Report: William & Harry Still Reuniting For Diana Statue After Interview Revelations
Despite ever-rising tensions, Prince William and Prince Harry are still expected to reunite this July to unveil a statue of Princess Diana at Kensington Palace. Today, royal insiders said that the brothers are "still committed" to the event that is now less than four months away. Both princes had publicly addressed their strained relationship in recent days as a result of renewed attention from Harry's interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Prince William and Prince Harry reportedly "still" intend to reunite this July for the unveiling of a Princess Diana statue. The news comes in the aftermath of Harry and Meghan's interview with Oprah Winfrey, which resulted in new tensions and the Duke of Cambridge publicly denouncing claims of racism within the Royal Family.
Princes Harry & William "still" reuniting for Diana statue: Report
On Thursday, The Mirror reported that royal sources confirmed the statue unveiling is still on. Insider Russell Myers added, "William is still committed, as is Harry, to get together on July 1st for the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue at Kensington Gardens."
The statue event has been scheduled for nearly a year now, set to be unveiled by the late Princess of Wales's sons on what would've been her 60th birthday. Uncertainty has lingered over the event, however, due to pandemic restrictions and the recent news that Duchess Meghan is expecting a baby girl this summer.
William & Harry's relationship revisited in Oprah interview
Oprah with Meghan and Harry also reignited public tensions between the brothers after Harry both spoke on their relationship and accused unnamed Royal Family members of racism. On his and William's current status, Harry told Oprah: "The relationship is space. Time heals all things, hopefully."
Prince William was also the first royal to publicly address the interview, which included Harry and Meghan describing a shocking incident in which a family member expressed concern about how "dark" Archie's skin would be. Following an engagement on Thursday, William said, "We're very much not a racist family."
The Duke also answered if he'd been in touch with Prince Harry since the interview, five days later, to which he responded: "No, I haven't spoken to him yet, but I will do." All eyes will be on the brothers on July 1.
