There’s no denying Prince Harry's relationship with his older brother Prince William has been the topic of many conversations (at least in our household) for the majority of their lives. But their degree of closeness has received even greater scrutiny, especially by the media, since the Duke of Sussex decided to step down as a senior member of the royal family.
Fear not—according to royals expert Katie Nicholl, there’s no bad blood between the two. In fact, she says the brothers have grown even closer since Harry and Meghan’s move to Los Angeles.
“There have been clearly some quite major rifts in that relationship, but things have got better and I know that William and Harry are in touch on the phone,” Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight. “They have done video calls together. They have done a lot of family birthdays and I think with Prince Charles not being well, that really forced the brothers to pick up the phone and get back in touch.” Phew!
Nicholl also opened up about the foursome getting accustomed to their new lives, as well as how they are celebrating special occasions, such as Archie’s recent birthday.
“The Sussexes are free to get on with their new lives [and] the Cambridges can get back to their old lives without all the upset and drama that was clearly a big deal behind the scenes. I think Kate and William miss Harry and Meghan to a degree, but certainly, they miss Harry [being] around and part of their lives,” she continued. “I am quite sure there would have been communication between the Cambridges and the Prince of Wales and I am told Harry picks up the phone regularly to his grandmother, the queen,” Nicholl said. “They had that same call on her birthday. I'm sure there was a Zoom birthday call for Archie, too.”
Looks like all is well in the Windsor fam.
