The rift continues. According to royal professional Robert Lacey, Prince William and Prince Harry didn’t get alongside at their grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral in April.

Following the funeral, a supply informed Us Weekly solely that the royals have a protracted approach to go with regards to mending their bond.
