Prince Harry and Prince William Are "Back in Touch"
While it's probably not likely that the Fab Four will ride again anytime soon, Entertainment Tonight reports that things are getting better between Princes Harry and William. Thanks to a combination of the coronavirus, royal birthdays, and Prince Charles's diagnosis with COVID-19, the two brothers are "back in touch" and mending the rifts in their relationship.
"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," royal expert Katie Nicholl told ET. "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."
Many royal-watchers believed that the two grew apart when Harry decided to step down from his role as a senior member of the royal family and move away from the U.K. Additionally, ET explains that any sort of tension that existed between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle has blown over.
"I think there is a sense of relief on both sides that this high drama is now a thing of the past," Nicholl added. "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."
Nicholl notes that while many people, Jane Goodall included, believed that Harry would be lonely or sad in Los Angeles, things are going as smoothly as can be expected and both Harry and Meghan are enjoying their newfound freedom.
"They've settled into their lives in L.A. and this is the pathway for the future," Nicholl finished. "I'm told they feel a great sense of freedom and they're really enjoying their new lives and [doing] things a bit more on their terms."
