Charles ‘strikes back’ against Harry’s claims he was ‘cut off financially’

2 min read

Prince Charles saw his "opportunity to strike back" against son Prince Harry when the royal published the finance report to show he gave money to the Sussexes, a royal editor commented.

The annual royal accounts, which was published earlier this week, showed the Prince of Wales continued to support both Harry and Meghan Markle with a "substantial sum" in the months after they stood down as senior royals.

Harry previously told Oprah Winfrey in a televised interview in March that his family "literally cut me off financially" in the first quarter of 2020.

ITV's royal editor Chris Ship believed the royal finance report gave Prince Charles a chance to attack Prince Harry over his allegations.

He spoke on Friday's podcast Royal Rota: "Words from the [Clarence House] spokesperson were presumably deliberately put into the public domain.

"Almost as if you were using the excuse or at least they had the opportunity to say these words because if they'd put them out any other time it might look a little churlish.

"But they were able to put them out because they were talking about finances and you might call it a bit of a strike back from from the Prince of Wales to what was said earlier in the year."

Co-host Lizzie Robinson read from the Clarence House financial report and mentioned they had contributed to a £4.5m bill for both Prince William and Prince Harry's families.

"So we can't give you exactly what Harry was paid, we can't tell you when it was paid," Chris continued.

"The response from the Sussexes was to say that Prince Harry was referring to the very first quarter of the financial year which I think Prince Charles was as well to be fair.

"But both sides were sort of at pains to point out that these statements aren't dramatically different.

"I kind of think they are and I think most normal people would think they are too."
