“William made a brilliant speech saying thank you from him and Harry and how happy they both were with the statue," a source told the Daily Mail. “He mentioned Harry by name.”

It seems like the siblings haven't completely made up yet, though. “The brothers are barely on speaking terms, but it's clear the Princess Di statue has done some good," the insider added.

Over the summer, William, 39, and Harry, 37, attended a statue unveiling for their mother, who would have turned 60 this year.

"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," they said in a statement. "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."

At the time, there was supposed to be a small party celebrating Diana's life, but due to COVID-19 restrictions, it was moved to the fall. This time around, Harry did not attend, which shocked many people.

"It is a great shame they are not coming. The longer they stay away the greater the rift and the more difficult it is to come back from. They don't come back and the rift continues," noted royal expert Penny Juror. "There is a lot of work to be done, it's a shame they can't come back. It shows they are not interested in making things work."

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe noted that it was a shame that the dad-of-two didn't fly in for the event.

“I think it’s very sad that Harry didn’t go, and I think he [would have been] sorely missed,” he told OK!. “Obviously he lives a long way away now and we’ve still got travel restrictions, but it’s entirely possible for him to fly back to the U.K., as he showed in July for the unveiling of the statue."
