Are Prince Harry and Prince William finally moving past the drama? After the two princes reunited on July 1 for the unveiling of Princess Diana's statue — which is placed in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace — they seemed like they were in good spirits.
“William and Harry spent the morning before the statue unveiling looking through old keepsakes, notes from Diana and bonding,” a source told Us Weekly. “They have absolutely turned a new page in their relationship and have started the healing. Everyone around them was thrilled to see how close they were on the day of the statue unveiling.”
William, 39, and Harry, 36, haven't been on the best of terms in the past year — especially after the latter aired out his dirty laundry on television.
However, the siblings came together to honor their late mother, who would have turned 60 on July 1.
“Today, on what would have been our mother’s 60th birthday, we remember her love, strength and character – qualities that made her a force for good around the world, changing countless lives for the better,” William and Harry said in a statement at the time. “Every day, we wish she were still with us, and our hope is that this statue will be seen forever as a symbol of her life and her legacy.”
Although things seem to be looking up, one source noted that it's not going to be easy for William and Harry to put the past behind them.
“Despite William and Harry coming together this week for the sole cause of commemorating their mother’s legacy, Harry is very much on the outside," the insider told The Mirror. “They put on a show, did what they had to do to make sure the day went without a hitch and said goodbye. It was nothing more, there was nothing to discuss. Things are still far too raw for William and other members of the family to entertain Harry, so it's best to let things lie for the moment.”
Ultimately, those in Harry and William's inner circle are hoping for the best.
“On the one hand you have Diana’s family, as well as members of the royal family, who will be holding on to any crumb of hope that the two brothers will repair their relationship and on the other some definitely feel the damage is done," the source said.
