Prince Charles enjoys a close relationship with both of his sons, though it hasn’t always been that way. Royal biographer Penny Junior has noted that when the boys were young, Charles wasn’t able to spend as much time with them as he might have liked.
“It is a slightly tricky relationship because Charles has always been quite a remote figure, he has always been consumed by work. That’s not a product of a lack of love. It’s a product of the fact he is so focused on his work, and the need to make a difference in the world that, like many people who are seeking to make a difference in the world, he has sometimes overlooked friends and loved ones beside him.”
But in recent years it’s become clear that the three genuinely love and respect one another. Prince Charles and Prince William share a particularly unique connection, as they are first and second in line to inherit the throne.
As part of that relationship, the two will assume many of the same responsibilities when they pick up the mantle. Prince William recently commented on this fact, and Charles has said that William’s words reduced him to tears.
