Prince William and Prince Harry showed “no connection” during their reunion on July 1, according to a body language expert. The brothers came together to unveil a statue in honour of Princess Diana, but showed no sign of turning to each other “for some type of support” on the emotional day.
Blanca Cobb, a body language expert, told US Weekly: “We would expect with the unveiling of their mother who they both loved tremendously, that there would be some kind of emotion, that they would look to each other for some type of support.
“That’s not anything that we saw.
“During the unveiling, Harry looked over at William, ‘are we going to pull at the same time, what’s going on’ – there was a lot of non-verbals there.
“Afterwards, there really was no connection between the two.”
“You would anticipate that there would be some kind of words or non-verbal communication between siblings and it wasn’t there.
“From that perspective, it really gives a sense that something isn’t quite right.”
Ms Cobb did however note that due to the “royalness” of the occasion, their attitude towards each other might have been “more formal and perhaps intentional”.
Before the ceremony at Kensington Palace, the brothers reportedly spent the morning together going through old Diana keepsakes.
Prince William and Prince Harry commissioned the statue in 2017 to honour what would have been their mother’s 60th birthday.
Designed by British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley, it was unveiled on July 1 in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace.
The location was chosen specifically as it was known to be Diana’s favourite location at the Palace.
The brothers were joined in the private ceremony by members of the Spencer family, including Diana’s three siblings.

Prince Harry flew back to the UK specifically for the occasion, leaving his wife and newborn daughter Lilibet in California.
Relations between Prince William and Prince Harry have been strained since the fallout of Megxit in January 2020.
During an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Harry summarised their relationship as “space” and said they were “on different paths”.
Both brothers however put aside their differences to honour their mother’s legacy. Princess Diana died in 1997 at the age of 36 when William and Harry were only 15 and 12 years old.
