Prince Harry and Prince William speak face to face again. The separated siblings were seen deep in conversation after leaving Saturday for the funeral of their grandfather, Prince Philip.
The intimate service, which took place in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle, began with the two brothers walking in procession behind Prince Philip’s coffin, which had been placed in a custom Land Rover, designed by the Duke of himself. Edinburgh.
Although the two brothers participated in the procession, their cousin, Peter Phillips, came between them and there seemed no opportunity to speak during the grim occasion.
When the service began, the 30 royal family members in attendance were seated separately due to COVID-19 protocols.
When family members left the chapel, Harry, William, and William’s wife, Kate Middleton, were seen walking together. Harry and William then parted ways and were seen talking closely as they strolled through the grounds of Windsor Castle.
As previously reported, Saturday’s service was the first time Harry and William had met face to face after more than a year. The two spoke on the phone before the meeting in person, but due to the quarantine required by Harry after flying from California to England, they did not have a chance to meet in person before the ceremony.
Harry said during last month’s revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey that his relationship with his brother was currently “spatial.” Gayle King later shared that Harry and William had spoken after the interview, but that the conversations were deemed “unproductive.”
Royal expert Katie Nicholl previously told ET about Philip’s funeral: “There is high hope that this is the beginning of the thaw of the gap between William and Harry. We all know it has not been an easy year. Gap in heart of the monarchy “.
