The three of them have been living with Harry during lockdown, along with Harry's friend Michael Gunning, with Rebecca inviting them to stay in her house so that Summer was able to spend time with her father.

Rebecca and Harry split in 2016 after 18 months of marriage, but are on good terms.

Speaking about their decision to spend lockdown together, a source previously told The Sun: "Their arrangement is very amicable and they’re doing what’s best for Summer.

"They still get on really well despite their split, so why not? And Harry’s friend Michael is close with the others too.

"They’re all really enjoying each other’s company and, what with their shared interest in swimming, it was a no-brainer."

Harry previously posted a photo of the five of them together captioned: "Couldn’t wish to be stuck at home with a better bunch."
