That was the first time that the two estranged brothers were seen chatting face-to-face in public since they parted ways in March 2020 when Prince Harry left the U.K. amid family tensions in the wake of Megxit, according to the Daily Mail.
Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, appeared to help get the conversation going. She was seen chatting with Prince Harry as they left the chapel with other mourners after Prince Philip’s burial in Royal Vault in St George’s Chapel.
The three walked away from the chapel together with Prince Harry appearing to smile at Kate as they talked.
Princes Harry and William continued walking along together while Kate turned her attention to Zara Tindall who also attended the funeral with her husband Mike.
Princes Harry and William appeared relaxed as they leisurely strolled along.
Royal watchers have been hoping that Prince Harry’s return home for Prince Philip’s burial would offer an opportunity for him to reconcile with his brother and the rest of his family after tensions escalated in the wake of the controversial interview with Oprah earlier in March.
Expectations that the two brothers would use the opportunity of their grandfather’s funeral to mend fences were earlier cast in doubt when the Palace announced they wouldn’t walk side by side during the funeral procession.
Instead of working shoulder to shoulder, the brothers were seen in the procession to St. George’s Chapel on either side of Peter Phillips, Princess Anne’s son, and Zara Tindall’s elder brother.
Hopes of reconciliation were revived this afternoon when they were seen having a friendly chat.
