According to the Us Weekly news of this Wednesday, December 16, Prince William and Prince Harry have taken a stand together about an explosive interview with their mother, Lady Diana.
They are sticking together. Nine months after their cold and distant greetings on Commonwealth Day, the Duke of Sussex’s final engagement as a senior member of England’s Royal Family, Prince Harry and Prince William are stepping up to the plate in the investigation of Lady Diana’s confessional interview, broadcast in 1995 on the BBC’s Panorama programme. “William is asking for answers and is determined to get to the bottom of things and find out the truth,” said a source close to the two brothers in the columns of the American magazine Us Weekly on Wednesday, December 16.
Remember, in this interview with journalist Martin Bashir – now accused of manipulating the Princess of Hearts – Lady Diana spoke openly about her life in the Windsor-Mountbatten clan, including her infidelities and those of her husband, Prince Charles. Confessions that had embarrassed the Crown and which, more than two decades after the fact, continue to have an impact on the monarchy. “For William, this particular interview is still very brutal,” continued the relative of Prince Charles’ sons and his ex-wife, “Harry is angry about the interview.” As a result, Prince Harry and Prince William renewed contact, leading to the belief that a fraternal reconciliation is imminent. “The investigation had a positive effect on the relationship between William and Harry. They have bonded and talk more frequently on Zoom and WhatsApp.”
Peace is in the air
A glimmer of hope, especially with the approach of the end of the year celebrations during which the members of the royal family will be dispersed, contrary to the tradition that would like to gather them at Sandringham, as every year. “William has accepted the reasons for Harry’s departure from the royal family and is happy to see his brother so well installed”, concludes the informant, still with Us Weekly.
The American edition of Vanity Fair magazine already hinted at a reconciliation between the brothers, with a relative saying that their relationship is “much better than it was”. In cold weather for several months now, Prince Harry and Prince William could well celebrate Christmas together, by videoconference. Our colleagues on the other side of the Atlantic said that the Sussex “sent Christmas presents to the Cambridge family.” Even from the afterlife, Lady Diana was able to reunite her two sons.
