Prince Harry and Meghan are understood to have reached out to Prince William and Kate Middleton (opens in new tab) as they marked their 10th wedding anniversary but instead of making a public stand, their wishes were extended privately.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex wanted to let the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge know that they were thinking of them, despite having set up a new life living in LA (opens in new tab) after stepping back (opens in new tab) from the royal family.

Prince Harry, who last saw his brother Prince William when he attended their grandfather Prince Philip's funeral earlier this month, is said to have broken the ice with William (opens in new tab) prior to the trip.

And while pregnant wife Meghan remained at home with their son Archie (opens in new tab), one, and with their second baby on the way, it understood the couple united to send their congratulations to Kate and Wills on this milestone anniversary of their love story (opens in new tab).

A spokesman confirmed to Daily Beast that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex reached out to William, 38, and Kate, 39, privately, although the insider didn't reveal any information of what was in the message sent by Prince Harry and Meghan.
