Harry and William "Put Aside Their Differences" to Sign Off on Princess Diana Statue

Their cousin has been “playing peacemaker.”

Prince Harry and Prince William (opens in new tab) have reportedly managed to put aside their differences to sign off on the design for Princess Diana’s statue, which will be unveiled at Kensington Palace this summer.

According to The Sun (opens in new tab), there are still questions about whether William and Harry will actually come together for the statue’s unveiling, with royal officials previously thinking the chances of them reuniting in the wake of Harry’s bombshell Oprah interview (opens in new tab) were slim. But the brothers are said to be determined not to let personal issues (opens in new tab) get in the way of their commitment to honor their mother’s memory.

“It will have been signed off by William and Harry, that much I do know,” a source says. “I know he [sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley] did work closely with the boys and I think it will be incredible.”

The Sun (opens in new tab) also reports that William and Harry’s cousin Zara Tindall and her husband, Mike Tindall, have been “playing peacemakers” between the brothers over the past year. That said, there are continued reports that these two aren’t in a great place, with an Us Weekly (opens in new tab) source most recently saying “William was left reeling” after Gayle King told CBS This Morning that conversations between him and Harry weren’t productive.

“He says it was a cheap shot to leak details of their private call and that he twisted the truth,” the source said, adding that William “now feels uncomfortable” talking to Harry on the phone because “he’s putting himself at risk of the same thing happening again.”

Meanwhile, the Queen reportedly wants to keep fallout from Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell Oprah interview in the family, but William is itching to address the Sussexes’ claims (opens in new tab).
