Prince William and Prince Harry are likely to put on a "good show" when they reunite on what would have been Princess Diana's 60th birthday in July.


Prince Harry and Prince William are set to come face-to-face again at the unveiling of their mother, Princess Diana's statue on July 1. 

It will be the first time the brothers have seen each other since Prince Philip's funeral—where they put on a united front following months of feuding.

According to royal expert, Ingrid Seward, it is unlikely the brothers will have totally healed their fractured relationship in such a short space of time, but they will put on a united front on behalf of their mother.

She told the Express, "I am sure Harry will be there and put on a good show with William.

"You can’t repair a relationship overnight so whether they try or not remains to be seen."

There was speculation as to whether Prince Harry would be able to attend the unveiling due to the current travel restrictions caused by COVID-19 and the new arrival of his daughter, Lilibet—named after the Queen.

Thankfully he was able to return to the UK for Prince Philip's funeral in April and the Duke of Sussex hopes to fly back again for this special occasion.

"Harry has said he will do his utmost to be there. He wants to put on a united front with William and pay an appropriate tribute to their mother," a source previously revealed.

After taking several very public blows at his father, brother and other members of the royal family during a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry knows all eyes will be on him and Prince William at the event that should be about his mother. The Duke of Sussex's relationship with Prince Charles, eldest of Queen Elizabeth's children and heir to the throne, is reportedly frostier than it's ever been before. 

Royal editor of the Sunday Times, Roya Nikkah explained, "Both William and Harry know this moment is a huge global moment, and that moment has to be about their mother's memory.

"So, in the same way they did for the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral, I'm absolutely certain they will put any personal differences aside for that day to make sure that it goes off well and they honour their mother in the way that they wanted to with that statue.

"So I don't think we should expect to see any froideur or distance there."
