They stick together. Nine months after their cold and distant greetings on Commonwealth Day, the Duke of Sussex’s final engagement as a senior member of England’s Royal Family, Prince Harry and Prince William step up to the plate as part of the investigation devoted to the confession interview with Lady Diana, broadcast in 1995 on the Panorama program on the BBC. “William is asking for answers and is determined to get to the bottom of it and find out the truth,” said a source close to the two brothers in the columns of the American magazine Us Weekly on Wednesday, December 16.
Remember, in this interview with journalist Martin Bashir – now accused of having manipulated the Princess of Hearts – Lady Diana gave herself up without restraint about her life within the Windsor-Mountbatten clan, and in particular about her infidelities and those of her husband, Prince Charles. Confessions that had embarrassed the Crown and which, more than two decades after the fact, continue to have an impact on the monarchy. “For William, this particular interview is still very brutal”, continued the relative of the sons of Prince Charles and his ex-wife, “Harry is angry about the interview.” Result, Prince Harry and Prince William have reconnected, leading to believe that a fraternal reconciliation is imminent. “The investigation had a positive effect on William and Harry’s relationship. They bonded and spoke more frequently on Zoom and WhatsApp.”
Peace at the rendezvous
A glimmer of hope, especially with the approach of the end of year celebrations during which the members of the royal family will be dispersed contrary to the tradition which would like to reunite them in Sandringham, as every year. “William has accepted the reasons for Harry’s departure from the royal family and is happy to see his brother so well installed”, concludes the informant, still with Us Weekly. The US edition of Vanity Fair magazine already hinted at a reconciliation between the brothers, with a relative saying their relationship is “much better than it was.” On the cold for several months, Prince Harry and Prince William could well celebrate Christmas together, by videoconference. Our colleagues across the Atlantic also specified that the Sussexes “sent Christmas presents to the Cambridge family.” Even from the beyond, Lady Diana was able to mend her two sons.
