Despite making many appearances together and sharing grief, Harry and William don’t appear to be severing their ties, sources said

LONDON, ENGLAND: The fractured relationship between Prince William and Prince Harry appeared to be mending as they made a rare appearance together to inspect flowers outside Windsor Palace. However, some wounds were reopened on Saturday night, September 17, after the two belligerent brothers opted not to travel in the same car after guarding the Queen’s coffin together, with no “meaningful approach”.

A Sunday Times report claimed the royal brothers were no closer to their relationship despite spending more time in close proximity. Over the past week, the duo have had many rare appearances together, including a walk behind the Queen’s coffin in Westminster.

After guarding the Queen’s coffin at Westminster Hall, the brothers decided to return home separately, despite living a few miles apart. While the Prince of Wales traveled back with his eldest cousin Peter Phillips, the Duke of Sussex chose to be in the company of Zara Tindall, whose husband Mike reportedly dubbed him a ‘b***end’ at the Platinum Jubilee.

According to sources close to the brothers, “The joint performances require effort. But I don’t think it goes much beyond that. There were some awkward moments this week. I definitely don’t feel like there’s a deeper, meaningful approach, or a sense that this is all: things are being fixed.

The report also claimed that the two brothers met on Harry’s 38th birthday on Thursday September 15, but only exchanged a few words through the car windows. Harry was driving through the Windsor estate with his wife Meghan Markle when he bumped into William. After passing each other, the duo turned back to greet each other. However, they stayed in their cars and decided to roll down their windows and chat for a while.

A friend of the Sussexes said: “They are very sensitive to how everything is happening and very much see the bigger picture, not just from a personal perspective but from a family perspective. Meghan isn’t afraid to toss a hand in hand here and there a grenade, but now there’s no more throwing toys out of the stroller. Her view is, ‘Let’s get up and do it — we’re going to be where we need to be, and we’re not going to be where we don’t need to be.'”

Another source close to Harry said that Harry was “solely focused on the Queen” and not concerned with improving his relationship with his brother. However, the relationship between the two is expected to continue to deteriorate as the Duke of Sussex was devastated to discover his beloved grandmother’s initials had been removed from the shoulder of his royal uniform. He was devastated to find Prince Andrew still had her.

A friend told the newspaper: “He is heartbroken. Removing his grandmother’s initials feels very deliberate.” The ER initials are traditionally only worn by those “in the service of the monarch,” but they were removed from Harry’s uniform when he decided to step down from royal duties and moving to the US in January 2020.
