Prince Charles has reportedly branded reports of a rift with sons Prince Harry and Prince William as "complete nonsense".

The heir took issue with claims things were "hot and cold" between him and his sons, well-placed insiders told DailyMirror.

In new bombshell biography Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie, one of the co-authors, made a number of allegations about their relationship.

This week Me Scobie even claimed Charles had "quietly supported" Meghan's decision to sue a British newspaper.

She has taken Associated Newspapers Limited, owner of the Mail on Sunday and MailOnline, to court over five articles which reproduced parts of a handwritten note she sent to her dad in 2018.

Meghan claims her father’s decision to make the letter public was a breach of privacy and copyright.

Mr Scobie’s book suggests Charles valued his own public image above his relationship with his sons.

Harry is said to have been “frustrated” that he and his wife allegedly had to take a back seat to other family members.

Speaking to True Royalty TV, Mr Scobie said: “What is interesting and I found time and time again, his sympathy for the couple was often there (but) he was almost too afraid to voice it or take it any further.

"He quietly supported Harry and Meghan’s decision to sue the Mail on Sunday over the letter – but did he publicly support them? No.”

In the book, Finding Freedom, a source said: “Charles is extremely focused on his public image and there have been times Harry has felt that has taken precedence over everything else.”

Sources close to Charles have called the claims “wholly untrue”.

One insider said: “Not only is this book incredibly one sided for various gripes from Harry and Meghan, claims of breakdowns in the relationship with his father and him supporting their various legal cases are entirely false.”

The book also says Charles’ official 70th birthday photo, which shows three generations of the family, was a “nightmare” to plan because of tensions.

Palace insiders have described the claim as “poppycock”.
