The Duke of Sussex is determined to stand shoulder to shoulder with his brother at the unveiling of a statue of their mother Diana, Princess of Wales, whatever the fallout from his interview with Oprah Winfrey. Prince Harry hopes that the brothers can present a united front at Kensington Palace on July 1, which would have been the Princess’s 60th birthday, in an attempt to move past their rift. A source close to Prince Harry insisted that whatever had been said and done, he desperately hoped to attend the event and considered it a priority. There is more uncertainty about whether the Duke might make it back to the UK for earlier events, such as Trooping the Colour on June 12 or the Duke of Edinburgh’s 100th birthday on June 10, partly due to the impending birth of his second child, thought to be due around that time. Despite the explosive nature of the revelations made to Ms Winfrey, the Sussexes consider the interview their last word on the subject and want to move on. They felt they needed to have their say and explain to the public why they turned their backs on royal life, but now consider the matter closed, sources said. One friend said: “It was something they felt they wanted and needed to do but now they have done it, they feel a line has been drawn under that chapter of their lives and they want to move on.”

Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne has revealed the six words Jose Mourinho said to him which ended his stay at Chelsea. De Bruyne spent an unhappy six months at Stamford Bridge under Mourinho, having spent the previous season on loan at Werder Bremen, making just nine appearances - three of which were in the Premier League. Wolfsburg gave De Bruyne an exit in the January window, and the player has since gone on to become arguably the best midielder in the game with Manchester City.

Liverpool were accused of becoming “mentality midgets” by their former defender Jamie Carragher after their Premier League title defence lurched further into disarray with a sixth consecutive home defeat, this time to relegation-threatened Fulham. On another dismal day for the reigning champions, Mario Lemina’s first-half goal - which arrived courtesy of a terrible error by Mohamed Salah - proved enough to secure a priceless win for the visitors and leave Liverpool facing a desperate fight to secure Champions League football next season. It prompted a withering assessment from former Manchester United captain Roy Keane, who suggested it was now “crisis time at Liverpool”, and from the club’s former players, with Graeme Souness labelling their decline “unfathomable” and Carragher questioning their attitude. “That man [Jurgen Klopp] rightly called his side the 'mentality monsters' and they deserved that tag last season,” he said on Sky Sports. “Right now, they are like 'mentality midgets'. His side haven't dealt well with adversity at all at any stage.” Jurgen Klopp should no longer be untouchable - this Liverpool slump is his responsibility Doubts around Liverpool’s approach were also voiced by Fulham’s Harrison Reed, who suggested his side had shown more desire than Liverpool. "I think we did want it more, that was evident on the pitch, from the first whistle, and that was a big factor in getting the three points today,” said Reed. Klopp responded: “When you win in a situation like Fulham you say these kinds of things. The winner is always right, but I don’t see that problem. “The boys wanted to win this game today. I saw that. We still made mistakes. That’s the problem. That’s not because you don’t 'want it' - the boys don’t want to make mistakes. We just made them. We have really tight results in the moment, pretty much always against us, and we have to make sure we win football games again. If it’s a 1-0, it’s fine, fight for it with all you have and then you can gain confidence and momentum maybe again. At this moment we don’t have that.” Klopp nevertheless accepted that his side’s slump in standards - no Premier League-winning team has suffered a bigger drop-off in points at this stage of their title defence than Liverpool this term - was unacceptable. “Not good enough. Concede a goal, do not score, we lost the game, so not good enough,” he said. “We have to win football games. We have to win one football game. That would be helpful.” Klopp has generally sought to avoid referencing Liverpool’s injury issues as an excuse for their position - unless specifically asked - but given the questioning of the mentality of those suffering the latest setback he pointed towards those missing stars.
