Prince William and Prince Harry are closer to each other than their dad King Charles. They grew up with a special bond. When they were grown up, the two princes allegedly had conflicts with their father involving money.
King Charles And Sons Prince William And Prince Harry Fought Over Money?
Money is probably not an issue for the royal family. However, it wasn't true all the time, according to a report. There were even times when King Charles had conflicts with his sons due to it.
Royal biographers Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand claimed in their book Finding Freedom that the Prince of Wales and Duke of Sussex "can be hot and cold with their father." The author cited a 2018 incident when their conflict was apparent, Marie Claire reported.
According to Scobie and Durand, King Charles planned a photo shoot for his 70th birthday, but it turned out to be an "absolute nightmare" because “William nor Harry made much of an effort to make themselves available” for the shoot.
They claimed that money was the chief cause of the conflict because Prince William and Prine Harry "had to vie for additional funds for project from their father."
"They actually genuinely have to debate who gets what amount from their father to fund their projects. While Charles may be a father to [William and] Harry, he’s also their boss, and that makes their relationship complex for a number of reasons,” Scobie and Durand added.
How's King Charles' Relationship With Prince William And Prince Harry Today?
In 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced that they were stepping back from their royal duties. Shortly after carrying out their final engagement, they flew to Canada and then to the United States. The couple decided to settle in Los Angeles, California, following Megxit.
Royal biographer Phil Dampier claimed that Prince Harry's departure brought his father, King Charles, and brother Prince William, closer to one another. When Prince Philip passed away in 2021, the Queen turned to the father and son for advice, strengthening King Charles and Prince William's tandem.
"If anything, the departure of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – and the fact that William has fallen out with Harry – has brought him and Charles closer," Dampier said, Express reported.
The loss, their positions in the monarchy and the circumstances they faced following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey also reportedly brought King Charles and Prince William together.
"Following his father’s death, Charles is now spending a lot more time at Sandringham, the Queen’s Norfolk home, where he has taken over a lot of Prince Philip’s duties," he continued. "The Cambridges spend most weekends at Anmer Hall, their country pile up there, which means father and son are now seeing a lot more of each other. They have also undoubtedly bonded over the fallout of the Oprah Winfrey interview."
Several sources claimed that Prince Harry has a strained relationship with his dad King Charles and brother Prince William. However, royal biographer Christopher Andersen told Fox News Digital that the monarch "still has affection" for his youngest son.
