Perhaps the most visible sign of the canyon between them will be their placement at grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral. It’s been reported that the princes did not stand shoulder to shoulder behind their grandfather’s coffin but instead the queen herself has placed a third party between them.

Peter Phillips will be a physical block between the brothers, although insiders claim the odd arrangement should not be interpreted as a sign that the brothers refused to walk alongside each other.

A Buckingham Palace spokesman said, “This is a funeral… we will not be drawn into those perceptions of drama. The arrangements have been agreed and they reflect Her Majesty’s wishes.”

Insiders did admit, however, that the reported feud has taken up, “much thought and energy,” in Lord Chamberlain’s Office, which is responsible for the arrangements.

One spilled, “Everyone is walking on eggshells so as not to exacerbate the situation. To be fair, both William and Harry have made clear that they wish to focus on mourning their grandfather and do not want anything to get in the way of that.”

They added, “But it has made everyone doubly nervous about saying anything that could be remotely construed of being critical of the other side. It’s been a minefield.”
