Prince Harry, 36, and Prince William, 39, now live on opposite sides of the Atlantic after the Duke of Sussex and his wife decided to step down as senior royals. The pair have been embroiled in a very public spat, with Harry saying the brothers are “on different paths.” Nonetheless, the two have put aside their differences in order to support a new exhibition to honour the memory of their late mother Princess Diana.

Harry and William both agreed to lend their mother’s iconic taffeta wedding gown to Historic Royal Palaces for a temporary show.

On Monday the charity plugged the exhibition on Twitter with a teaser clip of the famous dress.

The tweet read: “This summer we’re welcoming you back to #KensingtonPalace in royal style.

“See the wedding dress of Diana, Princess of Wales in our new exhibition exploring the intimate relationship between designer and royal client, opening June 3.”

A description of the exhibition on the Historic Royal Palaces website reads: “Opening at Kensington Palace this summer, this new exhibition explores the intimate relationship between fashion designer and royal client.

“The display features never-before-seen items from the archives of some of the most celebrated royal couturiers of the 20th century, set alongside examples of the glittering gowns and stylish tailoring created for three generations of royal women.

“The wedding dress of Diana, Princess of Wales will also be on display, as the exhibition explores the fine art of designing for royalty.”

The show will open to the public a few weeks before Harry is due back in the UK to join William at Kensington Palace to unveil a new statue of Diana in the gardens.

The artwork was commissioned by the two brothers and will be revealed to the public on July 1, which would have been Diana’s 60th birthday.

A Kensington Palace press release about the statue’s planned unveiling stated: “The statue will be installed in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace on July 1 2021, marking The Princess’s 60th birthday.

“The Princes hope that the statue will help all those who visit Kensington Palace to reflect on their mother’s life and her legacy.”

Harry and his wife Meghan Markle relocated to the USA following their royal exit last year and are expected to remain in the States long-term.

They live in Montecito, California with their one-year-old son Archie Harrison and are currently expecting their second child, a baby girl, who is due to be born this summer.

Harry returned to Britain for the first time in months in order to attend Prince Philip’s funeral on April 17.

The service was the first time William and Harry had been reunited in public since Harry and Meghan’s departure from the fold.

The brothers appeared to show there was reconciliation between them as they walked side by side and spoke following the poignant ceremony.

William was understood to have felt hurt by Meghan and Harry’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey which aired at the start of March.

During the explosive sitdown, the Sussexes launched a series of damaging allegations against the royal household including the claim that Harry was questioned by a senior royal about the skin colour of their unborn son.

The interview plunged the monarchy into crisis as it worked out how to respond and a matter of days after it aired William spoke out to defend his family.

During an official trip to a school, the Duke of Cambridge responded to a reporter’s question about the interview by saying the Royal Family “is very much not racist.”
