On July 1, a statue of Princess Diana will be unveiled at Kensington Palace's gardens in honor of what would have been the late royal's 60th birthday.

And though Prince Harry's latest interview has ruffled even more feathers, a source told Page Six that he will no doubt be flying to the U.K. to attend the event — but tensions are sure to be high.

"No one is going to tell Harry not to come, but how does he face his family?" the source questioned. "Harry’s still coming, we’re told, but how will it all go down? Will he just turn up on the day without having seen them beforehand?"

Another insider spilled to the outlet, "Things between Harry and [Prince] William have been terrible since Megxit, then Harry and Meghan [Markle] gave that nuclear Oprah [Winfrey] interview, and now Harry has spoken out again. It’s just one thing after the other."

Less than a month after Harry reunited with his family, he went on comedian Dax Shepard's podcast and aired out his issues with royal life.

The brood was said to be angry at his claims, as he stated that the institution is like "living in a zoo."

His harsh comments only caused more damage to his relationship with William and their father, Prince Charles.

"There is no doubt the gulf between Harry and Charles had widened considerably. I mean I think if they are not careful it will be very difficult to bridge that divide in future," noted author Tom Quinn. "I can't see how they can do it."

When William and Harry first announced the news of their mother's statue back in 2017, the two were still on good terms.

"It has been twenty years since our mother’s death and the time is right to recognize her positive impact in the UK and around the world with a permanent statue," they said in a joint statement. "Our mother touched so many lives. We hope the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on her life and her legacy."
