London -

Hubungan Pangeran William dan adiknya, Pangeran Harry, belakangan ini dibayangi isu perpecahan. Namun, keduanya bersatu kembali untuk merayakan momen spesial mendiang ibu mereka, Putri Diana.

Reuni tersebut terjadi di peresmian patung Putri Diana, Kamis (1/7/2021), yang bertepatan dengan hari ulang tahunnya yang ke-60. Patung tersebut berada di Sunken Garden, salah satu taman di Kensington Palace, London, kediaman resmi ibu mereka yang kini ditempati oleh Pangeran William dan Kate Middleton.

Pangeran William dan Pangeran Harry mendatangi lokasi berbarengan. Keduanya kompak dalam balutan setelan formal berwarna biru navy dengan dasi senada.

Saat berjalan, mereka terlihat berbincang akrab dan sesekali tertawa. Tak tampak tanda-tanda ketegangan dan perseteruan di antara mereka sebagaimana ramai diberitakan.

BBC mengabarkan, acara berlangsung hangat dan singkat. Paman dan bibi William dan Harry dari pihak keluarga ibunya juga menyaksikan momen spesial tersebut. Hadir adik Diana, Earl Spencer, serta kedua kakaknya, Lady Sarah McCorquodale dan Lady Jane Fellowes. Sementara itu, Pangeran Charles memilih absen.

Tak ada pidato resmi dari keluarga, tapi pihak Kensington Palace merilis pernyataan resmi dari Pangeran William dan Harry setelah acara.

"Hari ini, yang seharusnya menjadi ulang tahun ke-60 ibu kami, kami mengingat cinta, kekuatan serta karakternya. Kualitas yang menjadikannya pejuang untuk kebaikan di seluruh dunia dan mengubah kehidupan orang banyak agar lebih baik," kata mereka.

Pangeran William dan Harry kehilangan ibu mereka saat masih berusia belia. Putri Diana wafat karena kecelakaan lalu lintas pada 1997 di Paris, Prancis.

"Setiap hari kami berharap, seandainya beliau masih ada di antara kita. Semoga patung ini bisa dapat menjadi simbol kehidupan dan warisannya," tambah Pangeran William dan Harry.

Patung Putri Diana menampilkan sang Princess of Wales sedang merangkul tiga anak kecil. Adalah Ian Rank-Broadley, seorang pemahat yang mendapat kepercayaan untuk proyek yang disebut 'sangat rahasia' ini. Adapun proses kreatif sampai patung rampung dibuat memakan waktu hingga empat tahun.

Kehadiran Pangeran William dan Harry di acara peresmian patung Putri Diana menjadi pertemuan pertama mereka sejak pemakaman Pangeran Philip pada April lalu. Pangeran Harry yang saat ini menetap di AS bersama Meghan Markle dan kedua anak mereka tiba di Inggris pekan lalu sebelum menjalani proses karantina.


Kabar keretakan hubungan keduanya mulai santer terdengar sejak Pangeran Harry menyatakan mundur dari keanggotaan senior keluarga Kerajaan Inggris pada awal 2020.

Puncaknya saat Pangeran Harry dan Meghan Meghan bicara blak-blakan kepada Oprah Winfrey tentang kejelekan keluarga Kerajaan Inggris.

Mereka mengaku pernah mendapat perlakuan rasialis dari salah satu anggota keluarga. Secara khusus juga, Pangeran Harry menyebut dia dan kakaknya kini berada di 'jalan yang berbeda.'
