Prince William and Prince Harry put aside their differences yesterday to pay tribute to their late mother, Diana.

The unveiling of her statue on what would have been her 60th birthday was a bittersweet occasion – a moment to reflect on the good she did but also a reminder of the sadness of losing a mother at such a young age.

The fact the brothers’ bond was forged in grief has made their rift all the more poignant.

Every family experiences divisions and difficulties and the Windsors are no different.

Only the two Princes will be able to solve their differences and it may take years.

Yesterday was about their mother’s legacy and not their broken relationship.

But we hope that this coming together for such as heartfelt occasion could prove the first step towards a full reconciliation.

Green revival

The decision by Nissan to build its new electric car in Sunderland is not just a boost for British business after Brexit.

It is also a tribute to the skills, hard work and dedication of the workforce.

This is just the start of what can be achieved as part of the green industrial revolution.

If the Government gets this right then we can cut our carbon emissions and create tens of thousands of jobs across the country.

This cannot be left to the private sector alone and will require far more investment from this Tory administration.

France is spending more than £26billion to kickstart its green economy and Germany nearly double that amount.

By contrast the UK is spending just £12bn.

Nissan has shown what is possible.

We must seize the opportunity to make sure other firms take the same route.

Net gains

Wimbledon ace Andy Murray branded the 1% pay offer for nurses “pathetic”.

The ball is now in the Government’s court.

It’s time that it served up the pay rise our NHS workers deserve.
