As OK! previously reported, William and Harry were all smiles at the unveiling of the late Princess Diana's statue in the Sunken Garden of Kensington Palace in July.
The pair even issued a joint statement on the day of the unveiling. “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,” Harry and William said, according to the palace.
“The queen’s ruled for 69 years,” explains the source. “When she speaks, her family is compelled to listen.”
