The Duke of Sussex has held an olive branch out to his brother, The Duke of Cambridge, by sending “a load” of Christmas presents to the Cambridge children.

And it seems the pair will celebrate together this Christmas, albeit virtually.

Royal expert, Katie Nicholl, told True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat, “There has been nine months since Megxit and relations are better. 

I know that they are in touch, that they do talk. I know that Harry sent over a load of presents for the Cambridge children. They will zoom and chat over the holidays.”

The latest episode will be available on True Royalty TV from Monday 21st December.

It’s a step in the right direction following reports that the brothers had grown distant since Meghan and Harry stepped down as senior royals earlier this year. Something their mother, Princess Diana, would have tried to fix - according to Paul Burrell.

Although the brothers used to share a close bond, royal author, Omid Scobie, revealed William, 38, and Harry, 36, are not as close as they once were.

“It’s completely wrong to think William and Harry are communicating like they used to. The fallout is serious and difficult," he said.

According to the co-author of new bombshell biography, Finding Freedom, the brothers cut contact following the Sandringham Summit – in which the plans for their departure were finalised.

On their deepening rift, he told The Royal Beat, “The brothers had not spoken since around the time of the Sandringham summit. They hadn’t seen each other. That’s really going to take some time to heal."

Thankfully it seems time has been the ultimate healer and they seem to be making amends as the year draws to a close.

It will be a Christmas like no other in the royal household as the Queen will spend the festive period at Windsor Castle for the first time in 32 years amid the ongoing global pandemic.

Buckingham Palace confirmed the news earlier this month, claiming the 94-year-old Monarch and Prince Philip will celebrate “quietly”.

A spokesperson said, “Having considered all the appropriate advice, the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh have decided that this year they will spend Christmas quietly in Windsor.”

Prince Harry and Meghan are no doubt looking forward to spending Christmas in their new Santa Barbara home - which they recently settled into.
