Prince Harry and Prince William’s meeting will take place tomorrow, after the unveiling of the statue of Princess Diana at Kensington Palace, royal commentator Camilla Tominey claimed. This gathering could be seen as a shared desire for reconciliation by the brothers. 

This meeting would come after the brothers secretly collaborated for months on the statue’s design and where it should be placed, according to an insider.

Ms Tominey wrote in the Telegraph: “A palace insider confirmed that William and Harry had spent months collaborating on the design – down to the very last detail, including advising the sculptor on how her nose should look.

“They apparently spent ‘weeks’ deciding where exactly it should be located in the grounds of the royal residence in west London which will always be synonymous with the princess.”

Prince Harry and Prince William are to appear together tomorrow in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace. 

There, they will be joined by a handful of guests including Princess Diana’s close family, garden designer Pip Morrison and sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.

Last month it was claimed Harry and William would deliver two separate speeches rather than speak united with a joint one – but the Palace has remained tight-lipped on this detail.

The brothers have been working on this fitting tribute for Princess Diana since 2017, when they announced their plans to erect a statue for their mother.

The sculpture is “not in any way austere or imperious”, a source close to the project said. 

Speaking to the Telegraph, they added: “Both brothers wanted to ensure that the artwork is something that really resonates with the public.

“It’s absolutely charming and such a fitting tribute.”

In the run-up to tomorrow’s much-anticipated event, Prince William has carried on with his royal duties as usual.

On Monday, he travelled to Scotland with the Queen as she began the annual Royal Week of visits north of the border. 

Yesterday, the Duke of Cambridge visited the BAE Systems Govan shipyard to see the construction of the HMS Glasgow.

There, he paid tribute to his grandfather and announced the Queen has approved the appointment of Kate as the sponsor of the vessel.

In the evening, Kate and Prince William delighted royal fans by bringing to Wembley Stadium their firstborn Prince George, who celebrated England’s victory against the national German team.

Meanwhile, Prince Harry has been self-isolating at Frogmore Cottage since Friday. 

He is believed to have been already visited by the Queen, whose car was spotted heading towards the Sussexes’ residence in the UK.

The Duke of Sussex also released a video in which he celebrates the recipients of the 2021 Diana Awards.

Mentioning his reunion with Prince William, Harry said: “Later this week, my brother and I are recognising what would have been our mum’s 60th birthday, and she would be so proud of you all for living an authentic life with purpose and with compassion for others.

“Our mum believed that young people have the power to change the world. 

“She believed in your strength because she saw it day in and day out.

“And in the faces of young people exactly like you, she witnessed a boundless enthusiasm and passion, and I, too, see those same values shine through.”

Prince William and Harry last met in person at the funeral of Prince Philip on April 17.

On that occasion, the Duke of Sussex remained in the UK for nine days, including five spent in quarantine, and reportedly spoke twice with the Queen.
