Prince William and Harry are reportedly putting their differences aside to "respect" their late mother, Princess Diana, at her statue unveiling on July 1st.

Despite the brothers supposedly feuding and communicating by "minimal" texts, they are set to leave Kensington Palace together, walk to the statue and deliver their own speeches, claim The Sun.

Speaking of their first meeting since Philip's funeral in April, the source told the publication: "Harry and William have only communicated by text since the Duke of Edinburgh's funeral.

"There have not been any personal chats or proper talks, just a very brief and minimal exchange of text messages.

It was added: "The relationship is still very much strained, and there's no sign yet that there will be any sort of coming together any time soon."

It was added by a source close to the statue planning that Charles will "leave the boys to it" at the event.

The statue unveiling is set to take place on July 1, which would have been Princess Diana's 60th birthday, at the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace.

Prince Harry and Prince William first commissioned the new statue in 2017 but are said to have since suffered a bitter fallout.

The brothers first reportedly butted heads over Harry's decision to step down as a senior royal with Meghan in March 2020.

William was then allegedly left angered by the Oprah interview the couple did in April this year.

Meanwhile, a royal expert told OK! earlier this week that Meghan Markle won't attend the unveiling of the new Diana statue.

"No one I've spoken to believes Meghan will attend," he says. "She's just had a baby, and that's a perfect reason to want to stay where she is. No one could criticise her for that, although I'm sure people will," Duncan Larcombe said.

Earlier this month, it was also reported that Harry would "fly in and out of the UK on the same day" following the memorial.
