So Prince Charles is apparently in a “state of despair” over revelations Prince Harry made about their relationship in the interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Harry said he felt “really let down” by his dad’s lack of support, and that the 72-year-old heir to the throne had stopped taking his calls. But he also expressed hope that the two could one day “heal that relationship.”
One of Charles’ friends told Vanity Fair that the interview — which first aired in the US on Sunday — has left him in a “state of despair.”
“For Prince Harry to say that he felt let down by his father must have been a difficult thing to say and hard for Charles to hear,” royal author Sarah Gristwood told the magazine.
But Prince Charles was out and about this morning, visiting a National Health Service COVID-19 vaccine pop-up clinic in London.
He appeared in good spirits, despite the report, and was seen thanking helpers. But according to Sky News, he declined to comment on the interview when pressed by reporters.
