William and Harry are in mourning and are expected to attend the funeral of their mother’s family member, Princess Diana.
The date of the funeral of this maternal great-aunt of Prince William and Prince Harry has not yet been communicated.
This is an opportunity for Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, to make the trip and for the two brothers to meet.
An aunt who looks a lot like Lady Di died on March 3, 2023. The date of the funeral of this great-aunt of brothers William and Harry has not yet been communicated. This does not prevent the revival of speculation on a possible meeting between the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Sussex before the coronation of their father, King Charles III of England, 74 years old. Mary Cynthia Roche, Princess Diana’s aunt, died on March 3, aged 88, as reported by the Telegraph. Recall that Mary Cynthia Burke Roche was the older sister of Frances Shand, the mother of Lady Di.
Gala reveals that the mother of Prince William and Prince Harry was particularly close to the late great-aunt, a pillar of the Spencer family. The magazine also recalls this remark by Mary Cynthia Roche about her niece’s marriage to Charles III. “They weren’t on the same wavelength then,” said the great-aunt. “Diana was young and didn’t have much life experience while Charles was already a great intellectual and a great reader. Maybe they were strangers to each other,” she said .
Prince Harry: two opportunities for the Duke of Sussex to return to the country
The Prince of Wales and Duke of Sussex’s uncle Charles Spencer has posted a photo of Lady Di with her aunt. “Diana looks so much like your Aunt Mary,” one user said. “What a resemblance between the members of the Spencer family!” wrote another on social networks. Either way, this unfortunate event would be an opportunity for Prince William, 41, and Prince Harry, 38, to find themselves side by side again. As for the presence of Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, at the coronation of his father, King Charles III of England, on May 6, the situation has changed somewhat. The ball is in the Sussexes’ court because King Charles III has officially invited them.
