William & Kate's Post About The Royal Baby Turns Heads For A Surprising Reason

Brothers Prince William and Prince Harry have reportedly been at odds since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex bowed out from their royal duties in 2020, leaving the royal family. Things were made worse with Harry and Meghan's interview with Oprah in 2021 when they revealed some pretty shocking perspectives on the royal family. A source told US Weekly, "William and Kate were in total shock after hearing what Meghan and Harry said. What shocked them the most was Meghan's suicidal thoughts and their quotes on a royal family member mentioning Archie's skin color. William and Kate knew about some of their troubles with palace aides, but nothing to this extent."

Meghan and Harry announced the birth of their daughter Lilibet "Lili" Diana Mountbatten-Windsor on Sunday, and with the seemingly ongoing rift between the brothers, it was hard to know how William and Kate might respond to the news. But the response was quick, with a post on Instagram of a recent picture of Harry with Meghan holding Archie and the caption, "We are all delighted by the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili. Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie."

Many see William and Kate as class acts, taking the high road

Commenters chimed in not as much with additional congratulations to the new parents, but with congratulations to William and Kate instead. Most were pleasantly surprised by the couple's public show of support. One wrote, "So happy to see The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge take the high road and acknowledge this." Another said, "The class on these people is outstanding."

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge posted the same message on Twitter, and it got similar responses. One Twitter user wrote, "They always take the high road!" Another said, "Class. Pure and simple." One user chimed in with, "Nothing more beautiful than humility and dignity @KensingtonRoyal . A true prince and princess x x". Another William and Kate fan wrote, "class & maturity level off the charts.... I do not know how the Cambridges do it... Any little one is beyond blessed to have them both as Aunt & Uncle."

Many were just happy to join in on the celebration with plenty of congrats replies on Instagram and Twitter. One user tweeted the happy message, "Mazel tov to all! Welcome to the world Lili! Nothing like a baby to make us all smile!"
