Princes William, Harry seen talking after Prince Philip's funeral

Feuding brothers Prince William and Prince Harry were seen talking to each other amiably after Prince Philip’s funeral.

Following the service Saturday morning, the estranged siblings walked and talked together alongside Kate Middleton as they made their way out of St. George’s Chapel.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s appearance echoed reports that she was slated to play “peacemaker” for her husband and his brother, who hadn’t seen each other since Harry and pregnant wife Meghan Markle stepped down as senior royals.

The brothers’ appearance post-funeral provided far different optics from the beginning of the day, when Harry, 36, and William, 38, marched in the royal procession solemnly, but not side-by-side, with their arms rigidly at their sides. They were separated by their cousin Peter Philips.

The two were also separated during the 50-minute church service.

“They know it is not about them on Saturday – it is about honoring their grandfather’s memory and supporting their grandmother,” a royal source previously told The Daily Telegraph. “I would be extremely surprised if that wasn’t front and center of both their minds. They will be keen to spend time together as a family, in the same time zone for once.”

Another source added, “The entire focus is on the Queen. No exceptions. A family unified.”

All eyes were on the brothers, as it was also the first time the public had seen them together since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex aired their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Markle, in the final months of pregnancy with the couple’s second child, remained at their California home under doctor’s orders. She was watching the services from home, a source confirmed, and the couple sent a memorial wreath created with local flowers.
