PRINCE Harry was reunited with brother ­William for two hours after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral — sparking hopes of peace between them.

They joined dad Charles for the first time since Harry and wife Meghan’s Oprah US TV interview threatened to tear the family apart.

Charles had crunch talks with his warring sons after the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral — and insiders say it is just what Philip would have wanted.

The three met up away from the cameras following Saturday’s televised service. They remained together for two hours at Windsor Castle as they mingled with family members on its Quadrangle.

It is understood Charles and William grilled Harry on his role within the Royal Family as the pair prepare for a crunch summit to decide the future of the Monarchy in the coming weeks.

It comes as it was claimed Harry wrote Prince Charles a “deeply personal note” ahead of his homecoming for Philip’s funeral – but the father and son have reportedly not yet patched up their fractured relationship.

Prince Harry touched base with Charles before he returned to the UK, where he would be reunited with his family for the first time since he left royal life last year.

Their relationship had “hit rock bottom” in the wake of Harry and his wife Meghan Markle’s explosive tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey – while his grandfather lay seriously ill in hospital.

Charles is still “very hurt” by the appearance, which rocked the royal family amid allegations of bullying and racism, the Daily Mirror reports.

Sources close to the Duke said he has been “forced to write letters” after a “complete communication breakdown” with his father.

The notes are said to have “outlined his reasons for leaving” his position to live in California with mum-to-be Meg and their one-year-old son Archie, while promising to “respect the institution”.
