PRINCE CHARLES WAS ‘ALWAYS CLOSER’ TO HARRY THAN WILLIAM, SAYS EXPERT
A royal expert has claimed that Prince Charles is particularly devastated about the feud with his youngest son, which was sparked in earnest by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Oprah interview in March.
Speaking on the True Royalty programme The Royal Beat, author Robert Jobson explained that the Queen’s son, 72, has had a difficult time coming to terms with his 36-year-old second child’s move to the US and his public criticism of the royals.
The royal commentator, who co-wrote the 2002 book Diana: Closely Guarded Secret, said: “I think that he was closer to Harry and that’s why it’s hit him quite hard with what’s happened with Harry.”
Jobson made the comment while discussing the late King George VI’s relationship with his youngest child, Princess Margaret.
Referring to the Queen’s father, he said: “He had a deep affection for both his daughters and protected them, but he had a trust in the Queen – Princess Elizabeth – he felt that she was a solid character.”
