However, there is no official confirmation from the royal family at the moment

The concession of the royal family, namely Prince Williams and the king, who initially wanted to follow the strict protocol, comes just in time for the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II on Monday. Many observers and royal experts found it cruel that Prince Harry was treated so harshly in mourning for the deceased monarch. Harry had to rush to the Queen’s deathbed one by one, only found her on her deathbed and spent his time isolated from the family with wife Meghan Markle (41) at Frogmore Cottage, just a stone’s throw from Windsor Castle.

During the tour with Prince William (40) and the wives Kate Middleton (40) and Meghan Markle in Windsor, the family seemed to be united in grief. But royal experts saw Harry and Williams’ joint appearance as a formal farce, according to a comment in news.com, the tour was preceded by tough negotiations. The concession brings back hopes of reconciliation, which would no doubt have been in the Queen’s interest. Sources used: dpa, mirror.co.uk
