Prince Harry’s nod to brother Prince William in new video ahead of Diana statue unveiling


Prince Harry seemed to take a step toward reconciliation with his brother William when he addressed him at an awards event honoring young people’s “humanitarianism”

The Duke of Sussex has returned to the UK for a special ceremony commemorating what would have been Princess Diana’s 60th birthday – the second time since leaving the Royal Family.

Harry’s mention of his brother in the video comes amid rumors that the brothers are still feuding.

Before the inauguration of Diana’s monument, he talked movingly about his mother’s conviction in the potential of young people to “change the world” in the video.

Harry told young people after a virtual ceremony for The Diana Award, which recognizes those who create and sustain positive change: “I’m truly honoured to be celebrating your work, your commitment to change making and the vital role that you’ve taken on representing a new generation of humanitarianism.

“Later this week, my brother and I are recognising what would have been our mum’s 60th birthday, and she would be so proud of you all for living authentic life with purpose and with compassion for others.


“Our mum believed that young people have the power to change the world.

“She believed in your strength because she saw it day in and day out and in the faces of young people exactly like you, she witnessed a boundless enthusiasm and passion.

“And I too see those same values shine through as it has done for 21 years now, The Diana Award carries her legacy forward by putting young people at the centre of our future – and this has never been more important.”

“And Meg and I fundamentally believe that our world is at the cusp of change, real change for the good of all.

“But the question before us is what that change will look like.”

Harry went on to say that the Princess of Wales would have been “proud” of the more than 300 people who received the Diana Award in a virtual ceremony.

The Diana Award is a renowned honor targeted towards young people aged nine to 25 for their social action or humanitarian efforts.

The duke told the internet audience in a pre-recorded message, “Never be afraid to do what’s right. Stand up for what you believe in and trust that when you live by truth and in service to others, people will see that just as they did with my mum.”

The gesture to William comes amid reports that the royal brothers’ relationship has deteriorated since Harry and Meghan made a series of shocking assertions about the Royal Family.

Duncan Larcombe, a royal expert, told to OK! about their bond. The brothers will meet in person ahead of the inauguration of their late mother Princess Diana’s monument.

“It’s highly likely that William and Harry will meet in private before the statue’s unveiling,” he said.

“Royals never attend an official engagement by turning up out of the blue and Harry and William will both know that all eyes will be on them.

“They will want to try to put on a united front. They will have plenty of time on the morning of Thursday so I think it’s likely they’ll have breakfast and try and smooth things over. At least get to a point where they can stand to be together.”

Harry is quarantining himself at his Frogmore Cottage residence in preparation for the installation of the monument commissioned by Diana’s sons to honor their mother’s memory.

The celebration at Kensington Royal will be scaled down, according to a palace spokesman, and there is no assurance that Kate Middleton will attend.
