Prince Harry’s money comment to Oprah ‘upset Charles most’ claims royal expert

Prince Harry "upset Prince Charles the most" when he publicly criticised his father for cutting off his private funding on the interview with Oprah Winfrey, a royal expert has claimed.

The Duke of Sussex spoke out in March and explained his family had put an end to his financial support when he left the UK with Meghan Markle and their son Archie.

In a new documentary Charles and Harry: Father & Son Divided, which will be aired on Channel 5 on Saturday night, royal insiders delved into the issue Harry mentioned in the bombshell interview.

The royal said when he was in Canada, he had two conversations with Prince Charles before he stopped taking calls.

"My family literally cut me off financially and I had to afford security for us," he told Oprah.

"On the security element, I never thought I would have my security removed because I was born into this position, I inherited the risk. That was a shock to me."

NBC royal correspondent Daisy McAndrew said: "I suspect it was that bit of the interview which upset Charles the most that he felt very let down by that public criticism."

And royal author Tom Quinn, who wrote Kensington Palace: An Intimate Memoir, believed that moment was where the problem rises because Harry feels that "not giving the money he wants is not giving the love he wants".

He added: "Traditionally before Harry stopped being working royal, he gets about 5% of income from the sovereign grant, the other 5% will be from his father and the Duchy of Cornwall."

Prince Harry also faced criticism when he said he had to use the money he inherited from the late Princess Diana to support and protect the family.

His own biographer Angela Levin said: "Harry, he's got £30 million, most of it is from his mother and also a considerable amount from Elizabeth the Queen Mother, so he's not exactly what you'd call 'poor'."

Charles & Harry: Father & Son Divided airs on Channel 5 on Saturday May 15 at 9pm – 10:30pm
