Princes Harry, William come together for Diana Award ceremony — but don’t actually meet

Prince Harry and Prince William came together this week at the Diana Award ceremony, an organization that honors their late mother’s charitable legacy, but didn’t actually meet in person. 

William spoke in a prerecorded message at the beginning of the virtual ceremony, congratulating the winners, which he said showed the “power of young people to inspire meaningful change.”

He continued, “And to everyone watching, all these stories remind us why organizations like The Diana Award are so important. It is a reminder that when we invest in young people, when we provide them with the tools and opportunities to make a difference, they can truly change the world. A belief shared by my mother, and one I am proud to continue in her name.”

Later in the ceremony, Harry interviewed a 2021 Diana and Legacy Award recipient and introduced some of the winners. 

The two brothers last met in person at King Charles III’s coronation, which Harry attended alone while Meghan Markle stayed back in California with their kids Archie and Lilibet. 

Prince William and Prince Harry, seen here at the unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue at Kensington Palace in 2021, haven’t spoken in “a while,” Harry said earlier this year. 

They were also brought together in tragedy last year when their grandmother Queen Elizabeth II died. 

Harry and William delighted royal those grieving when they appeared as a foursome with Markle and Kate Middleton at Windsor Castle. 

Though once close, the brothers’ relationship has been strained for some time, which Harry has opened up about in his memoir “Spare” and his Netflix docuseries with Markle “Harry & Meghan.” 

“But I look forward to, I look forward to us being able to find peace,” he said. 

William and Harry speaking about their late mother may bring to mind the poignant images of the two young princes walking side-by-side behind Diana’s coffin after they lost her to a car crash at the tender ages of 15 and 12 in 1997.
