Prince Harry and William will ‘put on brave face’ at Princess Diana celebration

Prince William and brother Harry are set to reunite as a statue is unveiled to honour their mother Princess Diana.

And royal experts say the princes will put their differences aside and put on a show of unity the same way they did for Prince Philip's funeral.

According to one palace source: “Of course they will put on a brave face for the event, like they did at the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral. They both know it is not about them but remembering the late princess.
“But the idea that this can all be forgiven and forgotten… it’s going to take a lot longer than a couple of days.”

According to royal expert Camilla Tominey the rift between the brothers runs so deep that Wills and Kate are still refusing to watch Harry and Meghan's TV appearances.

Writing for the Daily Telegraph, she said: "It is perhaps telling that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge still haven’t watched Harry and Meghan’s Oprah Winfrey interview from start to finish.

"While the Queen and Prince Charles are understood to have seen all 90 minutes, William and Kate have only viewed selected highlights of the Sussexes’ TV blitzkrieg, in which they accused the Royals of racism (among other things)."

Tominey thinks there's no chance of William and Harry making up at their mum's celebration. She wrote: "While there is no doubt that the Royal brothers will publicly set aside their differences in memory of their beloved mother, privately, a reconciliation looks unlikely."

Harry, 36, landed at Heathrow, but had to self-isolate for five days after arriving in Britain so he won't be spending time with relatives, whereas wife Meghan, 39 is not coming over as she only gave birth to their second child, Lilibet, less than a month ago and will remain at the family home in Montecito, Santa Barbara with their two-year-old son, Archie.

Diana’s brother, Earl Spencer, and sisters Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Jane Fellowes, are also expected to be in the Sunken Garden on what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday, along with sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley and garden designer Pip Morrison.

But according to Tominey, Kate is also giving the ceremony a miss so Harry doesn't feel "outflanked".
