Prince Charles is reportedly “boiling with anger” toward his son, Prince Harry, after the latter slammed his father during an interview with Oprah Winfrey.
According to the details, Harry launched an AppleTV+ series alongside Winfrey, The Me You Can’t See, digging into the private lives and histories of popular figures.
In one of the first episodes of the mental illness awareness show, Harry claimed that his father made him “suffer” growing up as a member of the royal family. The Duke of Sussex, 36, discussed his childhood claiming his father, 72, didn’t understand why he and Meghan Markle “chose to put our mental health first” when they made their royal exit.
According to royal expert Nick Bullen, Charles is “hurt” and “disappointed” by his youngest son’s comments. “It appears nothing is off limits now,” the editor in chief of True Royal TV told Us Weekly. “[It’s sad] that their private family affairs are being aired in public yet again.”
The revelations have come as a major surprise to Charles, who “is boiling with anger” over Harry’s stunts, per a source. “[He] feels tortured by Harry with his constant digs. He wishes he’d just let it drop,” the insider explained.
“The general consensus within the royal family is to ignore Harry’s behavior, to avoid fanning the flames, but Charles is finding it hard to hold back. He really wants to defend himself,” the insider added.
Despite everything that has happened, Bullen thinks that reconciliation between Harry and Charles could be on the horizon.
“I am sure the royal family will welcome the new baby with open arms,” Bullen said. “A new life is often a great way to help try and repair the rifts in any family, royal or not.”
