Washington: Princes William and Harry barely spoke to one another and spent only 20 minutes in the same room after the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue at Kensington Palace on July 1.
As per Fox News, the once inseparable brothers, who haven’t seen each other since Prince Phillip’s funeral, where William asked to not walk beside Harry, are still “warring” and sources close to the pair told the Mirror: it is “almost impossible for Harry to be trusted.”
The divide deepened since allegations were made that Meghan Markle bullied palace staff and the explosive Oprah Winfrey interview Harry and Meghan did this Spring in which they claimed Markle felt suicidal and unprotected during her pregnancy.
After the devastating Oprah interview, Harry continued to dish about private chats to CBS’ Gayle King – prompting the royals to refuse to have “one-on-one” chats with Harry because neither trusts him enough to speak with him alone.
“Despite William and Harry coming together this week for the sole cause of commemorating their mother’s legacy, Harry is very much on the outside. “They put on a show, did what they had to do to make sure the day went without a hitch and said goodbye,” a source told the Mirror.
As per Fox News, Harry, who left for America almost immediately after the statue unveiling, is now back with his wife Meghan, who hasn’t seen her in-laws since Megxit.
The brothers took the wraps off the statue in the garden of Diana’s former London home at Kensington Palace, in an intimate ceremony due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Kensington Palace said it aimed to reflect Diana’s “warmth, elegance and energy”. The children represent “the universality and generational impact” of her work, it added.
“Today, on what would have been our mother’s 60th birthday, we remember her love, strength and character — qualities that made her a force for good around the world, changing countless lives for the better,” they said in a statement.
“Every day, we wish she were still with us, and our hope is that this statue will be seen forever as a symbol of her life and her legacy.”
