Prince Harry’s surprising nod to William during speech despite their rift

Prince Harry has shocked fans of the royal family by giving a nod to his brother William in a new video, despite their ongoing ‘feud’.

The 36-year-old made a surprise appearance at the Diana Awards, named in honour of his late mother, which recognises young people working to improve the lives of others.

Harry has recently flown home to attend the unveiling of a statue of Princess Diana to celebrate what would have been her 60th birthday.

Ahead of the memorial event on Thursday, the Duke of Sussex appeared virtually at the Diana Awards to commend the winners.

“Later this week, my brother and I are recognising what would have been our mum’s 60th birthday,” he began.

“She would be so proud of you all for living authentic life with purpose and with compassion for others.”


Harry went on to emphasise the importance of the award ceremony by putting a focus on young people for the future.

“Meg and I fundamentally believe that our world is at the cusp of change, real change for the good of all.”

The Queen races to meet Prince Harry

After arriving in the UK over the weekend, Harry is currently quarantining at Frogmore Cottage, where his cousin Princess Eugenie lives.

According to The Sun, the Queen barely gave Harry time to unpack his suitcase before she was spotted making her way to visit her grandson.

“It is quite something. No sooner had Harry been driven from Heathrow to Frogmore Cottage the Queen was on her way down,” a source said.

“I’m sure they would have plenty to talk about. The Queen would obviously want to see her grandson after everything that has gone on and could take this opportunity to act as the peacemaker.”

It has been reported that Kate Middleton will also be playing the role of peacekeeper between Harry and William when they reunite this week for the first time since Prince Philip’s funeral.

An insider has claimed that the Duchess of Cambridge has agreed to attend Diana’s ceremony at Kensington Palace and will reportedly walk alongside both brothers.

“The Duchess has seen this project evolve from its conception and now to the finished article and undoubtedly wants to be there to support her husband,” the source told the Mirror.

No doubt there will be tensions between the Cambridges and Harry, but they all recognise that despite the obvious and deep-rooted issues between them, they want the day to be solely about the Princess of Wales's enduring legacy.”
