Queen Elizabeth II is reportedly tired of Prince Charles’s attitude toward Prince Harry.

On May 6, Us Weekly reported that Prince Charles “may never forgive” his son for the tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey that caused quite a bit of backlash against the royal family. The queen’s supposed thoughts? Get over it.

“With the way things are going, Charles may never forgive Harry, which hasn’t gone down well with Elizabeth,” the source said. “She feels that he’s putting his pride before the best interest of the monarchy. She has enough on her plate dealing with the loss of her husband. It’s drama she can do without.”

While Prince Willam and Prince Harry reportedly started a dialogue at their grandfather Prince Philip’s funeral, this source claims that Prince Charles is more “stubborn.” This tracks with a report in April that Prince Charles has allegedly chosen to “freeze out” his youngest son.

“Charles is working toward a new slimmed-down monarchy and is freezing Harry out. He’s actually already out,”  a source told Us Weekly in a report published on April 29. “After the damage Harry has caused the family, he firmly believes that his son doesn’t deserve the privilege of being a royal.”

This may have something to do with Prince Harry’s particularly damning critiques of his father in the March Oprah Winfrey interview. During the chat, the Duke of Sussex revealed his father stopped taking his calls when his family first moved to Canada and was dealing with startling security concerns. 

“I feel really let down because he’s been through something similar. He knows what pain feels like, and Archie’s his grandson,” Prince Harry told Winfrey, referring specifically to the parallels between Meghan Markle and Princess Diana. “But at the same time, I will always love him. There’s a lot of hurt that’s happened, and I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship.” Prince Harry also said “there’s a lot to work through there” to repair their father-son bond.

In the newest Us Weekly report, the insider revealed that Queen Elizabeth much prefers Prince William’s “dignified approach” toward her other grandson. 

“They’re definitely not at the point where they speak on a regular basis, but William wants to be the bigger person and set a precedent. He believes that in order to repair damage and destruction from Harry’s interview, the best approach is to keep things civil with his brother rather than fanning the flames and fighting back with a tit-for-tat attitude,” the source says. “Elizabeth is proud of William for taking the dignified approach, unlike Charles, who still hasn’t forgiven Harry for dragging his name through the mud.”

While the phrasing of that quote seems to put Prince Harry at fault as opposed to those who reportedly made it impossible for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to safely remain in the U.K., it’s good to know some members of the royal family are making an effort.
