Prince Harry and Prince William have arrived for Thursday’s unveiling of a statue of their late mother, Princess Diana, at Kensington Palace in London.
The royal brothers, whose relationship has been fractured in recent years, joined forces to honor Diana on what would have been her 60th birthday.
Due to COVID-19 protocols, the guest list was scaled back to only 15 people, including Diana’s sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes, and her brother, Charles Spencer.
Sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley and garden designer Pip Morrison will also join William, 39, and Harry, 36.
The siblings’ respective wives, Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, will not be in attendance, nor will Diana’s ex-husband, Prince Charles, who is reportedly in Scotland.

Diana, who was married to Charles from 1981 to 1996, tragically died in a car crash in Paris in 1997. She was 36 years old.
At the time of Diana’s death, William was 15 and Harry was 12.
Ahead of Thursday’s event, Harry — who split from the royal family in early 2020 with Meghan, 39, and moved to the US — became emotional during a virtual appearance at the Diana Award ceremony, which was set up in memory of the Princess of Wales.
“Later this week, my brother [William] and I are recognizing what would have been my mum’s 60th birthday, and she would have been so proud of you all for living an authentic life with purpose and compassion for others,” the Duke of Sussex said Monday.
