Prince Charles Is Reportedly Freezing Out Prince Harry: He’s ‘Still Fuming’


Prince Harry may have opened the door to reconciliation with most of the royal family, but things are reportedly still tense with Prince Charles. 

During Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey, which aired in early March, the Duke of Sussex revealed that Prince Charles stopped taking his calls when he initially relocated to Canada. While that changed eventually, the younger prince still said, “There’s a lot to work through there.”

Well, it seems that a visit to the U.K. for Prince Philip’s funeral did not do much to move the needle. “Unfortunately, Harry and Charles didn’t resolve their differences when Harry returned to the U.K. They barely communicated,” a source told Us Weekly in a report published on April 29. “There definitely continues to be a huge wedge between the two.”

While Prince Harry and Prince William were spotted talking in private, sources say that Prince Charles is “still fuming” about the interview. 

“I feel really let down because he’s been through something similar. He knows what pain feels like, and Archie’s his grandson,” Prince Harry told Winfrey, referring specifically to the parallels between Meghan Markle and Princess Diana. “But at the same time, I will always love him. There’s a lot of hurt that’s happened, and I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship. They only know what they know, and that’s the thing: I’ve tried to educate them through the process I have been educated.”

That really didn’t go over well with Prince Charles, according to the source. “Charles is working toward a new slimmed-down monarchy and is freezing Harry out. He’s actually already out,” the source says. “After the damage Harry has caused the family, he firmly believes that his son doesn’t deserve the privilege of being a royal.”

But that doesn’t mean Prince Harry has been banging down his father’s door. “To be honest, Harry didn’t go running back to Charles, begging for forgiveness, either,” the source also said. “He still hasn’t forgiven his father for his lack of effort and support after he and Meghan decided to move. The reason Harry went back to the U.K. was to see the queen and to pay his respects to Prince Philip. That’s about as far as it goes.”

They added, “To put it bluntly, it’s unlikely that we’ll be seeing Harry and Charles making amends anytime soon.”
