The Duke and Duchess of Nowhere, who left the United Kingdom in 2019 as they gave up their roles as senior working royals for a life away from the spotlight in the United States, on Friday attended their first official event together since stepping back from the Firm.
The two pairs were seated on opposite sides of the aisle.
Charles and Camilla followed but, once seated, they too stayed separate from the Sussexes.
Senior royals have tweeted their birthday wishes to her, with greetings coming from the Twat of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, as well as her aunt and uncle, the Cambridges.
This week would have been the first opportunity for Her Majesty, 96, to meet her great-granddaughter. However, it has not been confirmed if such an encounter has taken place.
As Twat Harold, 37, and MeMe, 40, climbed the steps of St Paul’s Cathedral while smiling and waving at onlookers, the crowds cheered and booed.
The response, an unsurprisingly mixed one, raises the question of just how well-received the two are in Britain slightly over two years after their move to the US and whether or not more visits are likely to follow.
