It is an event that has been marked in their agendas for months. This Thursday, July 1, Princes Harry and William will unveil the statue of their mother, Princess Diana. The two brothers who have not seen each other since April, for the funeral of Prince Philip, will finally meet again. The Duke of Sussex and Cambridge will unveil a statue erected in honor of Lady Di, in Kensington Gardens. A place that the princess particularly loved. The Princess of Wales would have celebrated her 60th birthday on July 1, 2021.
The reunion of princes Harry and William is eagerly awaited, with the many months of tensions stagnating within the British royal family. According to information from the Telegraph, the two brothers have precisely planned to see each other at a private meeting, after the ceremony of the inauguration of the statue, carried out by sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley. Thus, the two fathers can hope to settle their differences and ease their tensions. Both will most certainly “look good for the event as they did at the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral,” according to a close source. “They both know that it is not about them but to remember the late princess”, we also learn.
Prince Harry “ready to reconcile”
Historian Robert Lacey says Prince Harry’s recent criticisms of the royal family were “missteps”. To the Daily Mail, the writer added: “I have been told that Prince Harry has explained to friends that he would like to be reconciled with his brother, and that he is ready to admit to having made certain mistakes”, reports The Express. According to the historian, several friends of Meghan Markle’s husband “have tried to point out to him the risk he runs with his many hurtful personal complaints” sent to his older brother and to the royal family in general. Ahead of the big reunion with his brother, the Duke of Sussex is currently confined to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.
