Prince Harry could lose allies as he continues to hurt family, expert warns

The Duke of Sussex is in danger of running out of allies if he continues to hurt the royal family, an expert has warned.

Prince Harry revealed earlier this week that he severed ties with Saudi billionaire Mahfouz Marei Mubarak bin Mahfouz a year before he was presented the CBE by Prince Charles.

The former royal reportedly had "concerns" over the businessman's "motives". The billionaire is currently listed as a supporter on the Prince's Foundation website, donating large sums of cash to restoration projects of particular interest to Charles.

The prince then gave Mr Mahfouz, who denies any sort of wrongdoing, a CBE in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace in 2016, Mirror reports.

The Mirror's Royal Editor Russell Myers said: "The Prince of Wales is caught between a rock and a hard place on how to deal with his son after so many recent and often hurtful outbursts towards the rest of his family.

"For while Prince Charles, according to those close to him, still 'loves and cares deeply' for Prince Harry, there is a certain unease at how frequently and with such ease he seems to wade into his family’s affairs.

"The family he upped sticks and left behind, if you recall.

"The latest souring of relations between father and son seems to stem from Harry attempting to claim he raised “concerns” about a Saudi tycoon at the centre of a probe into sizeable donations to Charles’s charity.

"This is at odds with Charles, or any of his closest advisors, who appear to have no knowledge of Harry ever mentioning anything of the sort.

"The Harry that presents himself in public, or through his vastly expensive lawyers, is quite different from the one who still engages with his father.

"The danger is he will run out of a number of already dwindling allies in his own family if he doesn’t see the hurt he is causing to others who have maintained a dignified silence."

It is claimed that Harry and Charles have only had a few "fraught" conversations on the phone since the Sussexes quit as senior royals back in 2020.

A spokesperson for Harry has been contacted for comment.
