Prince William name-checks Harry in rare shine of unity in speech praising friends for Diana statue

PRINCE William generously name-checked Harry in a rare show of unity as he thanked friends for their late mum’s statue.

Despite the strain on their relationship since Megxit and the Oprah Winfrey interview, he said the brothers were “both happy” with it.

Harry, 37, returned to Britain for the Princess Diana statue ceremony in July, but missed the private reception at Kensington Palace held to thank donors and friends.

But Wills, 39, stepped in and spoke on behalf of himself and his brother.

A source said: “It was very intimate and sweet.

“There was a real family feel as many of Diana’s 17 godchildren were also there.

“William made a brilliant speech saying thank you from him and Harry and how happy they both were with the statue.

“He mentioned Harry by name. The brothers are barely on speaking terms but it’s clear the Princess Di statue has done some good.”

Harry flew back without Meghan, 40, for the unveiling at the Palace’s Sunken Garden on what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday.

Duke of Cambridge William was joined for the event by wife Kate, 39.

The original reception was cancelled due to Covid and rearranged for last week.

Kensington Palace did not want to comment.
