The united front comes in the midst of unsubstantiated reports of a rift within the foursome.

Rumours began to swirl after it was announced the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were moving out of Kensington Palace to live in Frogmore House in Windsor.

There were suggestions the Cambridges would spend Christmas Day with the Middleton family in Berkshire, while Harry and Meghan would spend it with the Queen at Sandringham in Norfolk.

Earlier this month, Kensington Palace confirmed the two couples would be celebrating the day together, however.

And it’s proven to be a very strong mark of solidarity.
