  • Prince Harry gave a nod to his brother, Prince William, in a touching video speech for the virtual Diana Awards Ceremony.

    Prince Harry has returned to the UK  and is currently self-isolating at Frogmore Cottage, with his cousin Princess Eugenie.

    He has returned to attend the statue unveiling for his mother, Princess Diana on the 1st of July to mark what would’ve been her 60th birthday, but Meghan has not accompanied him.

    Ahead of the memorial, Prince Harry gave a virtual speech at the Princess Diana Awards which celebrates young people’s humanitarianism.

    In his appearance, he made sure to mention his brother Prince William, despite reports of ongoing tension between the brothers since Harry stepped back from royal life and moved to his and Meghan’s new home in LA.

    The two will reunite for the first time since attending their grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral back in April.
