Prince Harry’s decision to speak publicly about Prince Charles’s parenting and his own upbringing has reportedly upset Prince William. A royal source claimed the Duke of Cambridge shares some of Harry’s criticism in regards to their upbringing.
However, he “would never even comprehend for one moment” speaking about these issues in public, they added.
The royal source told the MailOnline’s columnist Dan Wootton: “Prince William is, of course, saddened by the recent developments because of the way Prince Harry is putting such deeply personal pain into the public domain, invading all the family’s privacy.
“It is fair to say that, even now, William does privately have conversations about the relationship with his father, which has been strained in the past.
“There was much hurt after his mother’s death and both brothers at times found their father’s commitment to his work difficult to comprehend.
“Just like Harry, William has learned lessons from his upbringing and ensures he puts his family time first above any other commitment.
“But William also believes continually developing and growing his relationship with his father is critical for the future of the monarchy.
“They now have a lot of mutual respect and he would never even comprehend for one moment speaking publicly in the way Harry has done in the past week.”
These remarks reverberate with an analysis of the relationship between Charles and William made last year by royal commentator Camilla Tominey.
Ms Tominey said at the time Prince William had forgiven Prince Charles for the “mistakes of the past”.
She wrote in the Daily Telegraph: “The warmth which so obviously zings between father and son seems to signify a laying to rest of the ghosts of William’s childhood and any soreness he has felt towards his father after witnessing the traumatic fallout out of his parents’ separation as a 10-year-old boy.
“Now a father-of-three in his late thirties, with Charles willingly playing the role of doting grandfather, there is a sense that William has not only forgiven him for the mistakes of the past, but also woken up to the fact his father has been as much of a positive influence as Diana, the late Princess of Wales.”
Prince Harry hit out at the Royal Family in an episode of the Armchair Podcast led by Hollywood actor Dax Shepard.
During the 90-minute-long episode released last week, the Duke of Sussex opened up about his feelings on royal duties when he was in his early 20s.
He also spoke about his approach to mental health, the impact the death of Princess Diana had on him and how therapy helped him getting over his initial reluctance to take on the royal job.
The Duke also shared details of his secret meeting at a London supermarket with Meghan.
And he likened life in the Royal Family to “a mix between The Truman Show and being in a zoo”.
Moreover, he spoke about his own parenting and how he is trying to “break the cycle” of pain while bringing up his children.
He said: “I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody.
“But certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.
“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on.”
The Duke also said parents should try to stop this transfer.
He then added: “I started to piece it together and go ‘okay, so this is where he went to school, this is what happened, I know this about his life, I also know that is connected to his parents so that means he’s treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?'”
