Harry, 37, and his wife Meghan, 40, announced two years ago that they would leave their royal roles behind. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex famously revealed they would work to become financially independent of the Royal Family. The couple, who at the time said they would divide their time between the UK and North America, now live in Montecito, California. Meghan has not been back to England since leaving her role, while Harry returned on two occasions last year.

The Duke came back for the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip, in April, and again in July as he and William unveiled a statue of their late mother, Princess Diana.

However, the two brothers had a “tense moment”, as they paid tribute to their mother, Robert Hardman claimed in a recent documentary.

The journalist and author was interviewed for the Channel 5 documentary ‘2021: The Queen’s Terrible Year’.

Speaking of Harry and William’s meeting, he said: “It did bear the hallmarks of quite a sort of tense moment.”

The Diana statue was unveiled in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace, the former home of the royal sometimes dubbed the ‘People’s Princess’.

The occasion marked what would have been the 60th birthday of Diana, who was killed in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

Harry and William were seen chatting and smiling at the memorial event to their late mother.

They also released a joint statement about Diana’s remarkable life, paying tribute to her “love, strength and character”.

According to The Daily Telegraph’s associate editor Camilla Tominey, it was apparent that the brothers still needed to “work on their relationship” following the unveiling.

Speaking for the Channel 5 film, she said: “People were hoping this was going to be the moment that the brothers reconciled.

“I think there is more work to be done to that relationship.”

Harry and William were also seen talking outside St George’s Chapel in Windsor after Philip’s funeral.

The sombre occasion was the first time the brothers had met since the departure of the Sussexes.

Meghan did not make the trip over from the US with Harry as she was heavily pregnant with the couple’s second child, Lilibet, at the time.

In the build-up to the Sussexes leaving their royal roles, newspapers reported that a rift had opened up between Harry and William.

Harry addressed the apparent friction between them back in 2019 in the ITV documentary, ‘Harry & Meghan: An African Journey’.

He told the journalist Tom Bradby he and William were on “different paths” and that as brothers they had “good days and bad days”.

The Duke of Sussex made similar comments as he and Meghan sat down for their bombshell chat with US talk show host Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.

The couple’s in-depth conversation with the TV legend, broadcast on ITV and CBS, featured a string of shocking claims from the pair about the pressures of life as a senior royal.

Harry again said he and William were on “different paths” but that he loved his brother “to bits”.

‘2021: The Queen’s Terrible Year’ is available to stream on My5.
