With tensions between the royal family and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at an all-time high, distant royal brothers Prince William and Prince Harry are set to reunite in a few months.

The pair are set to mark what would’ve been their mother, Princess Diana’s 60th birthday in July with the unveiling of a statue of the late Princess of Wales which was commissioned by the brothers in 2017.

It will mark the first time the brothers will have seen each other face-to-face since Harry was last in the UK in March 2020 prior to his and wife Meghan Markle’s departure as senior royals.

The Duke of Sussex spoke about his strained relationship with his elder brother in the explosive sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey which aired last Sunday in the US.

“As I said before, I love William to bits,” he said. “We’ve been through hell together and we have a shared experience, but we are on different paths.”

In the aftermath of the interview, after Buckingham Palace made a statement on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen, Prince William spoke out about the tell-all.

He was asked during a public appearance if he had spoken to his brother at all.

No, I haven’t spoken to him yet, but I will do,” he said.

The same reporter also asked, “Is the royal family a racist family?” To which William responded, “We are very much not a racist family.”

One of the most bombshell revelations in the interview was when Meghan alleged there were conversations between Harry and other family members about how “dark” baby Archie’s skin would be when he’s born.

“In those months when I was pregnant all around the same time, we had in tandem the conversation he wouldn’t be given security, wouldn’t be given a title and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born,” Meghan said, which left interviewer Oprah shocked.

“What?” Oprah said with dismay over her face “And who is having that conversation with you?”

However, both Meghan and Harry refused to state who said this as “it would be very damaging to them.”
