Prince William and Prince Harry have continued to grow further apart over the last year, and author Duncan Larcombe believes that if coming together to honor their late mother, Princess Diana, doesn't help them mend ties, nothing ever will.
On July 1, the estranged brothers are set to reunite at Kensington Palace to debut a statue of their mom, and the writer of Prince Harry: The Inside Story believes the intimate ceremony will "be make or break for them."
"It's something they've both plotted as brothers for three years and something they have spoken about wanting since Diana's passing in 1997," he noted. "If the brothers can't put their feud aside on the day they honor their mother, it's fair to say that the damage will only ever be repaired with time — and even then there's no guarantee."
Though an insider told The Telegraph that the siblings are prepared to have a private meeting after the ceremony, they won't have much time, as it was reported that Harry's keen to get back home to Meghan Markle and their two kids in California.
"It’ll be a fleeting visit," an insider noted of Harry's trip. "He’ll be in and out."
However, the two are planning to keep the peace at the event to honor their mom's legacy. "They know the eyes of the world will be on them — watching their every move — so what you will see is a carefully choreographed show of unity for that day, at least," another source claimed.
Harry is currently staying at Frogmore Cottage, where he was quarantining. However, it was revealed that after finishing the required isolation period, he made a surprise appearance at a charity event.
"Organizers have moved heaven and Earth to make this happen..." the source told The Sun. "It’s an incredibly important day for him and the organizers want to make it as successful as possible."
