Even though Prince Hamzah may not be under house arrest as he states, he's still being kept under a watchful by the King et al. The public reconciliation and the public appearance by Hamzah were, I imagine, King Abdullah's making, simply for the fact to reassure the Jordanian public especially the various tribes that all is well between the two and nothing untoward will happen to Hamzah. Abdullah and Rania, as is well known are extremely unpopular in Jordan practically from his ascension to the Throne. Govt. corruption has been out of control under the present King and while he has promised to take measures to fight it, little has been done. The King has also taken a hit for his and the Govt.'s lack of response to the Covid pandemic.
Hamzah may not be under house arrest so to speak, but he's not free to travel on his own, since his appearance after the reconciliation statement, he hasn't been seen in public or made any public statement since Apr. Hopefully, he is allowed to communicate with Queen Noor.
