‘Hypocritical’ Prince Charles ‘could send royals over cliff’ fears biographer

Prince Charles has been slammed as "atrociously hypocritical" by a royal biographer, who has warned that the future king could bring the end of the monarchy as we know it.

Clive Irving, author of the new biography The Last Queen, has not held back in his criticism of the Prince of Wales who he says has "serious problems".

According to the royal expert, a major issue Prince Charles, 72, faces is that he looks older than the Queen.

Irving told Vanity Fair : "One problem is that he doesn’t look like an invigorating generational shift, does he?

"That’s what would be needed, something that reinvigorates and sends a sense that they’ve understood the modern world."

The particular way Prince Charles has run The Duchy of Cornwall for so many years, reveals what he will be as monarch, the author added: "He pulls in groups of advisers he targets for his issues and invariably they’re sycophants. He doesn’t like to be challenged, and he thinks like an autocrat. And he’s shown himself to be a hypocrite."

Clive also points the finger at the royal's campaigning to address climate change, while snubbing more eco-friendly commercial flights for private jets.

He said: "He’s born with such a sense of entitlement that it’s never occurred to him that maybe you can’t continue to do that."

That is apparently just one example of his "atrocious act of hypocrisy". The other is calling out Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's attempts to monetise their royal status.

Irving alleges that the Prince of Wales gave birth to the idea by launching his luxury 'Waitrose Duchy Organic' food brand, from the Sandringham estate in 1990.

Waitrose has a £3million-a-year contract to sell the brand's products which remains a separate entity to the Duchy of Cornwall despite the name.

In 2018, the prince's charitable foundation made £3.2million from profits made by the company, which is now Britain's largest own-label organic food and drink brand, Mail Online reports.

Products for the brand are sourced from UK farms and as far away as New Zealand.
