While relations between the royal brothers, Prince Harry and Prince William have been strained for a couple of years now, Harry’s two most recent trips to the UK seem to have opened to gates to change.
In the new epilogue to Finding Freedom, claims were made that Harry’s ticket to the UK for his grandfather’s funeral was in fact one-way. Later on, after the service at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, the two brothers were picked up by cameras walking together.
“At least two further conversations took place between the brothers during Harry’s eight-day trip, according to sources” the book goes on to claim.
William and Harry were also reunited on the first of July, commemorating their late mother, Princess Diana, by unveiling a statue in her honour at Kensington Palace.
Harry’s time in the UK allowed him to reconnect with his father, Prince Charles, as well, chatting with him at a small outdoor gathering at Windsor Castle after Prince Philip’s funeral.
Admitting that things between them were strained and saying there is “a lot to work through” with Charles, in a later interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Lastly, but certainly not least, the Duke of Sussex was able to reunite with his grandmother, the Queen.
“To see each other after so long apart, the longest he hadn’t seen the Queen for, was very special,” a source told the book’s authors OmidScobie and Carolyn Durand.
When Finding Freedom was published last August, a spokesperson for the couple said at the time: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom. This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting.”
