After not seeing each other for over a year, Prince Harry and Prince William reunited over the weekend at their grandfather, Prince Philip’s funeral. The brothers were seen talking with Kate Middleton, following the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

“It is often said that funerals are moments of reconciliation and that is a sight that, to be honest, that many people really wanted to see. Not least those in the family themselves,” Tom Bradby, friends of the brothers and ITV journalist, said.

The Princes joined other senior Royals in the walking behind of Prince Philip’s casket in a procession to St. George’s Chapel. Although, the brothers did not stand next to each other. Peter Phillips, son of Princess Anne, walked between the men. They also did not walk into the ceremony together. William was joined by Peter while Harry walked with David Armstrong-Jones, son of Princess Margaret.

“This is a funeral and we are not going to be drawn into perceptions of drama. The arrangements have been agreed and represent Her Majesty’s wishes,” a spokesman of the Palace said ahead of the funeral, regarding the “practical change” in the procession order.

Harry, who has been living in the U.S. with Meghan Markle and their son, flew home to the U.K. last week to quarantine before attending the funeral. Meghan was “advised by her physician not to travel” as she is pregnant with the couple’s second child.

Last month, Harry and Meghan sat down in an interview with Oprah and revealed that they had a strained relationship with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
