This Picture Of William And Harry At Diana's Statue Unveiling Has Us In Tears

We knew we'd be emotional at the memorial for Princess Diana, especially knowing that Prince William and Prince Harry would be reunited and maybe have a chance to make things right between them. But this photo of the brothers at the statue unveiling has us feeling more feelings than we bargained for.

The rift between William and Harry has only seemed to get wider and wider as of late, and neither of the princes has shown any signs of forgiving or forgetting. Some followers of the royal family hoped that the two would find time to heal and to talk it out after the death of their grandfather, Prince Philip. However, it looked like even after seeing each other at Philip's funeral, the bad blood between them remained bad.

But anyone who pays any attention to the royal family that if there's one thing both princes can agree on, it's their love for their mother, who died nearly 24 years ago. Which is why we're sobbing right now, TBH.

The Princess Diana statue brought William and Harry together

On what would have been Princess Diana's 60th birthday, the memorial statue Prince William and Prince Harry had commissioned was unveiled, and this photo of the two of them looking up at it is so, so touching.

Standing on either side of the statue, the brothers have matching postures (and matching bald patches) as they gaze at the new memorial, which is installed in the Sunken Garden. When they announced the commission, William and Harry said they hoped the sculpture would "recognize her positive impact" and help others "reflect on her life and legacy," according to the BBC.

There's never a bad time to reflect on Princess Diana's legacy if you ask us, but what really has us emotional is thinking about how the brothers are feeling right now. "Today, on what would have been our Mother's 60th birthday, we remember her love, strength, and character — qualities that made her a force for good around the world, changing countless lives for the better," they said in a rare joint statement (via Town and Country). "Every day, we wish she were still with us, and our hope is that this statue will be seen forever as a symbol of her life and her legacy."


Photos show Prince William and Prince Harry looking relaxed

We aren't the only ones who found the photo of Prince William and Prince Harry looking at the statue of their mother particularly moving. In fact, body language expert Jess Ponce III told Nicki Swift in an interview that he thought the brothers' demeanors at the unveiling showed the differences in their personalities and how those differences can work well together.

"Someone who is more playful, expressive, and 'in the moment' has a lot to give to someone who is more 'appropriate,' measured, and forward-thinking, and vice versa," Ponce shared. "They are not opposites, rather just distinct in their approaches. When joined together for a purpose, as we saw today, the two can be great assets to one another and inspiring to those around them."

Other body language experts made similar observations, and some even hinted the brothers may be back to their old selves. "Although it was clearly a very powerful and emotional event for both William and Harry I think it's very obvious especially as a body language expert that the two brothers still have a very very strong bond between each other," Darren Staunton said in Just Jared. Meanwhile, expert Judi James told the U.K.'s Express, "What I love here is this is the old Harry and the old William." Could it really be so?

Prince William and Prince Harry may be ready to heal the divide

The good news is that Prince William and Prince Harry are ready to mend fences and put all this drama behind them. At least, that's what one anonymous source told Us Magazine. According to the insider, ever since the birth of Harry and Meghan Markle's second child, Lilibet Diana, the brothers have been ready to heal the divide.

"They didn't mend the bond at the funeral," the source told Us Magazine. "But since the baby, they want to move forward. Both brothers are ready to move past the rift and have a good relationship again."

We may not be body language experts ourselves, but looking through these photos and seeing the princes talk casually to each other, and even laugh, it certainly feels like that might be true. And it definitely feels fitting that the person to bring them back together, in the end, would be their mother, Princess Diana. Yep, we're definitely still crying.
