Next month a memorial statue of Princess Diana will be unveiled, and royal experts and fans are already theorizing who will be present. Some experts suggest that Prince Harry and Prince William might “cut solo figures” for this significant occasion. With Harry and Meghan becoming parents for the second time only two weeks ago, welcoming their daughter Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana, fans are wondering whether Meghan will opt to travel to the UK to support her husband for the statue unveiling.
Some think that Meghan would love to attend the ceremony alongside Prince Harry, while others think that the Duchess of Sussex will decide to remain in the US and look after their newborn Lili and two-year-old Archie. No matter if she is present at the unveiling, it has been reported that Prince William and Prince Harry will “put on a good show” at the Princess Diana tribute, despite the alleged rift between them.
Royal expert Camilla Tominey suggests that Meghan will not be the only one absent from the event, as she thinks that Kate Middleton will also stay behind with her children with the possibility of bringing about something very significant.
According to reports from Express.co.uk, Camilla has explained how she believes that neither of the princes’ families might end up being there, allowing the two to spend time together as brothers.
“We’ve never really been told that family is going to be included in this thing, we know this is the reunion for the brothers on what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday on 1st July,” Camilla is said to have revealed.
“Never any suggestions that the Cambridges would attend along with Prince William and equally, that Meghan and the children would attend with Harry.”
Instead, Camilla expressed her opinion that the unveiling will simply go ahead with just Prince William and Prince Harry. “I think we may just see them cut solo figures without their families around them,” she explained.
“All eyes will be on the brothers of course, because everyone’s hoping there may be some kind of reconciliation at what is going to be a hugely poignant and significant moment for them, remembering their late mother.”
So far nothing has been officially saying about whether Kate Middleton will attend the unveiling or not. However, Camilla suggests that if Prince William and Prince Harry attend solo, all the spotlight will be put on them and give them the chance to remember their mother together.
This would show the public that the two brothers have a healthy relationship with each other, despite all the theories and speculation that there is a rift between them.
Ever since the Oprah interview was aired, rumours of a rift between Harry and William have been all over news sites. In the interview Harry revealed some not-so-flattering details, describing Prince Charles and Prince William as “trapped” in the institution—something some have claimed is not his “place to say”.
Prince Harry also claimed Prince Charles stopped answering his phone calls after he and Meghan revealed their intention to “step back” as senior members of the Royal Family.
This unveiling of the statue will be the first time the brothers have reunited after Prince Philip’s funeral in April. On July 1st, marking what would have been Princess Diana’s 60th birthday, the brothers will certainly come together to support each other and honour the memory of their dear mother.
