While rumors of a rift between the siblings were rife all summer, royal correspondent Katie Nicholl said the “distance” between the two dukes was a “good thing for them.”
The expert revealed that the Duke of Cambridge, 38, spoke to Harry when he turned 36 last week, and said that although it will be a long time before the brothers have a “ cozy Christmas ” together, they are “ getting along ” better than before several months ago.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Katie said: ‘The brothers spoke for Harry’s birthday, it’s no secret that it was a difficult journey between the two brothers.
‘But I actually think the distance was a good thing for them. They talk more than before.
He added that while it may be some time before the brothers have a “cozy Christmas together,” things are “better than they were” several months ago.
Meanwhile Katie explained that the Duke and Duchess are “starting to explore” their new neighborhood of Montecito.
The former royals bought their $ 14.7 million mansion on a secluded, lush estate outside the affluent city in June and joined homeowners like Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, and Ariana Grande.
He said the couple were spotted ‘venturing out’, with Prince Harry often picking up take-out at a local burger chain.
It comes after the tension in relations between Prince William and Harry, who were once inseparable, was laid bare in the biography of the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes Finding Freedom.
According to authors Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie, the breakup between the brothers began in 2016 when Harry and Meghan began dating.
It was reportedly triggered by a conversation during which William urged his younger brother to slow down the romance and “take a little more time to get to know Meghan.”
Scobie also said the brothers went two months without speaking after the Sussex Megxit bomb was announced.
Speaking last month, Scobie said princes William and Harry cut off communication for two months after Megxit and said their relationship “will take time to heal.”
However, last week, Prince William and Kate Middleton seemed eager to silence any reports of a family rift and shared an Instagram post dedicated to Harry at the start of his birthday.
The pair chose a lighthearted shot of Harry beating them both in a running match at London’s Olympic Stadium, accompanied by the caption: “I wish Prince Harry a happy birthday today!”
But social media users quickly noticed that the Duchess of Sussex had been left out of the photos, as angered royal fans went to the comments section to say that it was “shady” of family members “literally cutting Meghan out of the photo”.
