PRINCE Charles has been left “feeling wretched” after Harry’s relentless attacks on his father’s parenting skills.
The Duke of Sussex has repeatedly attacked Charles in the media over the past few months, including in two Oprah Winfrey interviews in which he effectively accused his father of bullying him and Prince William.
Harry said he didn’t blame Charles for his parenting failings, however, suggesting the future king was brought up in a similarly tough way in a comment that appeared to attack the Queen and Prince Philip‘s parenting.
“Charles is such a gentle man and a dedicated father first and foremost. He’ll be feeling wretched. He wants to seek a reconciliation. He is not vindictive at all…” an insider told the Mail on Sunday.
“Charles will want to engage, but it’s fair to say what Harry has said in both interviews with Oprah has been seen as very callous within the family. If Harry was to attack the Queen in a more personal way, Charles would close ranks with the Queen without a doubt and Harry would be out in the cold.”
The source added that Harry’s relentless rants have been “very upsetting for the Royal Family”.
“Harry’s grandmother has taken this very personally and is deeply upset by what Harry has said, in particular his comments about Charles’s parenting and suggesting [he] knows no better because of how he was brought up”.
