Princes William and Harry were able to spend some time together in Windsor following the funeral of their grandfather Prince Philip, according to reports.

The royal brothers were seen together for the first time in public in more than a year at the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh held in St George's Chapel in the grounds of Windsor on Saturday.

During the procession following the specially designed Land Rover made by the Duke of Edinburgh, the Princes were separated by their cousin, Peter Phillips.

But, following the ceremony, they were seen chatting outside the chapel and walked back up to Windsor Castle together, with the Duchess of Cambridge alongside them.

The family had been due to return to the castle in state vehicles, but in a last-minute change of plans, they were captured returning to the castle by foot following the state car carrying the Queen.

It is understood that the pair had spoken on the phone following Harry's arrival in the UK ahead of the service.

They had not been able to spend time together because Prince Harry had been in quarantine at Frogmore Cottage, his former home with his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, since touching down in the UK from Los Angeles.

Meghan, who is expecting the couple's second child, did not attend the service as she had been advised not to fly by doctors.

It is understood she watched the ceremony from their home in Montecito, California.

Harry stayed in Windsor on Saturday night, the Daily Telegraph reported.

Senior royals did not leave the castle until 6pm, meaning they got to spend some "quality time" together.

The funeral was the first time that William and Harry were seen together in public since they attended a Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey on March 9 2020 with their wives.

Their strained relationship was aggravated by thecoronavirus pandemic, and an explosive interview by Harry and Meghan with Oprah Winfrey which aired last month.

It has been hoped that the death of their grandfather will prompt a reconciliation between the two.

The brothers are expected to be together in public once again for the unveiling of a statue of their mother, Diana Princess of Wales on July 1, which would have been her 60th birthday.

Sources have said it is "unthinkable" that Prince Harry would miss the reveal at Kensington Palace Gardens, despite his wife being due to give birth in June.

It is not known when Harry will return to the US.
