British Prince Harry spoke with his brother William and father Charles after the funeral ceremony of his grandfather, the husband of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, Duke Philip of Edinburgh, the Sun reports, citing sources.
Prince Philip’s funeral ceremony was held at Windsor Castle on April 17.
The publication notes that for the first time after the interview of Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, the American TV presenter Oprah Winfrey, the brothers met with each other and their father. The meeting of the relatives lasted about two hours. The three of them met at Windsor Castle, away from the cameras. “It’s too early, but we can hope that this is the first step that Philip would like,” a source told the newspaper.
According to another source, it is not known what the relatives talked about “behind closed doors,” but it is unlikely that they did not touch on the topic of the interview and the exit of the Dukes of Sussex from the royal family. “Harry and William appeared to be in cordial communication with each other when the cameras went off, and this apparently prepared the opportunity for Charles to join them when everyone else had left,” the source said.
According to the publication, Prince Harry can stay in Britain until Wednesday to congratulate Queen Elizabeth II on her 95th birthday. The Daily Mail newspaper, citing sources close to the royal family, reported earlier that Harry would return to the United States to his pregnant wife Meghan Markle on Monday, April 19.
Earlier it was reported that British Princes William and Harry appeared together for the first time in more than a year during the funeral of Prince Philip. During the ceremony, the brothers walked from opposite sides of their cousin, Peter Phillips. The relationship between the sons of Prince Charles and Princess Diana soured due to the unexpected decision of Harry and his wife Meghan to abandon the status of high-ranking members of the royal family and their subsequent scandalous interview with Oprah Winfrey.
