William and Harry, Saturday, appeared in public together for the first time in more than a year at their grandfather Philip’s funeral at Windsor Castle.
The princes spoke to each other while walking out of St George’s Chapel following the funeral service for Prince Philip this afternoon. They were earlier seen taking part in the funeral procession but walked beside their cousin Peter Phillips.
Harry was first spotted speaking to his sister-in-law Kate Middleton as they left the chapel before he spoke his brother William.
It was the first time William and his estranged brother, Harry were seen together since March 2020, when they attended a Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey with other royals.
The princes, who were dressed in suits did not stand shoulder to shoulder behind the Duke of Edinburgh’s coffin but walked beside their cousin Peter Phillips to the St George’s Chapel for Prince Philip’s funeral this afternoon.
William, 38, and Harry, 36, were among nine members of the Royal Family who walked behind their grandfather’s typically unique coffin this afternoon, leaving the Sovereign’s entrance at Windsor Castle at precisely 2.45pm.
Royal aides have been ‘walking on eggshells’ as they try to navigate the rift between the brothers, sources said last night as tensions remain following Harry and Meghan’s acrimonious split from the Royal Family last year.
Speaking about the brothers’ conversation today, body language expert Judi James told MailOnline: ‘The moment of connection between William and Harry came right at the end of the service as they left the chapel.
”In a well-co-ordinated but also relatively natural-looking moment, Harry walked up behind William and Kate to then join them, walking between them and chatting to them both.
”After a few seconds of what looked like natural and not self-conscious conversation, Kate fell back, leaving the two brothers walking off talking alone. It looked like a genuine moment of unity rather than something contrived for the cameras.”
