But despite meeting for the first time since Megxit their relationship remains a work in progress, it'sclaimed.
Nick Bullen, editor-in-chief of True Royalty TV told US Weekly: "All of my sources tell me that they are not talking at the moment.
"It’s pretty clear that the Duchess of Cambridge was doing her best to build the bridges.
"Softly, softly seems to be the order of the day.”
The Sun reported this month that Harry, 36, and William, 39, will give separate speeches when their mum’s statue is unveiled — highlighting their ongoing rift.
The brothers will stand together when the Diana memorial is revealed in July.
But in a sign their feud has yet to heal, there will be no joint address.
The Kensington Palace ceremony is a long-term project between the brothers, who fell out over Harry’s decision to quit as a working royal.
Hopes of improved relations were raised after they chatted at Prince Philip’s funeral last month.
A source said: “They will both move heaven and earth to be there. They commissioned the statue together. It is very important for them.
“There is, of course, hope the memory of Diana can repair their relationship but that seems a long way off right now.

The three met up away from the cameras following the televised service.
They remained together for two hours at Windsor Castle as they mingled with family members on its Quadrangle.
millions watching on TV saw William and Harry speaking to each other as they walked side by side away from St George’s Chapel after the funeral.
They spoke for about four minutes — having been deliberately kept apart during the procession an hour earlier.
A source said: “It is not known what was said behind closed doors and when the cameras were turned off, but it's unfathomable to think Megxit and Oprah did not come up.
“Harry and William appeared cordial as the cameras rolled and that seemed to pave the way for Charles to join them when everyone had left.”
Meanwhile,Prince Andrew’s former love interest Lady Victoria Hervey has claimed Harry and Meghan's marriage won't work as they "rushed in".
The British socialite, 44, says the courtship between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex was “way too short”, and predicted Meghan, 39, would end up “wanting to be in America.
Harry and Meghan are believed to have met on a blind date in July 2016, according to the biography Finding Freedom.
They became engaged in August 2017 – before officially announcing the news three months later in November, and then married in May, 2018.
Lady Victoria, who is the daughter of the 6th Marquess of Bristol, said to Closer magazine: “I think Harry and Meghan's courtship was way too short. I just don't see it lasting.
“I remember just before their wedding, I thought, ‘They'll get married, have a few kids… And she will end up wanting to be in America’.”
Finding Freedom also claims that Prince William advised Harry to “take as much time as you need to get to know this girl” – which Harry took offence to.
She also said she found the couple’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey “distasteful”, due to it taking place when the late Prince Philip, who died in April aged 99, was ill in hospital.
Lady Victoria added: “The way it was done, with Prince Philip in the hospital, literally about to die. I thought it was pretty unreal.”
