Meghan Markle and Prince Harry reunited with his brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton on Saturday evening at a U.K. Remembrance Day event, marking the first time the two couples have been spotted at the same place in months, and notably since the Duke of Sussex acknowledged in an October documentary that there were tensions between him and his brother.

The couples joined the siblings' grandmother Queen Elizabeth II, father Prince Charles, his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall—who is recovering from a chest infection, and other members of the Royal Family at the Royal Albert Hall for the annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance, which honors the armed forces and victims of war and conflict. The Sussexes and the Cambridges sat with the group in the Royal Box, far away from each other, on opposite sides of the Queen.

Meghan wore a black Erdem Bespoke Rose Brocade dress, paired with Jessica McCormack ruby heart earrings and black suede Aquazurra "Deneuve" pumps, according to Meghan's Mirror. Kate sported a black over-the-knee dress with a bateau neckline and a velvet ribbon tied around her waist, paired with a black beaded and padded Zara headband, the Queen's diamond stud and pearl drop earrings, black velvet Jimmy Choo 'Romy' 100 pump and a black velvet minaudière from Alexander McQueen.

. All wore the traditional poppy remembrance pins on their outfits.

Meghan, Harry, William and Kate are also expected to attend the annual Remembrance Day Service at The Cenotaph in London on Sunday. The couples had also attended last year's events together.

Over the past year, there have been reports of a rift between the royal siblings and their wives, fueled by Harry and Meghan's move from the Kensington Palace complex they shared with the couple, plus their formation of a separate royal household. On the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, Harry was asked if the rift rumors were true.

"Inevitably stuff happens," Harry replied. "But we're brothers, we'll always be brothers. We're certainly on different paths at the moment. I'll always be there for him and as I know, he'll always be there for me. 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 stuff is created out of nothing," he added. "As brothers, we have good days and we have bad days."

In the documentary, Meghan also talked about her struggles with being a new mom amid massive media scrutiny.

Despite tensions between them, Harry and William have occasionally spent time together, including with their wives. In July, the brothers played a charity polo match. Kate brought along her and William's three kids, Prince George, 6, Princess Charlotte, 4, and Prince Louis, 1, and Meghan arrived with her and Harry's baby son Archie Harrison, marking the first time he was spotted in public with his cousins.

In April, Harry reunited with William and Kate at the Royal Family's annual Easter Sunday Service, and the brothers also joined their dad Prince Charles at the premiere of the Netflix series Our Planet at the Natural History Museum in London.
