It's been reported that Prince William and Prince Harry have been feuding since the younger brother decided to leave the royal family at the beginning of the year, but the pair may have mended their relationship this Christmas.

New reports suggest the brothers have exchanged gifts between their families in what some are calling a Christmas 'truce'.

Harry, 36, and wife Meghan Markle, 39, have sent gifts to William, 38, Kate Middleton, 38, and their children Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.

Meghan even reportedly used her calligraphy skills to write messages for the three children.


Royal biographer Andrew Morton, who wrote Diana: Her True Story, said, "Harry has sent presents to William and Kate and the calligraphy has been done by Meghan."

He also claimed William and Kate had sent the couple and son Archie, one, gifts in return.

Morton also said Harry "plans to speak to his father and brother over Christmas".

New restrictions in the UK have changed the way William and Kate will celebrate Christmas.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their children originally planned to travel to Kate's family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, according to the Mail on Sunday.

Kate's sister Pippa, her husband James and son Arthur were meant to join them in a bubble of three households, however, the Middletons have now called off their plans as London and Berkshire moved to tier 4, which means no mixing between households and a ban on travel.

It will no doubt be quite upsetting for Mike, 71, and Carole, 65, who were excited to have their first Christmas Day with all four of their grandchildren.

The Cambridges will now spend Christmas at home as a family of five.

The Queen will spend Christmas "very quietly" with Prince Philip at Windsor Castle.

A number of staff have isolated from their own families to continue working at the castle.

The Queen will also attend church on Christmas Day at her private chapel in the castle where everyone in attendance will wear masks.

Prince Charles and Camilla will be at Highgrove House in Gloucestershire and are forming a bubble with Camilla's two children and five grandchildren.
