In order to understand how fate plays a role it is important to examine how the story begins, when Romeo meets Juliet, and when Romeo fights Tybalt after Tybalt kills Mercutio. Fate plays a major role in the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.
The prologue describes Romeo's and Juliet's fate, which we see come up many times later on in the play. Throughout the play, Romeo and Juliet unwittingly realize they cannot exist in such reality and that a tragic fate awaits them.
In the final act, the deaths of Romeo and Juliet occur in a sequence of compounding stages.

The Prologue does not merely set the scene of Romeo and Juliet, it tells the audience exactly what is going to happen in the play.
