Harry and William ‘have talked’ but relationship ‘still very strained’ pal says

Prince Harry and Prince William have "had conversations" but their relationship is "still very strained", it has been reported

Following Prince Harry and wife Meghan Markle's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey the brothers are reported to have fallen out.

But, with the Duke of Sussex due to arrive in the UK any day now do join his brother in unveiling a statue of their late mother Princess Diana, they expected to try and work things out during an upcoming reunion trip.

And with the visit looming, a friend of both brothers said Harry and William have been in touch lately.

The mutual friend told Vanity Fair: "There have been conversations, after Lili was born and to make plans for next week, but things are still very strained."

Representatives for both William and Harry have been approached for comment.

The unveiling of Princess Diana's statue will take place in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace, believed to be the late Princess of Wales' favourite spot at her London residence.

The ceremony was announced last summer in a rare joint statement issued by the brothers.

It read: "The statue that Prince William and Prince Harry have commissioned to commemorate their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, will be installed next year on what would have been her 60th Birthday.

"The statue was commissioned to mark the 20th anniversary of her death and recognise her positive impact in the UK and around the world.

"The statue will be installed in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace on 1st July 2021, marking the Princess’s 60th birthday.

"The Princes hope that the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on their mother’s life and her legacy."

Prince Harry and Prince William last saw each other on April 17, at the funeral of Prince Philip.

Kate Middleton will reportedly help her husband Prince William and his brother Harry to 'put on a united front' at the unveiling.

“The Duchess has seen this project evolve from its conception and now to the finished article and undoubtedly wants to be there to support her husband," a royal source said.

He added: "No doubt there will be tensions between the Cambridges and Harry, but they all recognise that despite the obvious and deep rooted issues between them, they want the day to be solely about the Princess of Wales’s enduring legacy.”
