Earlier, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly had rented a mansion next door to their pals Sir Elton John worth £8million.

William, known as the Earl of Strathearn in Scotland, had been scheduled to be visiting this week.

The Duke of Cambridge was due to be in Scotland this week, fulfilling the role of Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, which is conferred by the Queen.

During the call, Mr Farrally said: "You'll know yourself, the hardest time is dinner time".

And while we've been able to get at least some version of a royal fashion fix thanks to all the Zoom meetings the duchess is holding, there's one thing that's missing: her shoes. "But if you put something on the table they don't want, that's another ball game".

She wrote: "My husband has terminated the lease on our New York City residence. without my consent". You find the thing that helps you relax and if you don't have it, you have to look for it.

The prince also spoke to Michaela Collins, who started visiting Peek when she was aged nine before becoming a volunteer, and then chief executive. Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph yesterday, Eimear said William - who spent over 30 minutes speaking to the group - was "extremely friendly". "What I think has been really helpful is a lot of work has been done to think about how young people can care for themselves, how parents can care for them, to help them to survive and to thrive even through the pandemic".

A third person added: "I like that - comes across as more personal!"

In another call to the charity Finding Your Feet, the prince spoke to founder Corinne Hutton. Support from the National Emergencies Trust Coronavirus Appeal and Foundation Scotland at the beginning of the pandemic allowed them to adapt their services to provide online and telephone counselling.

William was told that innovative ways have been thought up to put vulnerable children at ease during the coronavirus crisis.

The call highlighted the work of Lifelines Scotland, which helps emergency responders and volunteers learn how to cope with stress and look after their own mental health.
