Prince Charles is “absolutely furious” that his sons’ row has been made public, according to a royal source.
He believes the rift between Harry and William is distracting from the work he and the rest of the royal family are doing, the insider said.
Harry made headlines this week after he appeared to confirm that he and his brother had fallen out.
“Part of this role and part of this job, and this family being under the pressure it’s under, inevitably stuff happens. But, look, we’re brothers, we’ll always be brothers,” Harry told an ITV reporter in a new documentary.
“We’re certainly on different paths at the moment. But I will always be there for him, as I know he’ll always be there for me.
“Y’know, as brothers, you have good days, you have bad days.”
The admission is said to have gone down badly with Charles, who doesn’t want the controversy overshadowing the family.
“The Prince of Wales is very busy at the moment touring Japan, including a visit with the Welsh rugby team. But the point is that this whole kerfuffle has completely undermined the work he is doing, just as it undermined the work Prince William and Kate were doing in Pakistan,” the royal source told The Sun.
Charles also has a new documentary airing this evening, Prince Charles: Inside the Duchy of Cornwall, and fears it has been ignored, the insider added.
“It’s been completely and utterly annihilated, all because these two [Meghan and Harry] think they’ve reinvented the wheel.”
