Here's Who Diffused the Tension Between Prince William and Prince Harry at Prince Philip's Funeral

Duchess Kate Middleton, Prince William‘s wife, helped diffuse the tension.

“They were very tense as they walked into that chapel,” a royal expert, Katie Nicholl, told ET. “As they came out of it, you could see some tension diffused. And I think that was largely down to the Duchess of Cambridge, who made a point of speaking to Harry and when she did that, you can see them visibly relax.”

If you missed it, a lip reader actually revealed what Prince Harry and Prince William said to each other while leaving the funeral service.

“It’s always been my understanding that behind the scenes, Kate has tried very hard to forge a rapprochement and act as a peacemaker between William and Harry,” she added. “She loves Harry. She says that she is the sister that he never had. She has been heartbroken to see them fall out, and I think she is one of the few people, one of the few family members who would actually be able to push the brothers together, which she did in a very subtle way, but was very effective.”

“I certainly think she played quite an important role in getting the brothers to the point where they were able to engage in a conversation, of course, in front of the world’s press. Everyone was watching,” she continued. “The focus of the day was absolutely rightly on the Duke of Edinburgh, this was about bidding him a fitting farewell and no one wanted there to be too much attention on William and Harry and this feud — but inevitably the world was watching.”
