“When Harry actually turned his feet at an angle toward his brother, his brother didn’t respond by turning toward Harry,” Cobb said. Us weekly exclusively on Tuesday, July 6. “He was more stoic. He was less committed to his brother and, in my opinion, Harry was trying to make attempts to get involved. “

U.S. “But that was really the only time I saw it, because for the rest of the clip that I watched, they were really more apart. They were still in the same space, but they were doing their thing with very limited contact. “
She continued: “This is a moment of unity, not separation, not division. So regardless of what’s going on with their sibling relationship, I think they’re trying to channel it if they like, or come together to show some camaraderie. “
