On Thursday afternoon, as William, 40, returned to Windsor after collecting his children from school, he passed his brother and sister-in-law as they were heading in the opposite direction. The brothers drove past each other but then stopped, reversed, wound down their windows and chatted for a while.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex caught up with the Cambridges this week

The two brothers have had a few opportunities to spend time together while in mourning for their grandmother, the Queen, who passed away just a week before Harry's birthday on Thursday 8 September.  

They put on a united front and stepped out alongside their wives, Princess Kate and Meghan, last Saturday, but HELLO! understands that the Prince of Wales spontaneously asked his brother and his wife to join them in viewing the tributes just an hour before their appearance.
