Kate Middleton to help William and Harry put on united front at Diana memorial

The Duchess of Cambridge will reportedly help her husband Prince William and his brother Harry to 'put on a united front' at the unveiling of a statue of their late mother Princess Diana.

The royal brothers have not properly spoken to each other in recent months but the pair have agreed respite when they reunite at Kensington Palace next Thursday, reports the Mirror.

The ceremony is taking place on what would have been the Princess of Wales's 60th birthday.

It is expected that the trio will be walking in together but the brothers will be making separate speeches to pay tribute to Diana's legacy.

The speeches are likely to also thank sculpter Ian Rank-Broadley for his talent and dedication to the project that has been in the works since 2017, 20 years on from Diana's tragic death.

“The Duchess has seen this project evolve from its conception and now to the finished article and undoubtedly wants to be there to support her husband," a royal source said.

He added: "No doubt there will be tensions between the Cambridges and Harry, but they all recognise that despite the obvious and deep rooted issues between them, they want the day to be solely about the Princess of Wales’s enduring legacy.”

This will be the second time that William and Kate have met Harry after he and Meghan Markle took part in the explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The Duchess of Sussex also revealed that she had suicidal thoughts during her pregnancy with their son Archie, who is now two.

  • William and Kate did not meet Harry after Philip funeral over leak fears, author claims

The Cambridges and Harry were seen exchanging words after Prince Philip's funeral in April.

But it was recently alleged by a leading royal historian that William and Kate didn't speak to Harry further due to fears of the conversation being leaked.

In his book Battle of Brothers, Robert Lacey writes: “They told friends that they could see no point in talking to Harry, since any discussion of substance would go straight back to Meghan to be leaked out via Oprah [Winfrey] or some other tentacle of the Sussex network.”
