According to reports, Prince Harry and William are attempting to bury the hatchet, which analysts believe will require a considerable period of time.
While the two princes met for the first time in more than a year at Prince Philip’s funeral, a source said there is still a lot of water under the bridge.
“I think it’s a good start and it was lovely to see but this whole argument runs so deep, I don’t think there is any quick fix,”
a family friend spoke to PEOPLE of their reunion.
According to insiders, there is a lot of work to do before the two are on the same page again.
“Knowing family, it can mend a bit and then can slip back a bit,”
said a royal insider.
Meanwhile, royal historian Robert Lacey, author of the bestselling biography Battle of Brothers, said,

“As we saw, they could have walked side-by-side quite happily after all. What pleased me afterward was that it all seemed so totally natural, and they drifted to each other like the old days,”
