Prince Charles 'Has Been In A Wretched Mood' Ever Since Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's Bombshell Interview, Source Spills
Talk about a rough couple of weeks.
It's best to avoid Prince Charles following the explosive claims Prince Harry and Meghan Markle made during their bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, OK! has learned.
"Charles has been in a wretched mood ever since this scandal blew up, and to say he's tough company at the moment is an understatement," the OK! insider dishes, adding: "[Duchess] Camilla's been keeping her distance because, quite frankly, he's like a bear with a sore head!"
Charles and Harry's strained relationship seems to be at a stand-still. Meanwhile, a source says Camilla has been tirelessly supportive towards Queen Elizabeth II these last few weeks as she's dealt with Prince Philip's health woes, as well as the fall out from Harry and Meghan's CBS tell-all on Sunday, March 7 — during which the couple accused the royal family of racism, callous behavior and epic betrayals.
As OK! previously reported, Harry told the talk show titan that he felt his dad and brother, Prince William, were "trapped" in royal life. The red-headed prince also said he felt let down by his father, who allegedly stopped taking his calls just before he and Meghan announced that they were stepping down as senior royals.

"I will always love him," Harry said of Charles, "but 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."
And while the Duke of Sussex finally had a conversation with the Prince of Wales and Duke of Cambridge after the interview, Gayle King reported that Harry's talks with Charles and William were "unproductive."
It shouldn't come as a surprise that Harry's chat with Charles didn't conclude with a reconciliation, as OK! previously reported: "Charles does not agree with Harry trashing his whole family in public."
During the couple's sit-down with Oprah, Harry and Meghan cited the "lack of support" from the royal family as one of the reasons they decided to step away from their senior royal duties. They also revealed that there were "conversations" and "concern" over the color of Archie's skin before he was born.
Harry refused to disclose which royal members took part in the shocking conversations; however, he confirmed to Oprah that Her Majesty and Prince Philip were not involved.
