The Palace is not happy about recent reports that Prince Charles does not get along with his sons, Prince William and Prince Harry, so they responded with a rare statement in an attempt to clear things up. Clarence House says that the claims are “complete fiction,” and Charles and his kids are on good terms.
The rumor of a feud between Prince Charles and his son started after a source told the Daily Beast in an article titled “Inside the Cold War Between Prince Charles and William and Harry” that there had been a blowout fight between the three of them.
“They are very different people and they just don’t get on. It’s as simple as that,” said the alleged insider. “They rarely see each other outside of official business.”

The Duke of Rothesay with The Queen and The Princess Royal at the annual Braemar Gathering. Her Majesty and Their Royal Highnesses joined thousands of spectators to watch the Highland Games which featured events such as the Caber Toss, Tug O War and traditional Highland dancing.
The source also claimed that Charles hated when his sons participated in public “emoting” about their late mother, Princess Diana. Of course, this is all incredibly hard to believe, but the Royals found it necessary to let the world know that it was all untrue.
Meanwhile, People Magazine is reporting that Prince William surprised workers on a BBC One renovation show who were working on tackling the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower tragedy in London. Last summer, flames engulfed the tower and killed seventy-two people, resulting in one of the worst disasters ever in the U.K.

At a youth boxing club, William showed up wearing a hard hat and safety vest, then he grabbed a paint roller to help with the project. He also explained to DIYSOS host Nick Knowles that the brutal, horrendous disaster shocked everyone, and now they are playing catch-up and trying to figure out how to deal with such a terrible situation.
William said that he and other members of the royal family are supporting the community where they can because progress needs to happen. He explained that the community is reliving the tragedy all of the time and they are in need, and everyone coming together is an important part of fixing things. But, there is still a lot to do.
Prince Harry, Kate Middleton, and Meghan Markle have all done behind-the-scenes work to support the community after the disaster.
Back in 2015, William and Harry both helped volunteers on the BBC show as they renovated homes in Manchester for veterans of the armed forces. William took on the role of painter during both of his show appearances, and he joked, “I thought after Manchester you wouldn’t ask me back.”
Prince Charles and his sons have not made a joint public appearance in weeks.
