Insider reveals which royal ‘requested’ cousin stand between Harry and William at funeral - 7NEWS.com.au

Prince William reportedly asked for Peter Phillips to stand between him and Harry during Prince Philip’s funeral procession.

The brothers were separated by their cousin as they escorted their grandfather’s coffin to St George’s Chapel in Windsor on Saturday.

It was the first time the siblings had appeared together in public since March last year when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down as senior members of the royal family.

A Palace insider has now claimed that William asked for Princess Anne’s son to act as a buffer between him and his once-close brother during the funeral procession.

Harry has also experienced “a great deal of frostiness from many relatives” since returning to the UK, the source told The Mail on Sunday.

The Duke of Sussex raced to London following his grandfather’s death on April 9 and completed a five-day quarantine at Frogmore cottage before the service on Saturday.

“Ironically the only one who has expressed any sympathy towards him is Prince Andrew,” the source claimed.

“He knows from Sarah Ferguson – and now first hand – how it feels to be the outsider, which Harry very much is.”

The source also said multiple members of the royal family have refused to speak with Harry, claiming there is “little sympathy for him after what he and Meghan said on Oprah.”

“As far as the others are concerned, there is a deep sense of protection towards the Queen and resentment towards Harry.

“They are still very upset,” the source added.

“‘They are putting on a united front for the Queen. They all think he has behaved appallingly.’

Royal reconciliation?

However hopes of a royal reconciliation have been sparked after Harry was seen talking with William and the Duchess of Cambridge following the funeral service.

The trio walked together for several minutes before the Duchess dropped back to allow the brothers to converse in private.

It’s understood that Harry will return to the United States early this week to support his pregnant wife Meghan as she prepares to give birth to the couple’s second child.
