Ahead of the unveiling of the statue of his late mother Princess Diana, Prince Harry has mentioned his brother, Prince William, while speaking in an awards ceremony video.

Prince Harry, 36, who landed in London on Friday, made a nod to his brother William while paying tribute to young people's "humanitarianism" during the The Diana Awards ceremony.

Harry’s referenced his brother in the video comes despite reports the siblings are currently locked in a feud.

Prince Harry is currently thought to be self-isolating at his Berkshire residence Frogmore Cottage ahead of the unveiling of a statue of Princess Diana, on what would have been her 60th birthday on Thursday 1 July.

Speaking to a group young people after a virtual ceremony for the The Diana Award, Harry said: “I'm truly honoured to be celebrating your work, your commitment to change making and the vital role that you've taken on representing a new generation of humanitarianism.

"Later this week, my brother and I are recognising what would have been our mum's 60th birthday, and she would be so proud of you all for living authentic life with purpose and with compassion for others.

"Our mum believed that young people have the power to change the world.

"She believed in your strength because she saw it day in and day out and in the faces of young people exactly like you, she witnessed a boundless enthusiasm and passion.

"And I too see those same values shine through as it has done for 21 years now, The Diana Award carries her legacy forward by putting young people at the centre of our future – and this has never been more important."

Harry's nod to William comes as royal expert Duncan Larcombe revealed to OK! the brothers will meet face to face ahead of their late mother Princess Diana's statue unveiling.

Discussing their relationship, Duncan said: “It's highly likely that William and Harry will meet in private before the statue unveiling.

“Royals never attend an official engagement by turning up out of the blue and Harry and William will both know that all eyes will be on them.

"They will want to try to put on a united front. They will have plenty of time on the morning of Thursday so I think it's likely they'll have breakfast and try and smooth things over. At least get to a point where they can stand to be together."

Prince Harry and Prince William's relationship has been tense since early 2020, when Harry announced he was stepping down as a senior royal with wife Meghan Markle.

Things then took a dramatic turn when Harry and Meghan sat down with Oprah Winfrey for a shocking tell-all interview.

Harry recently admitted that London was a trigger for his mental health, saying: "For most of my life I've always felt worried, concerned, a little bit tense and uptight whenever I fly back into the UK, whenever I fly back into London."
