Could Prince Harry and Prince William slowly but surely be mending their relationship? According to an insider, the two may put on a united front at Queen Elizabeth's funeral, which will take place on September 19.
“We are certainly not in the same place as Philip’s funeral when William and Harry didn’t walk side by side," the source said. “Things haven’t changed but it is not as intense and they can co-exist."
The two brothers were recently seen with their wives — Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle — when fans presented them with flowers and cards after the Queen's tragic death. Though it looked like they were smiles, the source revealed that is far from the truth.
"But the flower visit really doesn’t change anything. It is the same situation as at Prince Philip’s funeral when William and Harry put their differences aside and supported each other and their families in that moment," the source said.
After King Charles took the throne, he took the time to call out Harry and Meghan, despite not being on the best terms with them.
"I must admit I was surprised that he did mention them in the speech given everything that has happened, giving everything that Meghan has said about the Royal Family," royal expert Chris Ship said. "Given the Oprah Winfrey interview that we discussed on your program, what was it less than two years ago at great length?"
"But I think if the family can't come together at a time like this, then I suppose we should conclude it never will," he continued. "If William and Harry can't work through their differences, and remember crucially Harry's in the country at the moment for the first time, he was supposed to be doing a series of engagements this week for charities. If William and Harry can't at least get some kind of conversation going this week when they're both in Windsor, they never really will."
