Prince William ‘refused to make eye contact’ with Harry at cathedral service

Prince William refused to make eye contact with his younger brother Prince Harry at St Paul's Cathedral according to royal expert Russell Myers.

The estranged brothers sat a few rows apart at the Platinum Jubilee Service of Thanksgiving on Friday, and weren’t seen to speak at all.

As they’re no longer “working” members of the royal family, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were seated in the second row next to Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank. and behind the Wessex family and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester.

The front row was taken up by Prince of Wales, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were greeted warmly by the mass of royal fans outside St Paul’s, but inside the cathedral it was a different story.

Speaking to the Australian morning programme Sunrise, royal expert Russell Myers said: "It was very, very frosty inside the church.

"You could cut the atmosphere with a knife.

"The brothers didn't lock eyes or make eye contact at all.

"Harry was craning his neck to look at William and William didn't look back at him.

"I think there's still a lot of bad atmosphere going on and there needs to be a bit more water under the bridge until those brothers come back together."

Because of her ongoing health problems, Her Majesty the Queen had to watch the service from home but she is known to have made it clear that her grandson and his wife, were very welcome at the Jubilee celebrations.

The Duke and Duchess didn’t attend the reception at the Guildhall where the Lord Mayor of London welcomed guests including HRH The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, along with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and other senior Royals, politicians and representatives of the Armed Forces.

Harry and Meghan instead went back to Frogmore Cottage, Windsor, where they lived when they first married.

The cottage is a stone’s throw from the Queen’s home at Windsor Castle and there has been some speculation that Harry and Meghan could choose to have their daughter Lilibet, who turns one on Saturday, christened while they’re at Windsor.
