PRINCE WILLIAM and Harry were spotted talking to each other after they left St George’s Chapel in their first face-to-face chat seen in public as Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge helped break the ice.
Prince William and Harry were seen chatting to each other after the funeral service for their grandfather Prince Philip. They were also joined by Kate Middleton on the walk away from St George’s Chapel where the service was held. It was unclear ahead of the funeral whether the two would talk, given recent strained relations.
This was further cast in doubt when it was revealed the pair would not be walking side by side in the funeral procession.
However, the Duchess of Cambridge appeared to play peacemaker for the two brothers.
It appears that Kate started the chat with Harry as the mourners left St George’s Chapel.
Kate then brought her husband William into the conversation.
