Harry and Wills at ‘loggerheads’ before reunion but Queen could be ‘peacemaker’
Prince Harry and Prince William are at “loggerheads” weeks before they reunite at the unveiling of a statue for Princess Diana, a royal expert has claimed.
But, according to Vanity Fair’s Katie Nicholl, the Queen could act as the “peacemaker” between the two.
The two brothers’ supposed rift has been well publicised in recent years and Harry himself has pointed to it with a number of comments on TV.
On a royal tour of South Africa in 2019, he told ITV that the pair were on “different paths” and, this year, described their relationship as “space” in his explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Harry and William are set to reunited in the UK on July 1 for the unveiling of a statue dedicated to their late mum Diana, on what would have been her 60th birthday.
Speaking to the Royal Beat, Katie claimed relations have not been repaired ahead of the date.
“The pair of them [William and Harry] are at such loggerheads,” she said.
“Everything I’m hearing from both sets of friends is that there is no common ground.
“William can’t understand Harry and Harry can’t understand William.
“And you think ‘how are you going to come together when it’s that bad?’”
Royal biographer Ingrid Seward added that, if true, none of these problems will be visible for cameras.
“They will put on a good show in public,” she said.
Katie believed the Queen could act as a “peacemaker” during Harry’s flying visit.
“Let’s hope that there is time for talks that weren’t able to take place last time around,” she continued.
“The Queen is a brilliant peacemaker. She is also the only person who can speak to Harry in a certain way and make him see sense.”
Her Majesty has reportedly invited Harry for “lunch” during his fleeting visit next month to “talk things through”.
But, on Royal Beat, Ingrid was unsure how much would be sorted from it as she claimed the Queen “hates confrontation” and so it would be “very formal”.
