Prince Harry and Prince William exchange Xmas presents as they agree ‘truce’

Prince Harry and Prince William have reportedly exchanged Christmas presents and agreed a ‘truce’.

A royal biographer has claimed the two brothers plan to keep in touch during the festive period despite reported tensions between them.

Harry and Meghan have sent William and his family gifts after a shopping trip near their home in Santa Barbara, California.

Royal writer Andrew Morton claimed Meghan also wrote some personalised messages to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

It is also said that the Cambridges posted gifts to the couple and their son Archie.

Mr Morton told The Sun: “Harry has sent presents to William and Kate and the calligraphy has been done by Meghan.

“He plans to speak to his father and brother over Christmas.”

It comes as royal expert Katie Nicholl said relations between Harry and William are improving.

Speaking on True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat, she said: “I think it’s no secret that there were great tensions and great difficulties in the relationship.

“There was an unbreakable bond between them and they were so close.

“I don’t think they will ever be close the way that they were, but there has been nine months now since Megxit. I think relations are better between them.

“I know they are in touch, they do talk. Harry has sent over a load of Christmas presents for the Cambridge children.

“They will Zoom, they will chat over the holidays.

“There is contact, there is friendly contact. But it’s not what it was.”

Harry and Meghan also plan to release an official Christmas snap despite no longer being senior members of the Royal Family, according to reports.

The Sussexes – who left the UK in the spring before settling in California – will publish their festive photo alongside a holiday special podcast in the coming days, it has been claimed.

Omid Scobie, co-author of the couple’s bombshell summer biography, Finding Freedom, said: “There is this forthcoming Christmas card photo.

“I believe it is on its way.”

Last week, Prince William and Kate released their official 2020 Christmas photo featuring their children George, Charlotte and Louis.
