William and Harry’s family and close friends are divided over the future relationship between the two brothers. Although he met to honor his mother, Princess Diana, those close to the princes do not believe that William can return to trust the Duke of Sussex.
Remember that on July 1, Harry and William unveiled a sculpture by artist Ian Rank Broadley, in the gardens of Kensington Palace, to honor their mother, who will turn 60. However, the hope that Harry would spend a few days in the UK to rebuild relations with his family quickly faded, as Harry flew straight the day after the party to the US, where he lives with Meghan Markle and her children, Archie. and Lilibet.
A source close to the family told The Mirror: “Although William and Harry got together this week to celebrate their mother’s legacy, Harry is very far away.” “They put on the show and did what they had to do to make sure the day went smoothly and they said goodbye,” he added.
He added, “There was nothing else, there was nothing to discuss. Things are still very present for William and the other family members (…), so it’s best to leave things as they are for now.”
According to the British newspaper, Harry and William, who were inseparable from each other, only spoke several times via text messages before Harry returned to the UK. The last time the brothers were together was at their grandfather’s funeral, already with a dark cloud from a controversial Oprah Winfrey interview hanging over the royals.
“On one hand, there’s Diana’s family, as well as members of the royal family, who will cling to any shred of hope that the brothers will mend their relationship, and on the other hand, some certainly feel the damage has been done. It’s nearly impossible to trust Harry again,” another source said. .
In photos taken at Thursday’s party, the princes appeared comfortable in each other’s company, but the press reports that Harry had a brighter expression than his brother.
