The world will never forget Prince William and Prince Harry hanging their heads behind Princess Diana’s coffin in 1997. At a young age, both of them lost their mother very early, but later always supported each other. Just as Diana wished for him.

But more than 20 years later, things look different. Relations between the brothers have fizzled out since Harry moved to California with his wife Meghan and son Archie, as well as serious allegations that he made public to his family. After the funeral service for his grandfather Prince Philip in April, he should To participate in a violent argument.
“I don’t mind making Harry”
Now Diana could bring her divided sons closer again, as William and Harry reunited for the first time in her honor. On 1 July, on the occasion of her 60th birthday, she will unveil a statue of her late mother in the gardens of Kensington Palace. After that, a private meeting should be scheduled to “clear the table” as reported by British media.
According to the “Daily Mail” Harry realized he had made mistakes “out of his anger” and was ready to admit them. However, this may not be sufficient. “On the one hand we have Harry, who wouldn’t mind a reconciliation,” Royal expert Robert Lacy wants to know from palace circles. “On the other side is William, who seems unwilling to accept anything.”
Can the queen make peace?
It should be especially important for Queen Elizabeth II that her grandchildren understand each other again. As soon as Harry arrived in London, she went to meet him at Frogmore Cottage. It remains to be seen whether the 95-year-old was able to set the course for reconciliation.
The Queen will not attend the ceremony, as she is currently in Scotland. Neither will Prince Charles and Duchess Kate. As the palace announced, only Diana’s immediate family and sculptor Ian Rank-Bradley are expected.
