PRINCE Harry was reunited with brother William for two hours after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral — sparking hopes of peace between them.
Charles had crunch talks with his warring sons after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral — and insiders say it is just what Philip would have wanted.
The three met up away from the cameras following Saturday’s televised service. They remained together for two hours at Windsor Castle as they mingled with family members on its Quadrangle.
It is understood Charles and William grilled Harry on his role within the Royal Family as the pair prepare for a crunch summit to decide the future of the Monarchy in the coming weeks.
It comes as it was claimed Harry wrote Prince Charles a “deeply personal note” ahead of his homecoming for Philip’s funeral – but the father and son have reportedly not yet patched up their fractured relationship.
Sources close to the Duke said he has been “forced to write letters” after a “complete communication breakdown” with his father.
The notes are said to have “outlined his reasons for leaving” his position to live in California with mum-to-be Meg and their one-year-old son Archie, while promising to “respect the institution”.

LEAKED CONVERSATIONS (CONTINUED…)
Vanity Fair claims William spent some “time alone” with Harry walking around the Queen’s private gardens after the service on Saturday.
It also claims Prince Charles is “desperate” for a reconciliation with his son while William is more “hesitant”. A source added: “William needs to know he can trust Harry and that private conversations will stay private.”
The source also said William and other family members “have some very strong feelings about some of the things Harry and Meghan said on Oprah”.
They added: “Things need to be talked through, but this was not the occasion and everyone respected that.
“It’s going to take more than a wake to sort things out, but this is hopefully a start.”
It comes after reports that Prince William needs to know any future talks with his brother will stay private after Gayle King revealed their family chats weren’t productive.
According to Vanity Fair, one family friend said Harry was met with frostiness from his relatives after the 90-minute explosive chat.
It is thought the family were upset that Meghan’s pal Ms King revealed Harry had spoken to his brother and Prince Charles after the interview – but that the talks were “unproductive”.
One source said: “Harry was out in the cold after Oprah and then when details of private family conversations were leaked to Gayle King it was the final straw.
“Some family members cannot believe what he has done, but there is a feeling that with the Duke’s death and the family coming together, conversations need to be had.”

“Obviously after the worldwide fallout of the Oprah interview trust has to be rebuilt,” a senior royal insider told the Mail Online.
“There was no official wake after the funeral, but Charles, William and Harry took the opportunity to speak and catch up face to face after many months apart.
“They were only able to spend a short time together outdoors given Covid restrictions and also without staff, including senior courtiers, overhearing what was being said.
“It was important to Charles and William that they were both there together.
“It means nothing spoken about can be misconstrued in the future.”
