Royal fans have said that Prince Charles 'needs Prince Harry more than ever' after extending an 'olive branch' to his son yesterday.
In a New Year essay published in Newsweek, Charles praised both Harry and Prince William for their work in raising awareness around environmental issues.
This came after reports suggested Harry and Charles were not on speaking terms at different points last year.
However, Charles wrote in yesterday's release: "My younger son, Harry, has passionately highlighted the impact of climate change, especially in relation to Africa, and committed his charity to being net-zero."
Both royal fans and experts have described the release as an "olive branch" considering the pair's supposed rift over Harry and Meghan Markle's move to the US.
People on Twitter were quick to react to the 'olive branch', with many suggesting that it isn't enough on Charles' behalf and that the father needs his son.
One person joked: "He needs less of an olive branch and more of a birch branch."
Another fumed: "I keep being confused by Prince Charles offering an olive branch TO Prince Harry. He should be wishing Prince Harry offers HIM an olive branch IMO."
"Harry should tell him where to shove his olive branch," another jibed.
A fourth said: "I wonder who finally opened Charles' eyes in realising Harry was never his rival? He needs Harry more than ever."
According to one royal expert, yesterday's olive branch could have greater significance than is initially obvious.
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliam has said that Charles' nod to Harry may delay the publishing of the Duke of Sussex's upcoming tell-all memoir, which is expected to cover the relationship between father and son.
He told The Sun: "I think if you offer an olive branch it's only reasonable to expect something in return.
"I would have thought that some form of either postponement of the autobiography.
"Or indeed some form of clarification as to when or what years it will cover (can be expected)."
