When Alonso and Prospero meet at the end of the play, as each other (since Prospero dressed up as a magician at first) they forgive each other, finally. Alonso has already renounced what he did to Prospero and restores his Dukedom. When they do meet, Prospero says, "Let us not burden our remembrances with / A heaviness that's gone" (V.i.199-200), urging Alonso to forget the past.
