“The resurrection of the bullying allegations against Meghan in the publication of a new book, the controversy over whether the Queen should be allowed to use Lilibet, as she was called by her confidants, for her daughter and Harry’s attacks on his upbringing in the interview with Oprah on her mental health series, all of them are extremely unhelpful.
“They will be together on July 1st to unveil the statue of their beloved mother.
“It may only be the beginning of a reconciliation, but there is still a long way to go.”
Meanwhile, Mr Fitzwilliams said a reconciliation between the brothers may not take place until the 25th anniversary of Diana’s death next year.
He added, “Who can tell Harry something meaningful if it immediately hits the media?
“It seems more likely to me that, if it happens, some kind of reconciliation could take place next year on the 25th anniversary of Diana’s death.”
Meanwhile, the brothers will reportedly give separate speeches at Thursday’s event.
