Even though Prince William and Prince Harry spoke at Prince Philip's funeral, it seems like the brothers are still at odds with one another.

So much so, the siblings want to give separate speeches at Princess Diana's statue unveiling in July, a source told The Sun

“They will both move heaven and earth to be there. They commissioned the statue together. It is very important for them," a source told the outlet. “There is, of course, hope the memory of Diana can repair their relationship but that seems a long way off right now."

“The brothers will be physically together for the ceremony but want to make their own personal addresses," the insider added. “You might have thought they’d go for a joint statement and speech but that’s not the case. Each has insisted on preparing their own. It is a big concern that their body language will suggest all is not well and they won’t present a united front.”

This comes after Tom Bradby, the ITV journalist who has interviewed Harry and William over the years, said the brothers' had not been on the same page in quite some time.

"It used to be quite a straightforward thing, right, because they weren't arguing and life was simple," Bradby said. "And then it just slowly descended into something that was difficult — personally and publicly — really over the past year and a half."

The red-headed royal, 36, also explained that things had been tense with his older brother over they years

"I love William to bits. He's my brother. We've been through hell together. But we are on different paths," he said. "The relationship is space. Time heals all things, hopefully."

However, things seemed better after Philip's funeral, but royal expert Katie Nicholl predicted that the two princes still have a long way to go before they make up

"The idea that Harry's suddenly going to come around to William's way of thinking, and vice versa, I think is a way off," she insisted. "I think there do need to be more conversations, there's clearly still a lot of hurt, a lot of resentment, and a degree of mistrust on both parts."
