Reports claim that Prince Charles and Prince Harry are talking again, albeit it's still not "all flowers" between the father and son.

The Prince of Wales, 73, and the Duke of Sussex, 37, were last seen together in April, when Prince Harry went to the United Kingdom for the funeral of his grandfather, Prince Philip. Before then, Prince Harry has been unable to travel to his homeland since relocating to California with his wife Meghan Markle in March 2020.

"Charles was hugely hurt when Harry and Meghan just dumped it on the family they were giving up their roles and moving abroad," one unnamed royal insider told Page Six, referring to Prince Harry and Markle's decision to step back as working royals. "I don't think [Harry and Charles] talked for a good while, but now the channels of communication are open."

However, the source believes that everything "isn't all roses, in my opinion. According to the insider, it's not like Harry and Charles call each other weekly to have a heart-to-heart discussion.

Prince Charles', Prince Harry's, and Markle's representatives did not respond to demands for comment.

The news comes just days after New York Times best-selling author Christopher Andersen alleged in his new book "Brothers and Wives" that Prince Charles questioned the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's prospective children's skin tone.

According to the book, Prince Charles purportedly asked his wife, Duchess Camilla, on the day Prince Harry and Markle's engagement was officially confirmed in 2017: "What do you think their children’s complexion might be?"

In a follow-up interview with Us Weekly, Andersen claimed that the Prince of Wales did this "fondly," but that "the bureaucrats and the palace" weaponized it and turned it into something "very ugly" by the time Prince Harry heard about it.

When Prince Harry approached his father and older brother about the alleged remark, they allegedly told him he was "oversensitive" and "overreacting," according to the book.

Andersen stated that Prince Charles and Prince William's alleged response aggravated an already difficult issue.

Since then, a spokeswoman for Prince Charles has rejected the charges made in Andersen's book, describing it as "fantasy."

"I think people, on both sides of the Atlantic, in the family are united in agreeing they don't want to give this book any more oxygen," a "highly placed" unnamed source told Page Six, "I think people, on both sides of the Atlantic, in the family are united in agreeing they don't want to give this book any more oxygen."

While Prince Harry and Markle have not visited the United Kingdom since their divorce last year, the pair and their two children, Archie, two, and Lili, five months, are set to return in June for Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
