  • Prince Harry and Prince William weren't speaking to each other ahead of Archie's birth during the peak of their royal feud.
  • The brothers had a falling out over William not being welcoming enough to Meghan Markle.

Remember ye olden days of early 2019 when the internet was all aflutter with rumors of a ~royal feud~ between Prince Harry and Prince William? Truly, it was the woofiest. But it looks like Archie's birth has helped the brothers come back together, which, yay!

Apparently, Harry and William had a falling out around Christmas 2017, when Harry confronted his brother about not being welcoming enough to Meghan Markle. "Harry felt William wasn’t rolling out the red carpet for Meghan and told him so," a source told royal reporter Katie Nicholl. "They had a bit of a fall-out which was only resolved when Charles stepped in and asked William to make an effort. That’s when the Cambridges invited the Sussexes to spend Christmas with them."

Flash-forward to Baby Archie's arrival and the brothers are getting along much better, and William is super happy for Harry. "It's absolutely the case that the brothers did fall out," Nicholl tells ET. "I was told by a very senior royal source that actually they weren't talking to each other at one point. I certainly think now that Archie is here, it has probably really helped to improve the relationship. William is over-the-moon that his brother is a dad."

Meanwhile, Nicholl says that she hears "Kate has made herself available to Meghan if she needs advice, if she needs any help, and Kate said to her, 'I'm here. I'm here for you.'"

In other words: DRAMA, WHAT DRAMA?
