(CNN Spanish) – On July 1, Princess Diana would have turned 60 years old. And in 2021 his birthday coincides with a ceremony in the garden of Kensington Palace in London, where a statue in his honor is unveiled in an intimate ceremony in the presence of his two much adored children, Prince William and Harry.

And what a terrible and sad moment this ceremony takes place!

The brothers, who used to be so close, are furious with each other. Totally estranged, they have tried to talk, but those talks have not been productive. And not even the peacekeeping work of Kate Middleton has been able to unite her husband and her beloved brother-in-law.

And the reason for this deep hostility – which according to press reports has gotten even worse after the funeral of his grandfather Prince Felipe – is not due to a single fact, but to the excess of words, of television “confessions”, of rumors … and it seems that the wound between William and Harry is every day more painful and uglier.

Although William has never spoken about it publicly, Harry in his interview with Oprah Winfrey, in a subsequent radio interview with Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast and in a special with Oprah on Apple TV on Mental Health, has not tired of repeating her complaints against her father, Prince Charles, and the cold upbringing she says she received from him. He said on that podcast that his life was like living in a zoo and that both his father and brother are trapped by the protocol and life of the Crown. He added that his grandparents – Queen Elizabeth II and the recently deceased Prince Philip – in turn raised their father in a cold way, without the affection that he wants, his son Archie does not lack.

Anyway, if we look in the recent newspaper library, for months now Harry’s revelations against his family accumulate and impact a lot. And so, I think, it is impossible to fix things as a family!

And all this without even mentioning his wife Meghan’s statements about the way she has been treated by the Windsors … which have outraged the very impulsive Prince Harry!

And it is that the words that are said, count! They count for a lot and hurt. Especially when they occur between family members. And sometimes we forget about it! And perhaps you have to think twice before saying – without thinking about the consequences – what goes through your mind. Because fighting and getting angry with family members — especially between parents and siblings — leave very painful and difficult wounds to heal.

I believe that all of us who follow the life of royalty think that the harmony that existed between those two brothers – that the world embraced with immense affection in the face of the tragic death of their mother in 1997 – must exist again. William and Harry owe it to their mother, who adored them and gave them a happy and loving childhood.

Diana ate her children with hugs and kisses, and that love does not deserve that when she is honored on what would have been her 60th birthday, her children are furious with each other.

Recall that because Diana herself had had a painful childhood due to her parents’ failed marriage and subsequent divorce. His mother, Frances Shand Kydd, divorced John Spencer, Viscount Althorp, after falling in love with another. And her father later remarried Raine McCorquodale, a stepmother with whom Diana had a difficult relationship, although it was arranged years before the princess’s death, according to People magazine. For me, all this emotional disaster caused the princess to pour all the love in the world on having her own children. And now we have this … a real shame!
