• Prince Charles lacks power 
  • Prince Charles unable to broker peace between his sons 
  • Prince William refused to pay tribute to Prince Charles 

Prince Charles was recently criticized after he met up with Prince Harry to discuss his future plans.

In an article that she wrote for The Spectator, royal expert Camilla Tominey said that the crisis talks organized by Queen Elizabeth was not really a peace summit but an escalation of the ongoing feud among some members of the royal family.

According to the expert, a lot of people questioned why Prince Charles was unable to broker peace between his sons. Tominey said that this is because the royal siblings don’t really listen to their dad because he lacks power.

“Charles has always been desperate for the approval of his two self-confessed ‘mummy’s boys’ and so historically has had to bring in outsiders to read the riot act, such as their former joint private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton,” she said.

More specifically, Tominey claimed that Prince William actually disregards his father’s opinion. And during the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death, Prince Charles’ aides asked the Duke of Cambridge to praise his dad for raising him and Prince Harry, but he refused. At that time, only the Duke of Sussex talked about their father.

Meanwhile, Daily Mirror editor Russell Myers revealed that Prince Charles’ staff blocked the crisis talks for fear that Prince Harry would undermine his father.

On the podcast “Pod Save the Queen,” Myers added that some courtiers were worried that because of Prince Harry’s closeness to the Queen, the monarch could give in to some of his demands. But since Prince Charles and Prince William were also there, no such thing happened.

As of late, Prince Charles has not yet released a statement regarding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s recent exit. But the Queen and Prince William already talked about it publicly.

Her Majesty said that she supports Prince Harry and Markle’s desire to have a new life. Prince William, on the other hand, said that he could no longer wrap his arm around Prince Harry.
