But today, all of this has taken shape in the person of these two brothers. ” The relations between the princes William and Harry would indeed have been strained after the announcement of the “Megxit” on January 8, 2020,
And the departure of the Duke of Sussex in America. A year later, the duo would however have reconnected during the holiday season. ” They called each other, by phone and videoconference, for Christmas and New Years,” revealed royal correspondent Katie Nicholl in the columns of Entertainment Tonight ( ET), on Friday, January 8. The Sussex’s sent gifts to the Cambridges, and vice versa. ” Before adding: “It was an opportunity for both families, in this busy and chaotic year, to reunite and reconnect with each other, even in a virtual way.”
“William was very angry”
The journalist assured that everything was going “much better” between the two dukes. “If you go back a year, these brothers barely spoke to each other,” she continued. When William went to the crisis meeting in Sandringham, he was very angry with his younger brother. He couldn’t even bear the thought of going to that lunch with the Queen. He only went to the meetings.

They were in contact a lot during the end of year holidays. ” The two brothers also welcomed the opening of an investigation around an interview with Lady Diana –
