Harry and William’s friendship ‘may not be repaired’ at Diana event, author says

Prince Harry and William's relationship is facing 'make or break' and if their feud isn't repaired at the Princess Diana event today, there's "no guarantee", an author has said.

The brothers have seen a rift between them since the start of last year after the Duke of Sussex announced he was stepping down as a senior royal with wife Meghan Markle.

The pair relocated to America with their son Archie, and have since welcomed a baby daughter into the world, Lilibet Diana.

However, royal expert Duncan Larcombe has told OK! that only time will tell if Harry and William's friendship can be repaired.

"Their late mother's statue unveiling will be make or break for them. It's something they've both plotted as brothers for three years and something they have spoken about wanting since Diana's passing in 1997," he said.

"If the brothers can't put their feud aside on the day they honour their mother, it's fair to say that the damage will only ever be repaired with time – and even then there's no guarantee."

The relationship suffered further tension in March when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a number of allegations against the royal family during a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey on CBS.

Harry accused his father Prince Charles and brother William of being "trapped" in The Firm.

Meghan also claimed that the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, had made her cry over a row involving flower girl dresses before her wedding to Harry.

Prince Harry landed back on UK soil last week, and after a period of self-isolating, was seen for the first time since coming back to Britain following his grandfather's funeral, Prince Philip.

He has flown back to appear by William's side to unveil the statue today, July 1, to mark what would have been Princess Diana's 60th birthday.

The royal siblings will give their own separate speeches to a small number of guests and media.

Initially, the event was meant to be larger but was scaled back over reported concerns of Covid social distancing rules.

Kensington Palace then announced it will be a 'small event' with family members of the Princess of Wales attending.

A statement shared on Twitter by royal author Omid Scobie read: “Prince William and Prince Harry will attend a small event to mark the unveiling of a statue they commissioned of their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace on Thursday 1st July.

"In addition to close family of Diana, Princess of Wales, members of the statue committee, the sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, and garden designer, Pip Morrison, will also be present."
