About the possibility of a split, Prince William and Harry were seen cracking the ice and chatting amicably with each other at Prince Philip’s funeral on Saturday.
After burying Philip, the brothers were joined by the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, as they all marched back together like a single family from St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.
According to Victoria Arbiter, a CNN royal commentator, several of Philip’s loved ones opted not to climb into the vehicles waiting for them outside after the funeral.
“Having been separated in the Chapel they’re now able to come together which will be a comfort to the Queen,”
Arbiter tweeted on Saturday.
Harry and William walked separately behind Prince Philip’s coffin in the funeral procession, with cousin Peter Phillip stepping in between them.
The sat separately from each other within the Chapel due to the COVID-19 protocol of retaining social-distancing.
Since Prince Philip’s death, the royal family has gathered behind Queen Elizabeth, providing her with enough support and comfort in this difficult time.
