Prince William Reportedly ‘Keeping Tabs’ on Prince Harry With Casual Zoom Chats

Prince William and Prince Harry are reportedly keeping in touch since Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex made their official royal exit in March. During the last royal engagement the Sussexes attended, it appeared that things were still tense between Prince Harry and Prince William, but it sounds like they are mending their fractured relationship via Zoom chats.

Prince Harry and Prince William were feuding

It had long been rumored that Prince Harry and Prince William had been feuding, something that Harry confirmed in a 2019 interview for the documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey.

“Part of this role and part of this job and this family being under the pressure that it’s under… inevitably, you know, stuff happens,” Prince Harry remarked at the time.

He continued, “But, look, we’re brothers. We’ll always be brothers. We’re certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him and, as I know, he will always be there for me.”

There was tension at their last royal engagement together

As Prince Harry and Meghan prepared to exit the royal family, there were a small number of engagements they had to fulfill in their last days. Their final appearance was at the Commonwealth Day service, also attended by William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Fans were eager to see if Prince William and Prince Harry were on better terms but their body language spoke volumes about the state of their relationship.

Body language expert Judi James told The Mirror at the time, “It wasn’t the warm reunion that we were all hoping for. The tension in Harry’s body language especially was palpable.”

Prince William is keeping ‘tabs’ on Prince Harry

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Prince William and Prince Harry have been on lockdown and, although they haven’t been able to get together face-to-face, they have reportedly been using Zoom to keep in touch virtually.

According to a report from Fabulous, Prince William uses the meeting platform to contact his brother in the evening.

“William finds Zoom a good, informal way of keeping in touch, and some would say ‘tabs’, on his younger brother,” a source shared with the site. “There have been several zoom calls. It’s easy to set up and involves no awkward scheduling.”

The insider added, “After the children have gone to bed and supper with Kate. It has been only William and Harry. It is around lunchtime in LA.”

The brothers are casual about their chats, the source explained. “These calls are made from Anmer’s private sitting room. It’s not the room that Kate and William use for their public zoom sessions,” they shared.

Additionally, a friend close to Prince Harry and Prince William explained that “William is very anxious to keep the calls low key and casual. Just two brothers have a chat. No-one else is involved. It takes the pressure off.”

Of course, there’s no need for formality, as the source shared, “It’s about keeping in touch that’s important. Harry has spoken on Zoom to the Queen as well.”
