The ice is melting between the warring royal brothers Prince William and Prince Harry – thanks to the family’s main mediator, Kate Middleton.

The Duchess of Cambridge, wife of William – whom he has dubbed the ‘peacemaker of the family’ – was the first to strike up a conversation with Harry in isolation after Saturday’s low-key funeral for his grandfather Prince Philip, reported The Sunday Times in London.

She struck up a heated conversation with her brother-in-law as the royals emerged under the bright spring sunshine.

The prince seemed to visibly relax as she spoke – then William joined them, turning their one-on-one into a threesome.

As most of the royals ditched the cars waiting for them outside the chapel and headed back to Windsor Castle together, Kate discreetly dropped behind – allowing William and Harry to ride side by side, speaking amiably along the way.

Royal assistants were said to have been ‘on eggshells’ as they planned the funeral around the brothers’ strained relationship.

An enraged William was reportedly left ‘shaken’ following his brother’s inflammatory interview with Oprah Winfrey last month, when Harry and his wife Meghan Markle brought racism charges against anonymous family members and said that his brother felt “trapped” by his royal duties.

The brothers were separated by their cousin Peter Phillips as they walked in the procession behind their grandfather’s coffin, and were seated far from each other during the funeral service.

While Markle, pregnant with the couple’s second child, was unable to make it to Britain for the ceremonies, Harry could stay in his homeland for several more days, The Times reported, to privately celebrate the 95th. Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday with family on Wednesday.
