UPDATE: Since this story was published, it was reported that Prince Harry and Prince William have spoken.

It seems that Prince Harry and Prince William will be getting a reunion very soon.

The royal brothers, who have not spoken since that earth-shattering interview with Oprah, will be standing "side-by-side" this July in honor of their mother.

The news comes from the New York Post, who reported that the brothers will reunite for the unveiling of the Princess Diana memorial statue. Russell Myers, an expert reporter on the royal family, appeared on the UK morning show, Loraine, to say: "I can exclusively reveal that William is still committed, as is Harry, to get together on July 1 for the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue at Kensington Gardens.”

This announcement follows Oprah Winfrey's tell-all interview with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, where the couple discussed racism Markle faced within Buckingham Palace. When Prince William was asked if he had spoken to Prince Harry following the interview, the Duke of Cambridge (in an atypical gesture) responded, "No, I haven't spoken to him yet, but I will do."

In the revealing discussion with Oprah, Prince Harry also commented on how his separation from the royal family affected his relationship with his brother. He told Oprah, "I’m part of the system with them. I always have been...But I guess there is—I’m very aware of this—that my brother can’t leave that system. But I have.” The Duke of Sussex also added, "But I will always be there for him. I will always be there for my family. And, as I said, I’ve tried to help them to see what has happened.”

Although there has been some distance between the royal brothers, the two united back in 2017 to commission the memorial statue for their late mother, Princess Diana. The sculpture in her likeness will be revealed at the Kensington Gardens this July 1, on what would have been her 60th birthday.

We are looking forward to the brotherly get-together.
