The past year has been a whirlwind of Royal drama, not just for the Royal Family but fans of them too, as we try to get our heads around the bickering and what observers call “royal feuds”. Prince Harry, often the centre of analysis by Royal commentators, has returned to the UK to unveil a statue dedicated to his mother Princess Diana – on what would have been her 60th birthday. On July 1, 2021, the Duke of Sussex will reunite with brother Prince William.

It’s a great day to make amends with people, to atone for things today

But amid reports the brothers have experienced a strained relationship in the aftermath of Harry and Meghan Markle leaving the family, radio DJ Chris Evans wondered if the pair would finally make amends.

Discussing the extreme tensions in their relationship, the Virgin Radio host said: “It’s a great day to make amends with people, to atone for things today.

“I hope that Harry and Will sort it out so that Harry, if he’s still in the country, he can go to the semi-final and the finals!” Chris exclaimed, talking about England’s victorious match against Germany on Tuesday, bumping us into the quarter-finals.

“He’s a massive football fan, I know he is,” he added.

“I’ve been to the football, not with them, but I was there when they were there and I interviewed them at one of the games together.

“They were both loving it!”

Harry flew in from Los Angeles last week and is residing at Frogmore Cottage for five days in quarantine.

The brothers commissioned the Diana statue in 2017, with today being what would have been the late Princess’s 60th birthday.

They are due to stand side-by-side in Kensington Palace’s Sunken Garden to unveil the statue, but royal expert Roya Nikkhah claims that “neither brothers are offering an olive branch”.

The Sunday Times royal editor spoke to a close friend of both pair, who reportedly said: “I fear it will be the same as at Prince Philip’s funeral.

“A nod of recognition, and that’s about it.”

The royal source added: “On the day, it will be difficult to separate the statue from the occasion.

“The occasion is now loaded with all sorts of unwelcome baggage.”

They went on: “Of course they will put on a brave face for the event.

“This is what both brothers did at the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral.”

Speaking to The Times, a close friend of both brothers referenced the controversial Oprah interview and said: “William is still angry about it.

“It’s despair, as well as anger.”

Referring to tension around the upcoming event, Telegraph royal correspondent Camilla Tominey quoted a source as saying: “They both know it is not about them but remembering the late Princess.

“But the idea that this can all be forgiven and forgotten, it’s going to take a lot longer than a couple of days.”
