Burying the hatchet? Prince Harry and Prince William were seen talking after Prince Philip's funeral. Following the service, which occurred on Saturday, April 17, the siblings walked side by side, with Kate Middleton beside them.
The two were able to remove their masks and chat while walking.
“These are practical changes rather than sending a signal,” the palace in a statement on Thursday, April 15. “This is a funeral and we are not going to be drawn into perceptions of drama. The arrangements have been agreed and represent Her Majesty’s wishes as well as the personal wishes of The Duke.”
While speaking to Oprah Winfrey in March, Harry revealed where he stands with William, 38.
“I love William to bits. We’ve been through hell together and we have a shared experience but we are on different paths,” the red-headed royal said at the time. “The relationship is space at the moment and time heals all things, hopefully.”
Harry also claimed that William felt "trapped" within the royal family.
After the tell-air aired, the brothers spoke, Gayle King confirmed. "Harry has talked to his brother and he has talked to his father too," she said. "The word I was given was that those conversations were not productive. But they are glad that they have at least started a conversation."
Now, the two — who were supposed to reunite in July — were able to see each other sooner than expected.
“As he did with his mother, Princess Diana, William has once again taken on the role as peacekeeper in the family. He knows his brother, Harry, is a hot-head and has a nasty temper; William’s biggest concern at the moment is avoiding an ugly scene at his grandfather’s funeral. Harry is very unpredictable and still see’s himself as the victim, rather than the person who called his family racists,” a source told The Royal Observer. “The plan is get to through Saturday without causing a scene, if for nothing else but showing the Queen, who is 94, a little respect.”
