According to the Daily Telegraph, William will pay a private visit to the statue at Kensington Palace with wife Kate Middleton and their three kids – Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

The Diana statue will be put up within the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace, where she spent a lot of time.

This will be the first time William and Harry have come together since their grandfather Prince Philip‘s funeral in April.

Recent reports have said the brothers may not heal their rift during Harry’s UK visit.

A source told The Sunday Times: “Neither are offering an olive branch.

“I fear it will be the same as at Prince Philip’s funeral, a nod of recognition, and that’s about it.”

Meghan alleged there were ‘concerns’ and ‘conversations’ within the family about how dark their son Archie’s skin would be before he was born.

The duchess said these alleged conversations were with Harry, who then told her.
