King Charles seems unwilling to set aside his lingering resentment toward Prince Harry, evident in his decision to exclude Harry from the guest list for his 75th birthday celebration.
In an exclusive interview with Fox News Digital, renowned royal author Christopher Andersen delved into the motivations behind the monarch’s choice, pointing to a specific incident that might have fueled the tension.
Andersen suggested, “My feeling is that Charles can so easily turn his back on Harry because Harry committed the one unforgivable sin: Harry dissed Camilla in his book, ‘Spare,’ branding her a ‘villain.'”
The author further elaborated on Charles’ perspective, highlighting the deep connection he shares with his second wife, Queen Camilla. Andersen explained, “He could have trashed [Prince] William and the monarchy all he wanted, but King Charles is wildly, blindly devoted to Queen Camilla. King Charles III angers easily, and he holds grudges.”
The focal point of the rift appears to be Harry’s memoir, where he characterized the former Duchess of Cornwall as a ‘wicked stepmother’ and accused her of establishing connections with the British press. This portrayal seems to have intensified Charles’ animosity.
“The fact that Harry and Meghan weren’t even invited to the king’s milestone 75th birthday really speaks volumes about just how irreconcilable the Sussexes and the Windsors are,” remarked Andersen. “You can only burn bridges so many times.”
As the royal expert concluded, “The bottom line is that the Sussexes and the rest of the royal family will continue to have nothing to do with each other for the foreseeable future, full stop.” The intricacies of this familial discord and the potential long-term repercussions seem to be unfolding, leaving observers intrigued by the dynamics within the royal household.
