A poignant moment recorded at Prince Philip’s funeral was when Prince Harry and Prince William walked together and were seen speaking to each other.
Due to the rift between the Princes, they were separated during the walk to church for their grandfather’s funeral, with their cousin Peter Phillips between them.
However, after the funeral, the brothers had a moment together.
While walking, Prince Harry told Prince William that grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral was “what he would have wanted”, a lip reader has claimed.
As they removed their black face masks, lip readers claim William told his brother: “Yes it [the funeral] was great, wasn’t it.”
Harry, according to the Daily Express, then replied: “It was as he wanted.”
Body language expert Judi James told Dailystar that the Duke of Sussex “looked nervous” in the chapel.
But, when he stepped outside with his brother, he “showed the world” his unity with William in an interaction that Judi claimed did not look staged.
Kate Middleton also showed a “sign of affection” towards her brother-in-law as they walked back towards the castle.
“Kate turned her head towards Harry at an angle to suggest pleasure and affection, but soon stepped back to allow the two brothers to walk off together talking,” Judi said.
The interaction between Harry and William has been called an “extremely significant moment” by a royal expert.
It has since been reported the princes were able to spend some time together in Windsor following Philip’s funeral.
The funeral was the first time Harry has been seen in public with his brother and other members of the Royal Family since his and wife Meghan Markle’s explosive Oprah Winfrey interview.
