Buckingham Palace has just released an official photo of King Charles III, Camilla, Queen Consort, Prince William and Kate Middleton at a reception held for Heads of States and official overseas guests on hand for Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.
According to the Palace, the photo was taken Sept. 18 at Buckingham Palace. In the photo, Camilla, Charles, William and Kate are all smiling and wearing black — Camilla and the Princess of Wales in a gown and Charles and the Prince of Wales in a suit and tie.
This is the same reception, by the way, that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had been uninvited from last month. At the time, ET had learned that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were invited to attend the reception for world leaders, but there was an about-face when they were suddenly uninvited. As for the reason for the disinvite, ET learned that the reception was for working royal family members only.
Harry and Meghan being disinvited to the reception had been among the seemingly growing list of signs that there were mixed feelings about how much the royal family wanted Harry and Meghan taking part in the queen’s official funeral plans.
It started with Meghan not invited to join the royal family at Balmoral Castle in Scotland following the queen’s death.
