Prince Harry 'misses his family' post-Megxit, conversations with Prince Harry 'awkward' - reports

Prince Harry is said to be missing his family following his and wife Meghan Markle's official exit from royal life.

The Duke of Sussex has been staying in touch with his father, Prince Charles, who recently recovered from coronavirus, and "loves his grandmother", according to Entertainment Tonight.

"Harry misses his family," a source reportedly told the outlet.

Meanwhile, a report from US Weekly earlier this month claimed that while Harry still speaks with his brother Prince William, things have become "awkward".

"[William] is hurt that Harry isn't in London to support the family amid the coronavirus outbreak," a 'royal insider' reportedly told the tabloid.

Despite the tension within the family, Charles was said to have "found a great deal of comfort" in his conversations with Harry while recuperating from COVID-19.

Harry and William's grandmother Queen Elizabeth sent a personal message to New Zealanders amid the coronavirus outbreak, in which she wrote: "Kia kaha".

"I send my enduring thanks to those who continue to put the service of others above themselves, whether by staying at home, providing essential services or by caring for the most vulnerable," she said.

"It is through this sense of community, dedication and faith, that I am confident New Zealanders will rise to the challenge and overcome."
