The pair performed their last royal engagement together in March 2020, although they did not speak or make eye contact during the event.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex joined William and Kate at Westminster Abbey for a Commonwealth Day Service.
Harry previously told ITV that he and William were ‘on different paths’ in response to reports about the brothers falling out.
And Prince William was said to be left ‘reeling’ after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle conducted a tell-all interview with Oprah earlier this year.
The Duke of Cambridge subsequently told reporters “we are not a racist family” after the couple claimed a senior royal asked how dark Archie’s skin would be before he was born.
But the Queen has now signed off on plans which will see the brothers reunited at Philip’s funeral.
