  • In April this year, Prince Harry and Prince William reunited for the first time since Harry's move to California at Prince Philip's funeral.
  • In a recent article, royal historian and biographer Robert Lacey offered new insights into how the reunion went.
  • Lacey reports that things were still very tense between the brothers and that a source close to the royals told him, "the rage and anger between those two has grown so incredibly deep. Too many harsh and wounding things have been said."

Prince William and Prince Harry reunited for the first time in months this spring for Prince Philip's funeral, but the reunion didn't go well, it seems.

In a new article for the Daily Mail, royal historian and biographer Robert Lacey, author of Battle of Brotherswrote about the moment. Although Lacey said there was hope that the funeral would "bring the warring brothers together," things quickly took a bad turn and they were arguing "within minutes of the siblings getting inside the castle and beyond camera vision."

"They started quarrelling again," Lacey added.

Lacey also cited a family friend who described just how tense things were between Will and Harry at the funeral.

"There they were, at each other's throats as fiercely as ever," the royal source told Lacey. "The rage and anger between those two has grown so incredibly deep. Too many harsh and wounding things have been said."

According to Lacey, "there was no reconciliation" between the brothers when Harry was in the United Kingdom for Philip's funeral and their conflict "does not seem likely to end any time soon."

We can only hope, of course, that these reports aren't accurate and that the royals are able to mend their relationship while Harry is in the U.K. this month ahead of the unveiling of Princess Diana's memorial statue at Kensington Palace.
