But according to writer Leslie Carroll, they couple might not have received one from Prince William.

She said, speaking to the Daily Express: "This frost between the brothers has gone on for quite some time; so I have my doubts that they have spoken during the lockdown, which is sad.

"But if there has been a thaw in communications, I believe we might have heard about it."

I have my doubts that they have spoken during the lockdown.

However, it follows reports the pair have indeed put their differences aside and gotten back in touch.

According to royal expert Katie Nicholl, seeing their father Prince Charles battle coronavirus, and Harry's homesickness after moving to the US, has brought them closer together.

Speaking again?

She told Entertainment Tonight: "They have done video calls together, they have done a lot of family birthdays and I think with Prince Charles not being well, that really forced the brothers to pick up the phone and get back in touch."
