Prince Harry and his beloved cousin Zara Tindall’s sweet interaction was captured on camera as the two met during King Charles’s Coronation ceremony. The Duke of Sussex, 38, was accompanied by his other cousins, Princess Beatrice, 34, and Princess Eugenie, 33, as well as their respective husbands, as he entered the service.
Walking into the Abbey in front of the pack, which also consisted of Beatrice’s husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 39, and Eugenie’s Jack Brooksbank, 37, was Zara – daughter of Princess Anne – and her former rugby professional husband Mike Tindall, 44.
Before entering the ceremony however, eagle-eyed viewers from home saw Harry appear to mouth the word “Hi,” at his dear cousin Zara, 41, who turned her back on the rest of the group to greet him, reported OK! magazine.
Zara and her husband are believed to be the few remaining members of the Royal Family that the Prince still has close relations with, having made the controversial decision to “step back” from his royal duties 2020.
Even during the Platinum Jubilee celebrations, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reportedly had a friendly chat with Zara Tindall.
The Duke of Sussex was seated in the third row for the crowning of Charles, 74, and his step-mother Queen Camilla, 75, in Westminster Abbey.
This was his first public appearance alongside royals since releasing his controversial memoir Spare earlier this year.
However, his wife, Meghan Markle, 41, was at home in Montecito celebrating their son Prince Archie’s fifth birthday.
Prince Harry headed straight to Heathrow Airport following the service.
It has since been reported revealed that Harry caught a British Airways flight that arrived at LAX airport at 7.30pm local time (3.30am UK time), allowing him to get home in time to see Archie on his special day.
Around 2,300 guests from around the world attended the ceremony held on Saturday.
