King Charles’ reported travel plans could be the first step forward amid the feud with Prince Harry

King Charles’ reported travel plans could be the first step forward amid the feud with Prince Harry

Despite the Sussexes’ long-running feud with the rest of the royal family, not everyone is looking forward to a happy ending. A source told New Idea that Prince William doesn’t support his father’s attempts to make peace, revealing: “William can’t understand why Charles would take such a risk.” This storyline isn’t all that surprising, given the toll Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s departures have taken on William and Kate Middleton’s marriage. The insider added that Charles’ wife has similar sentiments, but for different reasons: “(Queen) Camilla is against the trip, more for health reasons. The tour of Australia in October will be a lot for a man of his age with cancer, let alone an emotional transatlantic trip to visit his estranged son.”

Ironically, Charles’ heartbreaking cancer diagnosis is a good enough reason for him to refuse any discouraging advice. Despite Queen Elizabeth II’s accomplishments as a monarch, she meant even more to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, who will remember her above all else as a loving matriarch. Perhaps that’s the kind of legacy Charles is more concerned about. After all, in the documentary “Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70,” William confirmed that his father is great with Prince George, Prince Louis, and Princess Charlotte, but that they could really use more time with him (via Hello! magazine).
