According to insiders, Harry and Kate are back in contact, with sources claiming they’ve been sharing “secret” messages and calls.

The news comes not long after Kate announced her cancer diagnosis to the world. The announcement was made in a video, in which Kate revealed that she is undergoing “preventive chemotherapy”.

Her cancer diagnosis came just weeks after King Charles announced his own to the world.

Speaking to Closer magazine, a source said: “Harry has been in touch with Kate several times since she came home from hospital, sending notes of encouragement and support via text as well as calling her from time-to-time to check-in. Kate is being warm and welcoming towards him and she’s made it clear that she’s happy they are back in touch.”

The source continued: “Of course, he’s very mindful that it’s a sensitive situation given the difficult relationship he has with William at the moment, not to mention the ongoing issues he and Meghan have with The Firm as a whole.”
