The Queen is “constantly annoyed” and “puzzled” by Prince Charles, according to reports.
A ROYAL AUTHOR stated that the Royal Family’s divides extended to The Queen and Prince Charles, claiming that Her Majesty is “constantly upset” with her son.
This week, Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles visited the Ballater Community & Heritage Hub in Ballater, Aberdeenshire, as part of their visit to Scotland. The couple also took a quick stroll about the Scottish village, stopping to interact with residents. The pair frequently accompany the Queen on official tours around the United Kingdom and abroad, however a royal biographer allegedly stated that Her Majesty is “constantly dissatisfied” with her son.
Clive Irving said that Charles and other royals “will never live up to her sense of responsibility” in the Channel 4 documentary Queen Elizabeth: Love, Honour, and Crown, which aired in March this year.
The Queen has “never truly understood” and is “puzzled by” her eldest son Charles, according to royal expert and author of the biography The Last Queen.
“All those around the Queen never measure up to that at any point,” he continued. Her own family hasn’t lived up to her expectations. Charles will never be able to live up to that.”
Mr Irving further said that Prince William is the only member of the royal family who understands the Monarch’s “extremely committed sense of duty.”
According to the royal author, the Queen has a closer relationship with Prince Andrew, Charles’s brother, saying, “To this day, she’s more overtly devoted to Andrew and more forgiving toward Andrew than she is toward Charles.”
The distinctions between Charles and Andrew were also examined by Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine.
Andrew can be “charming,” but he can also be “arrogant and unpleasant,” and “has some features of his own father,” she noted.
The elder son’s aspirations for a slimmed-down monarchy have also caused friction between Charles and Andrew.
In March 2020, it was also reported that Charles had barred Andrew’s daughters from holding positions within the Royal Family that would allow them to represent the Queen.
Katie Nicholl, a royal specialist, claimed on True Royalty TV that Prince Charles had advised Beatrice and Eugenie to “go and make it on their own.”
“What occurred with Beatrice and Eugenie was also difficult because their father wanted them to have a role within the Royal Family where they could represent the Queen,” Ms Nicholl explained.
“Eugenie and Beatrice wanted to help Granny, but they also desired.”
