Royal Family News: Prince Harry And Prince William Have A Complex Relationship With Prince Charles

Prince Harry And Prince WilliamBritish royal family news reveals that Prince Charles has a complicated father-son relationship with sons Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, Duchess of Sussex according to well-placed palace sources.

Prince Harry himself has been more than willing to come forward and gab about his fraught relationship with dear old dad as he most recently did in a jaw droppingly cringy interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this month.

For starters Harry moaned that his father stopped taking his calls at one point but only after he abandoned the family in a most spectacularly public way.

Amid reports that Charles and Harry spoke over the phone last weekend, sources are spilling to People that the relationship between Charles and his sons has been thorny for years.

Royal Family News – What Is Prince Harry Going To Do Next?

“There has always been this complicated relationship with their dad,” a palace source informed People following the blockbuster Oprah interview.

Apparently the divorce of Prince Charles and Princess Diana was a painful period in the boys’ lives and his subsequent marriage to Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who he had an affair with during his marriage, did little to smooth things out. On top of that, the source adds that Prince Charles controls the money.

“It’s not a straightforward father-son relationship,” the insider said. “He is their father and their boss, and they are beholden to him to fund their offices and lives.”

The source went on to say, “Tension between Charles and the boys has always surrounded money, because Charles is the one who holds all the power.” Of course if they got jobs and/or made money of their own this would not be an issue.

Charles funds his official office through his moneymaker, the Duchy of Cornwall estate, which generates an income of nearly $30 million a year. He also funds William and Kate Middleton through this and previously funded Harry and Meghan Markle as well.

In the Oprah interview, Prince Harry whined, “My family literally cut me off financially” in early 2020, and he had no choice but to snub them in order to become “financially independent.”

The tone deaf elitist further complained that without the millions left to him by his late mother, “we wouldn’t have been able to do this,” referring to his mansion and newfound Cali lifestyle.
