Kate new titles.

He stated: “William now takes on the Scottish titles that have meant so much to me as my heir. He takes over the duties for the Duchy of Cornwall that I have carried out for more than 50 years as I am succeeded as Duke of Cornwall.

“Today, I’m proud to entitle him Prince of Wales, Tywysog Cymru, a title I’ve had the honor of holding for a significant portion of my life and service.

“I know that with Catherine by his side, our new Prince and Princess of Wales will continue to inspire and guide our national discourse, assisting in elevating the underrepresented to the foreground where critical assistance can be provided.”
