Prince Charles’s bond with Harry is said to still be strong despite the bombshell new book on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex which made fresh claims about their departure from royal life. The heir to the throne is in regular contact with his youngest son, who is living in the US.
A source said: “They have a very strong and close father-and-son relationship.
“Many people have speculated that the book was the end for Harry and Meghan in Britain.
“Too many people were criticised and too many people attacked, including William and Kate.
“But the Prince of Wales has made it clear the door is always open.
“Since his move to Los Angeles, they have been in regular contact.
“Charles is not an avid user of texts but there are video and phone calls.
“The book has never been a massive talking point between them and Charles is determined that it is not an obstacle.
“He has provided financial support, as any father would do when their son moves with a young family to the other side of the world.”

Harry, Meghan and their one-year-old son Archie are living in a £15 million mansion in LA.
They sensationally ended royal duties earlier this year in a move dubbed Megxit.
New book Finding Freedom by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand has brought fresh allegations of a downturn in relations between the Sussexes and other members of the Royal Family.
Claims include that Clarence House was left “crushed” when Harry confirmed his relationship with Meghan in November 2016, which dominated the news cycle and took the limelight from Charles and Camilla’s Gulf tour.
The book also alleges that Harry was infuriated by his older brother Prince William’s “snobbish” attitude to Meghan.
By March the Sussexes and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were barely speaking, according to the book.
The book also claims a secret website unveiled by Meghan and Harry when they announced plans to step back as senior royals in January “hurt” the Queen.
And being told to operate under Buckingham Palace’s umbrella after splitting their household from the Cambridges was “a big disappointment” to Meghan and Harry, according to the book.
