Prince Harry will fix rift with Prince William for Diana’s 60th, expert believes

Prince Harry has openly acknowledged a rift with Prince William in a bombshell interview with his wife Meghan Markle and US chat show host Oprah Winfrey.

But the princes are likely to soon be reconciled, according to ITV royal editor Chris Ship who was discussing the fallout of the TV tell-all on the podcast Royal Rota.

In the interview, Harry is candid about his relationship with his brother and tells Oprah: "The relationship is space at the moment.

"And you know, time heals all things, hopefully."

Harry also told Oprah he loved William "to bits" and said they'd "been through hell together".

Producer Lizzie Robinson says Harry seemed "reluctant" to talk more about William, commenting: "He said that one line and he wasn't going to go into any more detail.

"William, out on an engagement in a school in east London today, was actually asked by a reporter there if he had spoken to his brother since the Oprah interview."

A clip shows William crossing the playground and saying: "No, I haven't spoken to him yet but I will do."

Chris said he had heard that the brothers would be trying to reconcile soon and said there was "movement" in that direction.

He said: "It rather suggests that they know that they know this interview was so big that one of the positives that might come out of it is that they will start talking again and might even – in time – repair that relationship."

Lizza added: "Wouldn't it be lovely if in July, for what would have been Diana's 60th birthday, if they could be there together for the unveiling of that statue and heal some of those wounds?"

"I still think that is the plan," confirmed Chris.

William and Harry commissioned the statue together in 2017 and it will be unveiled in the gardens of Kensington Palace on July 1 this year.

The work was created by artist Ian Rank-Broadley and it will be placed in the Sunken Garden.

This comes after an insider told US Weekly that Prince William and Kate Middleton were "in shock" about the interview and wished the matters had been discussed "privately".
