Prince Charles has denied accusations that a Saudi billionaire donated thousands of pounds to one of his charities in return for a knighthood, but the allegations are likely to have caused embarrassment for the future king.
Referring to the Sussexes interview with Oprah last March, Ms Tominey argued Harry has “accused his father and brother of being ‘trapped’ in the monarchy”.
According to insiders, this has driven a further wedge between Prince Charles and his son.
When Prince Harry appeared on Oprah he added to the division when he complained that his father “literally” cut him off financially.
There are claims that Prince Charles and Prince Harry’s relationship is strained
Ms Tominey cites money as “playing a part in the breakdown of the relationship with father and son”.
The Daily Telegraph quotes a royal source as saying, “like any parent, Charles did get fed up with the constant calls from Harry for more money.
“He did his utmost to make them feel financially supported.
“I think a lot of parents will be able to identify with that.”

The royal journalist wrote: “It has not gone unnoticed behind palace gates that Harry cutting himself off from the rest of his family appears to echo Meghan’s relationship with her own father, Thomas Markle.
“Tellingly, however, those who know Charles best insist he won’t be angry at Harry’s latest salvo, just sad.”
The Daily Telegraph quoted a palace source as saying “the prince absolutely adores Harry.
“He will feel absolutely devastated by this, distraught.
“He’ll be beside himself if this means he also becomes more ostracised from his grandchildren.
“It’s such a sad state of affairs.”
Responding to Ms Tominey’s article, Daily Mail Diary Editor and broadcaster Richard Eden tweeted: “Interesting point about Prince Harry’s worsening relationship with Prince Charles in Camilla Tominey’s article in the Telegraph.”
