Prince Harry and Prince William said they were “reconnected” at Christmas, but reported that they were “never close” as before.
According to royal experts, the royal brothers are talking “relatively and regularly”.
Prince Harry (age 36) and Prince William (age 38) are said to have been silent for months after the Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan Markle resigned from their senior royal role.
But now, the brothers are said to be in regular contact after Harry moved to the United States with his wife Meghan and son Archie.

Royal expert Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight: “Ahead today, relationships are much better than before.
“Initially, they rely on the terms they speak, and they speak relatively regularly as well as the terms they speak. They contacted very much during the holiday season.”
As Katie added, the brothers reportedly sent gifts to each other. “During the Christmas and New Year holidays, there were phone calls and video calls, and Sussexes sent gifts to Cambridge and vice versa.
“Otherwise, it was an opportunity for both families to virtually gather and connect in a very busy and confusing year.”
A royal expert claimed that Prince William, who contacted Prince Harry, who was found to have suffered a miscarriage, “barely talked” with Harry after resigning from the royal family.
She said: “The situation between William and Harry is much better. Going back a year at that stage, these brothers said little
“William was so upset with his brother when he went to the Sandringham Summit. He couldn’t have faced going to that lunch with the queen. He simply attended the meeting. It was the disappointment and disappointment of what his brother did and how Harry handled the situation.”
Katie continued to explain that there were still difficulties when it came to their relationship.
“But there’s a sea between them, there’s a time difference, [has] … They are two brothers on different paths.”
Meanwhile, royal experts said the relationship between the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex was “much better”, but I doubt the pair will be “closer” as before.
Shortly before retiring from the role of the senior royal family, Harry said the brothers were “on a different path.”
In a TV interview, Prince Harry refused to deny the crack between himself and William: “If part of this role, part of this profession, and this family are under pressure, things will inevitably happen.
“But look, we are brothers. We will always be brothers. Right now we are definitely going the other way but I will always be there for him, and as I know he will always be there for me.”
He added: “We are so busy that we don’t see each other as we used to, but I love him very much and most of the stuff is made out of nothing. As a brother, there are good days and bad days.”
