For most of the last year, Prince Harry and Prince William hadn't been seen together in public. Add to that tensions caused by the tell-all explosive interview. By now, it is no secret that while the royal family was still recuperating from the interview and its aftermath, they were struck by the blow of Prince Philip's death at the age of 99. It is amidst these tensions that Harry flew back from the US to attend the funeral leaving behind his pregnant wife. 

While a heavily pregnant Meghan remained back in California with Archie following medical advice, it's now being reported that she might have initiated peace talks from across the ocean. It is being reported that she and Kate wanted the brothers to be able to make peace ahead of the funeral service of their grandfather.

Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark was born 10 June 1921, in Greece. He served in the British Royal Navy and fought in WWII. He married the then Princess Elizabeth on 20 November 1947 and was created Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth, and Baron Greenwich by King VI. He served as Prince Consort to Queen Elizabeth II until his death on April 9 2021, months short of his 100th birthday. His funeral takes place today at Windsor Castle with only 30 guests invited due to Coronavirus pandemic restrictions. (Getty Images)

According to a royal source who revealed the inside details just before the funeral, "All eyes will be on the brothers when they see each other for the first time. No doubt it will be a big moment for them both, but they will likely put all differences to one side for the sake of their grandfather."

'Best for the family'

The source went on to reveal what this entailed, revealing that old intimate bonds might have facilitated the union. "Kate has been instrumental in playing peacemaker with them and as Harry landed in the UK, was keen for them to speak and meet beforehand. She's always had a close bond with Harry and would love a resolution."

Commonwealth Day has a special significance this year, as 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the modern Commonwealth, with old ties and new links enabling cooperation towards social, political and economic development which is both inclusive and sustainable. The Commonwealth represents a global network of 53 countries and almost 2.4 billion people, a third of the worlds population, of whom 60 percent are under 30 years old. (Getty Images)

Meghan, who didn't join the funeral but ensured to pay her respects to the late Duke, was also involved. "Meghan wants the feud to be healed too. Especially with another baby on the way. They both want what's best for the families and both tried to play peacemaker at the start of the tension."

At the same time, it was noted by many that Harry and William did not really walk side by side during Prince Philip's funeral procession. Many pointed out how they walked on either side of their cousin Peter Phillips.

At a time like this, the latest reports also reveal that Harry flew back to the US soon after the funeral. Photos published by The Sun reveal that Harry took an American Airlines flight from London to join Meghan in the US.
