Princes William and Harry could meet at funeral before King Charles’ coronation

Estranged warring brothers Prince Harry and Prince William could be set for an awkward encounter just a few weeks before their dad's coronation in May.

It has not yet been confirmed whether or not the Duke of Sussex will attend the coronation of King Charles on May 6.

But the pair could come together sooner than that at the funeral of their late-mother's aunt's funeral.

Mary Roche, 88, died on Friday (March 3), “peacefully at home”.

She was the sister of Frances Shand Kydd, the mother of the late Princess of Wales.

No funeral details have yet been shared, but it is being rumoured by several news outlets that the pair would both want to attend if given the chance.

The death was announced via a small advert in the Telegraph.

It read: “The Hon Mary Cynthia Burke Roche, (died) peacefully at home on 3rd March, aged 88.”

A few days before her death, Charles Spencer shared a photo of his aunty on Instagram.

It was a photo from her childhood, holding the hands of another young girl.

He also shared more details about her life.

He wrote: “Grainy newspaper photograph of my Aunt Mary (left) and my mother, electioneering for my maternal grandfather Maurice Fermoy in the 1940s: an Irish-American who happened to be born in London, and who studied – lightly, it has to be said, I’ve seen his reports – at Harvard.

“My grandfather served in the US infantry in World War 1, and in the @royalairforceuk during World War 2.

“He was Member of Parliament for North Norfolk, and also Mayor of King’s Lynn. Quite a formal double portrait – but lovely, for all that.

The photo, posted to his 134k followers, was liked more than 3,600 times, with several comments point out how much Diana “looks so much like your Aunt Mary”.

And another one said: “Before reading the caption I thought it's Diana's childhood picture.”

The brothers have been at war for the last two years, with Prince Harry releasing his tell-all memoir Spare containing several claims about William earlier this year.
