It was a big weekend for the royal family, who stepped out on both Saturday and Sunday to pay their respects to Britain's fallen servicemen and women leading up to Remembrance Sunday.
Saturday's Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance at Royal Albert Hall marked the first time Prince William and Duchess Kate have been seen with Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan in months, and their first public reunion since Harry admitted in a rare interview there have been existing "tensions" with his older brother.
"We’re certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him and as I know he’ll always be there for me," the Duke of Sussex explained in the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, which aired last month. "We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy but I love him dearly. The majority of the stuff is created out of nothing but as brothers it’s just as I said, you have good days, you have bad days."
Royal fans took Saturday's ceremony to look for any sort of clues on the couples' relationship -- and were disappointed that there was no obvious interaction between the foursome-- but they did catch a sweet moment shared between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, which has since gone viral.
THE END: Love how they look at each other ❤️😭 The Sussexes arrived joining the Queen and members of the royal family for the annual Royal Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall. . . It is an annual event put on by the Royal British Legion as part of their poppy appeal. It commemorates those who lost their lives in service of their country. It takes place on the eve of Remembrance Sunday. . . . Note: It is not a live show, it will broadcasted later tonight at 9pm on BBC One. . . . #meghanmarkle #duchessofsussex #royalfamily #britishroyals #royals #princeharry

The affectionate moment was caught on video by BBC and quickly circulated by royal fans.
"It looks real and with love," wrote one fan, while another commented, "I love how they look at one another and how they pay attention to one another no matter where they are! I also love how they walk side by side hand in hand."
Posted another royal fan about the video, "Their 'ways two against the world' look. It’s been this way since day 1. I pray they have this for 100 years together."
On Sunday, the Cambridges and Sussexes again reunited for a Remembrance Sunday Service at the Cenotaph on White Hall alongside other members of the royal family. Prince Harry and William, both veterans, layed wreaths in honor of fallen servicemembers.
Next up for Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan is a six-week break from royal duties, where they will travel to Los Angeles to spend baby Archie's first Thanksgiving with Meghan's mother, Doria. The announcement of their upcoming trip followed months of intense scrutiny on the couple's relationship with Prince William and Duchess Kate, as well as the British tabloid's treatment of Meghan.
In October, the palace announced that Harry would be taking legal action against the Mail and High Court for their publishing of a private letter between Thomas Markle, and Meghan and the illegal interception of voicemails.
"Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences — a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son," he said. "Though we have continued to put on a brave face -- as so many of you can relate to -- I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been," he said last month.
Following their travels to the United States, the family of three will then return to England to spend Christmas with Queen Elizabeth and the rest of the royal family at Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.
