King Charles has one major regret about how he raised Prince Harry, expert claims

By Staff

Prince Harry and his brother Prince William enjoyed a very laidback upbringing, with one expert claiming they were allowed to do ‘more or less what they wanted’

Prince Harry seems to be mending his strained relationship with his father King Charles, with one royal expert suggesting they were “very, very close” before their feud.

Harry has hit out at his dad on multiple occasions since stepping back from the Royal Family, accusing the King or lying and making jokes at his son’s expense. Royal expert Ingrid Seward said despite this, the pair “got on incredibly well” when Harry was younger.

However, she claimed the monarch regrets the way he raised his son and said Charles believes Harry and his brother Prince William could have benefited from more discipline. Ingrid said the King wasn’t strict with his children as he went along with the late Princess Diana’s “freestyle of bringing up children”.

“Prince Harry and King Charles were very, very close. They got on incredibly well. I think Charles probably regrets that he wasn’t strict with Harry and William,” Ingrid told Fox News Digital.

She added: “Diana allowed them to do, more or less, what they wanted, which was very fashionable in those days. You let children just get on with things.

“I think Charles probably regrets that he wasn’t a bit stricter, because it might’ve given both boys a few more boundaries. Children all need boundaries, and I don’t think they had too many.”

Ingrid’s comments come after Harry recently visited his father after the monarch was diagnosed with cancer. The Duke of Sussex flew to London back in February and enjoyed a half-an-hour conversation with the King.

Harry then revealed his plans to return to the UK once again and hopefully reunite with the Royal Family. During an appearance on Good Morning America, he said: “So my family and my life in California is as it is. I have got other trips planned. That would take me through the UK or back to the UK, so you know, I’ll stop in and see my family as much as I can.”

He also said he was “grateful” to have been able to visit the King earlier this year. “Look I love my family. The fact that I was able to get on a plane and go and see him and spend any time with him I’m grateful for that,” Harry said.
