It looks like Prince Philip’s death is gradually bringing the royal family together, after weeks of back and forth royal drama, with Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle and the royal family.
Sources stated that Prince Williams and Prince Harry would work behind their grandfather’s coffin (Prince Philip) on his burial day.
The source also revealed that this would be the first time the brothers will be seen together since Meghan and Harry’s interview drama with Oprah Winfrey.
You recall that prince harry had revealed to Oprah that his elder brother prince Williams was ‘trapped’ inside the Monarchy. The royal family reacted to his claim, and Williams has ever since been quiet about it.
Well, both prince Williams and prince harry are expected to stand shoulder to shoulder to form part of the royal procession at the service for the Duke of Edinburgh in Windsor on Saturday, April 17. Even after not seeing each other in person since autumn in 2019.
Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, died on Friday morning, April 9, at Windsor Castle just weeks after being discharged from the hospital. His funeral will be attended by 30 members of the Royal Family.
Royal sources revealed that the Duke of Edinburgh was saddened by the rift between the two brothers and urged them to put their differences aside for the sake of the Queen.
A source told the Mail on Sunday, April 11, that:
‘All eyes will be on William and Harry at the funeral.
‘This is the first time we’re going to see them together since Harry and Meghan left for their new life in America.
‘There has been so much bad blood but everyone is hoping that, perhaps, this will mark the beginning of a reconciliation.’
Even though tensions have been ‘high’, the source added that the Royal Family are ‘united in grief’.
‘Harry was told the news about his grandfather at the same time as other members of the family.’
The source added: ‘They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Everyone will be watching the funeral closely to see the body language between the brothers.’
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex posted a tribute to Philip on their foundation Archewell website on Friday, April 9. the tribute reads:
“In loving memory of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh 1921-2021
“Thank you for your service… You will be greatly missed.”
