Prince Charles’ inspired actions forced William and Harry to walk together at funeral


PRINCE CHARLES used ‘initiative’ during Prince Philip’s funeral to get Harry and William walking and interacting with each other, according to a royal expert.

Discussing the funeral which was held over the weekend, Mr Arbiter analysed the interaction between Harry and William.

He told Good Morning Britain: “[The cameras] were not on them very long but we did see a certain amount of animated conversation.

“And I would be very surprised if they didn’t spend time [during and after] talking.

“Unfortunately funerals bring families together but [something happened] which was probably Prince Charles’s initiative.

“The cars were sent back so everybody had to walk 200 metres back to the castle – it was a good icebreaker.”

During the funeral ceremony, Prince Harry and William walked behind Prince Philip’s coffin and were separated by Peter Philips who stood between them.

The brothers appeared to not take notice of each other until they were seen talking while they walked to the entrance of Windsor Castle.

Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, noticeably stood back to allow Harry to enter the group and so he could speak with his brother.

The pair have not seen each other physically for a year after Harry left the Royal Family to live in America at the beginning of 2020.

According to The Sun, Harry and William spoke for two hours following the funeral as some hope the pair return to amicable terms.

But sources state Harry faced a “frosty” reception from many senior royals who refused to acknowledge him during the ceremony.

Princess Anne, Prince Edward and his wife Sophie were reported as ignoring the Duke of Sussex.

Prince Harry also has an open ticket for his return to America as insiders reveal he may stay in the UK for the Queen’s birthday.

However, there have been conflicting reports from insiders who claim the prince is “desperate” to return to his wife Meghan Markle and does not want to involve himself in “emotional discussions.”

The Queen is set to celebrate her official 95th birthday on April 21.

The Duke of Sussex will also return to the UK in June to unveil the Princess Diana statue at Kensington Place on July 1.
