Prince Harry and Prince Charles have reportedly improved their relationship since their alleged falling-out earlier this year, a royal expert has claimed.
The Prince of Wales, 73, and his youngest son the Duke of Sussex, 37, have had to learn to express themselves more clearly in the wake of Meghan Markle and Harry's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, according to royal author Stewart Pearce.
Pearce, who has written a new book Diana: The Voice of Change, about the Royal Family, said the pair had "absolutely" healed some of their tensions.
In March, shortly after the Sussexes had moved permanently to California with their baby son Archie, the couple sat down with Oprah for an interview.
During the conversation broadcast by CBS, Harry opened up about his relationship with his father, claiming Charles had refused to take his calls during the recent drama and admitted: "There's a lot to work through."

Speaking to US Weekly, Pearce said Harry and Charles' "style of managing that level of emotional intensity is completely different".
He went on: "Prince Charles is, by nature, a very shy man and likes to be by himself.
"That doesn't mean he's uncaring, he just finds demonstration or emotional display really difficult."

He claimed Charles "closes down" more easily while Harry is often "more forthcoming" with his feelings.
One of the most controversial moments in Harry's Oprah interview was when he said he felt "let down" by his father because he had "been through something similar" with their mother Princess Diana.
He said that Charles "knows what pain feels like," and insisted he would "always love him", despite the fact there was "a lot of hurt" in their relationship.

In April, it was reported by Us Weekly that Charles was "still fuming" about Harry's comments, although Pearce insisted their relationship was salvageable.
"We don't realise often that the person that we want support from is extraordinarily busy because we are involved in our own particular preoccupation," he added.
This month, an insider claimed that Charles and Harry are "on speaking terms" again, even if it wasn't "all roses" between the pair yet.

In the wake of the Oprah interview, relations were reportedly further strained by the release of Finding Freedom, an unauthorised biography of Harry and Meghan which contained a number of revelations about Megxit, including about comments allegedly made by Camilla.
This week, royal expert Neil Sean claimed the discovery that Meghan's former aide was in contact with Finding Freedom's authors also "shocked Charles to the core".
A spokesperson for Clarence House strongly denied any allegations that Camilla had asked about the skin colour of Harry and Meghan's future children before Archie's birth, telling reporters: "This is fiction and not worth further comment."
