Meanwhile, Lacey said Simmons claimed William and Harry promised “they would keep to that”.

The brothers apparently “high-fived each other and gave their mother a big cuddle”.

Next week, Harry and the Duke of Cambridge are expected to reunite for the unveiling of a Diana statue.

The statue at Kensington Palace will honour what would have been her 60th birthday.

Diana tragically died on August 31, 1997, following a car crash in Paris.
