Since losing his mother at the age of 12, Harry’s relationship with his father Prince Charles was strained.

During his adolescent years when he was acting out, some members of the royal family placed the blame on his father.

They accused Prince Charles of focusing more on his new wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, than in his two sons, especially Harry who took the loss of his mother particularly hard.

Prince Charles gave Meghan away after her father was unable to attend the ceremony and the father and son shared a tender moment.

When Charles handed over Meghan to her husband-to-be there was a brief moment of tenderness between the pair.

It was enough to bring tears to our eyes.

The change in Harry’s attitude to his father seems to coincide with the arrival in his life of Meghan Markle.

And while Prince Harry’s coldness towards his father has been well documented, Prince William doesn’t have the closest relationship with his father either.

He preferred to model himself and his future time as king after his grandmother, rather than his father.

It’s believed the distance between the two sons and their father is due to Camilla, whom he had an affair with during his marriage to their mother Diana.
