While something like a death in the family can be a tragic event, it can also become an opportunity for relatives to put disagreements in perspective. And apparently, that has been the case with Prince William and Prince Harry.
Prince William and his brother Prince Harry were reportedly joined by Prince Charles for a two-hour meeting after Prince Philip Funeral on Saturday.
Their meeting sparked hopes that the royal brothers could patch the devastating rift between them up.
According to The Sun, the trio had private talks away from the cameras, mingling at Windsor Castle with other family members.
A source told the publication: “It’s early days but you’d hope this is exactly the first step Philip would have wished for.
“It is not known what was said behind closed doors and when the cameras were turned off, but it’s unfathomable to think Megxit and Oprah did not come up.”
A royal insider revaled:“Obviously after the worldwide fallout of the Oprah interview trust has to be rebuilt.
“There was no official wake after the funeral, but Charles, William and Harry took the opportunity to speak and catch-up face to face after many months apart.
‘It was important to Charles and William that they were both there together. It means nothing spoken about can be misconstrued in the future.’
Prince William and Prince Harry were also filmed chatting as they made their way from St. George’s Chapel back to Windsor Castle alongside the rest of the royal family.
Once the moment was shown to the TV audience, royal fans were quick to share their opinions.
One wrote:“This is so lovely to see! The three of them supporting each other in this sad time”.
“Grief really makes people come together and reevaluate everything,” another said.
“It did warm my heart seeing William, Harry and Kate so close,” a person wrote, with another agreeing, writing: “Just like old times”.
A source told The Mirror: “It will take a long time to heal on all sides, but the initial signs are encouraging. It is very much hoped this is a turning point.”
