However, while he and William are expected to stand together, there will be no joint speech.

For royal watchers, this will surely be the biggest sign yet that their rift is not yet healed.

A source told The Sun that although it’s “very important” to the brothers that they are there, healing their relationship is a “long way off” right now.

“There is, of course, hope the memory of Diana can repair their relationship but that seems a long way off right now. The brothers will be physically together for the ceremony but want to make their own personal addresses.”

The brothers will be physically together for the ceremony but want to make their own personal addresses.

The source added that each of the brothers have “insisted” on preparing their own speech to mark the occasion.

They also highlighted that their body language “will suggest all is not well” between the pair.

There are also fears that they “won’t present a united front”.

So will Meghan fly over with Harry?

It’s not thought that the Duchess of Sussex, who is due to give birth to her second baby in June, will fly over to the UK with her husband.

And it’s not because of the baby, an insider suggested.

It’s because she doesn’t want to overshadow the princes.

“She feels this is William and Harry’s event and would not want to overshadow them,” she said.
