What did Harry say to William after Prince Philip's funeral? Brothers exchange words on Kate Middleton's urging
After the ceremony was over, Prince William and Prince Harry have been spotted speaking to one another, as they made their way out of the chapel and toward Windsor castle
Although there was overwhelming speculation on whether the estranged royal brothers, princes William and Harry, will talk at all after they see each other at Prince Philip's funeral held at St George's Chapel in London, on Saturday, April 17, viewers watching the live stream of the ceremony were met with a big surprise at the very end.
After the ceremony was over, Prince William and Prince Harry were spotted speaking to one another, as they made their way out of the chapel and towards Windsor castle. This happened after the Queen was escorted to her ride, being the first one to leave the chapel. After that, the rest of the guests slowly made their way out of the funeral venue. As they made their way out of the chapel, Harry was seen chatting with Kate Middleton as William walked a few paces ahead. However, the Duchess of Cambridge stepped away and let the two reportedly feuding brothers exchange a few words. It seemed like she was playing a mediator among them.
Since there were no microphones around and only the video of them talking was captured, there is no way to know what one said to the other. William's body language was that of a shrug which might suggest that there might still be a long way to go before the two can resolve their differences.
Harry and William sat opposite each other
William and Harry sat opposite one another in St George’s Chapel, as the brothers bid farewell to their grandfather. During the ceremony, they did not exchange a single word, which seemed to be the norm followed by other guests at the funeral as well, out of respect for the deceased. Since Meghan Markle was forced to give the funeral a miss due to her advanced stage of pregnancy, Harry sat alone while William was joined in a bubble arrangement with his wife.
Since the pair have had a difficult relationship in recent years, coming face to face with each other in more than a year on Saturday, the Queen even ordered the two not to walk shoulder to shoulder during the procession as they originally should have. Instead, they were separated by Peter Philips, their cousin and the son of their aunt Princess Anne.
