Despite reported tensions following Prince Harry’s departure from the royal family, the Duke of Cambridge and the Duke of Sussex have exchanged gifts for their families this year as a sign of a Christmas ‘truce’.

Prince Harry, 36, and Meghan Markle, 39, sent gifts to Prince William, 38, and his family after a shopping spree at an exclusive boutique near Santa Barbara, The Sun reported.

Meghan Markle reportedly added a personal touch by using his calligraphy skills to write messages to Harry’s niece and nephews – Prince George, seven, Princess Charlotte, five, and Prince Louis, two.

Royal biographer Andrew Morton, who wrote Diana: Her True Story, said: “Harry sent gifts to William and Kate and the calligraphy was done by Meghan. “

He added that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 38, also sent a gift to Prince Harry, Meghan and their 17-month-old son Archie.

Kensington Palace declined to comment.

Andrew Morton also claimed that Harry “was planning to talk to his father and brother over Christmas”.

This follows an announcement from the Prime Minister that Christmas could not go as planned yesterday during a speech at 10 Downing Street which saw the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s Christmas bubble plans disrupted as d other families in the country.

The original plan was for the Duke and Duchess, along with children George, Charlotte and Louis, to travel to the Middletons Grade II listed home in Bucklebury, Berkshire, for the festivities, Emily Andrews wrote for the Mail on Sunday.

Kate’s sister, Pippa, her husband James and their son Arthur were also due to join the family in Bucklebury for Christmas. Then Berkshire and London were immersed in level 3, so Kate offered to host at Anmer Hall.

But after news last night that Berkshire was moving to Level 4 with a travel ban and household mixing, the Middletons canceled their plans.

It will be a blow to Mike, 71, and Carole, 65, who had planned their first Christmas day with their four grandchildren: George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Louis and Arthur, two.

As the queen of the kitchen, Carole let it be known in an interview two years ago that she normally wears a “big pinny” and that her Christmas essentials are “chopped pies, mulled wine and mistletoe”.

She was also planning a champagne and smoked salmon affair with a family meal for the big day based on a recipe by Mary Berry, including a vegan option.

From now on, the Cambridges will celebrate alone with a family of five.

The Queen has decided to spend this festive season “very quietly” with the Duke of Edinburgh at Windsor Castle.

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall will be at Highgrove House in Gloucestershire forming a bubble with Camilla’s two children and five grandchildren.

The Queen, 94, and Prince Philip, 99, will remain protected in Windsor by ‘HMS Bubble’ – a small number of employees isolated from their own families. Special arrangements have been made to allow the Queen to attend church. There will be a small service, with masks, in his private chapel in the castle.

It will then be the turkey for two for lunch with possibly a video call to Prince Harry and Meghan in California. The Sussexes will be with her son Archie, 19 months, and Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland.

Sophie, Countess of Wessex, was due to spend Christmas Day with her father Christopher Rhys Jones, 89, for the first time in 21 years, but as her Surrey home, Bagshot Park, is now at level 4, that seems unlikely .

Sarah, Duchess of York, had planned to spend Christmas with her daughters Beatrice and Eugenie for the first time since her divorce in 1996.
