Brothers Prince William and Prince Harry will be commemorating their mother Princess Diana with a statue unveiling today, on what would have been her 60th birthday.
Princes William and Harry have an “unspoken agreement” to park their feud in order to commemorate their mother Princess Diana – as they unite to unveil a statue in her memory today.
Both of Diana’s sons will be appearing at a small, intimate ceremony at Kensington Gardens on what would have been her 60th birthday.
Speaking on Lorraine, The Mirror’s Royal editor Russell Myers spoke about the brothers being “in contact” despite their feud, somewhat beginning to heal their rift in part thanks to England’s win against Germany in the Euros earlier this week.
However, while they are far from burying the hatchet, the duo are planning on joining forces for the sake of their mum.
He said: “I think both brothers are grown up enough to try and call the truce. I understand there’s been an unspoken agreement between the two of them to sort of park their differences for at least today, get on with the business in hand.
“Last year they spoke about representing and commemorating their mother’s life and legacy and that is exactly what it’s all about today.”
On what to expect at the ceremony, Myers said the event is “shrouded in secrecy” but said: “It’s in the revamped Sunken Garden here at Kensington Palace and that was Princess Diana’s favourite place in her former Royal home.
“The gardeners have been absolutely flat out, they’ve laid kilometres of turf, they’ve put 200 roses in, 100 of Forget Me Nots, her favourite flower.”
“We understand that the boys are going to be walking in together but will give separate speeches and no doubt, talking about their mother’s life, her legacy, her charity work, what she meant to the people around the world,” Myers added.
“It’s a very, very small, tight knit group here, the palace has said that that’s to do with Covid rules – read into that what you will.
“I think that the boys wanted a bit of a close knit group just a couple of members of Diana’s family, her brother Charles, sisters, Sarah and Jane, and a couple of the gardener’s hopefully we’ll be speaking too as well.
“Hopefully, it will go without a hitch, and it’s all about Diana, commemorating her on her 60th birthday today.”
