Amid the ever-evolving dynamics within the British royal family, King Charles's feelings of disappointment regarding his younger son, Prince Harry, have not waned, as reported by notable royal insider Duncan Larcombe. The recent reports suggest that the King, feeling the weight of Harry's perceived 'betrayal', has adopted an indirect approach to communication with the Duke of Sus*ex.

Speaking to The Sun, which was later relayed by GB News, Larcombe stated, "It seems King Charles has decided to operate on a strictly formal basis when it comes to interactions with Harry. The underlying sentiment is, 'Should you wish to converse with me, a scheduled meeting is required.'"

Delving deeper into the intricacies of the palace's current atmosphere, the commentator added, “For Harry to get a word in with his father now, it's not just a simple call. He'd have to navigate through the layers of palace aides, almost like clearing hurdles, before reaching the King."

King Charles' Cautious Distance

This distant, more bureaucratic approach, as Larcombe interprets, is more than just palace protocol. "There's a palpable tension. The King's present demeanor towards Harry seems a bit aloof, perhaps his subtle way of expressing his discontent with his son's actions."

The bone of contention, as clarified by Larcombe, seems to revolve around some remarks made by Prince Harry. These comments, perceived as ‘deeply hurtful’, were targeted towards Camilla. Nonetheless, King Charles hasn't completely shut the doors of communication. Larcombe points out that the King still maintains correspondence with Harry, "However, it's more of a written affair now, devoid of the personal touch it once had.”

The insights from Larcombe underline the complexities and strains of the father-son relationship, which is further magnified under the ever-watchful eye of the public and media. Whether these relations will mend or continue on this strained path remains to be seen.
