Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reunited with Prince William and Kate Middleton on Wednesday at the royal family's annual Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace.

The Duke of Sussex drove his wife to the event in a black car. The father-to-be looked dapper in a classic suit and tie, and Meghan dazzled in a repeat Erdem dress with sparkly diamond earrings. The duchess wore her hair down for the event, straying away from her go-to messy bun updo

Meanwhile, the Duke of Cambridge drove his spouse in a separate car. Like his younger brother, William looked smart in a suit and tie. Kate also stunned in a bright pink dress and accessorized her look with pearl drop earrings.

Royal admirers were also quick to spot Prince George and Princess Charlotte in the back seats. Although, Prince Louis was likely too young to attend the event. After all, he is only about 8 months old.

The reunion between Meghan, Harry, Kate and William was a significant one as it took place just a few weeks after rumors started spreading that there was tension between the royal family members. The reports seemed to stem from the November announcement that Harry and Meghan are moving out of Kensington Palace, where William and Kate live, this spring and relocating to Frogmore Cottage.

In addition, The Sun recently reported Meghan and Kate had an argument before the royal wedding in May. The outlet, citing a source, claimed Kate allegedly told Meghan not to berate members of her staff. However, a spokesperson for Kensington Palace told the publication "this never happened."

The four are also expected to spend Christmas together with the Queen.

Sadly, this isn't the only rumored family drama surrounding Meghan. Her father, Thomas Markle, also accused the duchess of ghosting him during a recent interview with Good Morning Britain. Her estranged half-sister, Samantha Markle, then defended her father and took a few shots at Meghan on Twitter.
