“Charles found a great deal of comfort in their conversations while he was recuperating from coronavirus,” a source exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly. However, things with his brother, 37, aren’t as positive.

“They speak, but it’s awkward,” the insider says, noting that William’s upset at Harry, 35, for leaving the family, especially with the pandemic. “He’s hurt that Harry isn’t in London to support the family amid the coronavirus outbreak.”

Meghan, 38, and Harry recently moved from Vancouver Island, Canada, to Los Angeles with their 10-month-old son, Archie. They are currently on lockdown, as new safety guidelines are put in place due to the coronavirus pandemic.
