Scobie joined the Royally Obsessed podcast this week to discuss William & Harry’s unexpected conversations following Prince Philip’s funeral, but also—now that it has been reported that Harry is back in Montecito—when the brothers might see each other next.
“The next time might be very soon as we’ve got the Diana statue unveiling this summer,” Scobie says. “I don’t think it is July 1. I think they’re looking into date options at the moment, but that will certainly be another opportunity for the brothers to pick up where they left off.”
TBH, it makes sense. Pandemic aside, July 1 is right around the corner and with Harry and his wife Meghan Markle expecting the arrival of their baby girl in the coming months, it’s no doubt tough to predict any early summer travel plans.
As we know, the statue was commissioned by the princes in 2017 to mark the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death and as a way to “recognize her positive impact” on the world. It was delayed due to COVID-19, but has been created by artist Ian Rank-Broadley, a British sculptor whose portrait of Queen Elizabeth appears on all U.K. coins.
We’ll keep our calendars open, of course.
