An expert lip reader has revealed Prince William’s kind gesture to Prince Harry at Queen Elizabeth II’s committal service after her funeral.
As the brothers took their seats in St George’s Chapel at Windsor, Prince Harry asked his brother: “Shall we go through first?”.
Lip reader Jacqui Press told the Daily Mail the heir to the throne, who was standing at the entrance to the front pew, nodded and replied “yes” to his younger brother.
The Prince of Wales then said to his wife Kate Middleton: “Let them go through first”.
Kate said “OK” as Harry and his wife Meghan Markle walked past her, Prince George and Princess Charlotte to take their seats.
Prince Harry, who lives in California, also shared a touching moment with seven-year-old Charlotte later in the service, giving her a reassuring smile as the two sat side-by-side.
As the service came to an end the royal family stood as the coffin of the UK’s longest-reigning monarch was lowered into the royal vault.
King Charles III who openly cried throughout the day, appeared deeply moved watching the oak coffin as it was lowered.
