A royal expert Katie Nicholl told ET: “There have been clearly some quite major rifts in that relationship, but things have got better."

Things are looking bright in the British royal family as the distanced brothers Prince William and Harry are said to be back on talking terms. 

According to a report in ET, Prince William and Prince Harry are “back in touch” after some tension since the younger one got married. 

This comes after Harry and his wife Meghan Markle have finally moved to Los Angeles, stepping away from “royal duties” while the older sibling’s family William, his wife Kate Middleon and kids continue to step up on their duties. 

A royal expert Katie Nicholl told ET: “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. 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.”

The pair were said to have started working on mending their relationship in February.

It also happens as Harry is feeling homesick as he is away from London and has settled in America.

“I think there is a sense of relief on both sides that this high drama is now a thing of the past. 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 said. 

“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.”
