The visit was the couple’s first official engagement since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they were stepping back from royal duties.

William and Catherine didn’t comment on Harry and Meghan’s decision, despite members of crowds that greeted them asking about the announcement.

Since Harry and Meghan made their announcement, Prince William has released a joint statement with his brother denying a media report saying the split was caused by ‘bullying’.

“For brothers who care so deeply about the issues surrounding mental health, the use of inflammatory language in this way is offensive and potentially harmful,” read the statement.

A friend has also revealed Prince William privately expressed his sadness at his brother’s decision, saying, “I’ve put my arm around my brother all our lives and I can’t do that anymore”.
