Prince Charles "may never forgive Harry" for dishing the Royal Family's dirt in his tell-all with Oprah Winfrey, an insider claims.
Their relationship has been strained for some time, but reportedly deteriorated further after Prince Harry's comments about feeling "hurt" by his father during the now-infamous March interview.
By the sounds of things, the two didn't manage to patch anything up during Harry's brief UK visit for Prince Philip's funeral, which doesn't bode well for a reconciliation any time soon.
But Charles' refusal to see eye-to-eye with his youngest son has been met with criticism from other senior royals including the Queen, an anonymous source claims.
"With the way things are going, Charles may never forgive Harry, which hasn't gone down well with Elizabeth," they told Us Weekly.
"She feels that he's putting his pride before the best interest of the monarchy. She has enough on her plate dealing with the loss of her husband. It's drama she can do without."
The insider adds Charles, 72, is "more stubborn" than Prince William, 38, who was seen chatting with Harry after the funeral service.
"They're definitely not at the point where they speak on a regular basis, but William wants to be the bigger person and set a precedent," the source said, adding William intends to "keep things civil" rather than "fanning the flames".

"Elizabeth is proud of William for taking the dignified approach, unlike Charles, who still hasn't forgiven Harry for dragging his name through the mud."
Harry and wife Meghan Markle sent shockwaves through the Palace – and the rest of the world – when they sat down for a candid chat with talkshow legend Oprah.
Among many jaw-dropping revelations, Harry's allegation that Charles had "stopped taking my calls" and cut him off financially seemed to confirm father-son relations were at an all-time low.
"It's really sad that it's got to this point," he said at the time.
"I will always love him, but there's a lot of hurt that's happened. And I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship."
Charles was "very upset" and "cut up" by his son's claims, sources said at the time.
Us Weekly had previously reported he did not manage to have any meaningful conversations with Harry while he was back for Philip's funeral last month.
"Unfortunately, Harry and Charles didn't resolve their differences when Harry returned to the UK," another insider said.
"There definitely continues to be a huge wedge between the two."
Representatives for Prince Charles and Prince Harry have been approached for comment.
