Queen extends olive branch to Harry as Palace INCLUDES him in beautiful pictures for Prince Philip tribute
In a surprising move, the Queen made sure that the pictures shared by the Palace as a tribute to her husband included a photograph of Harry
A picture speaks a thousand words, especially when several members of your family haven't particularly been speaking much. In an extremely graceful gesture, the Queen used a photograph to get the family together. In what is being seen as an olive branch, the Queen seems to have ensured that Harry's picture with his grandfather was included in a beautiful series of photographs of the royal family, as a tribute to Prince Philip.
The royal family Twitter account stated, "Today, members of the Royal Family have shared photographs of The Duke of Edinburgh, remembering him as a father, grandfather and great-grandfather."

It has come as a surprise to some that Harry was included in the picture tribute, especially after he stepped down from his duties as a senior royal. In light of all that has happened, especially the recent Oprah Winfrey interview which took place at a time when Prince Philip's health was critical, it is a move whose generosity cannot be overstated.
With the ice now broken between Harry and his brother, and the Queen trying to keep Harry in the picture quite literally, it seems it is now up to Harry to decide whether or not to reconcile. At the time of the Oprah interview, the Queen had said in a statement, “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan. The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members.”
It seems that for the Queen at least, Harry is still her grandson, with or without the titles he may have once carried. With the death of a beloved family member and the impending birth of Harry's second child, will the royal family decide to let bygones be bygones and come together as a family once again?
