The latest in royal relations comes later Sunday Times revealed that Harry’s charities multi-receiving at least £50,000 ($70,000) from Mahfouz Marei Mubarak bin Mahfouz, the controversial Saudi billionaire who was later honored by Prince Charles with a British medal known as a CBE after awarding 1.5 million pounds ($2 million) to Charles’ charities.
Harry countered the newspaper’s claims, saying he had “severed” ties with Mahfouz after casting doubt on his “motives”. He said he had nothing to do with what his statement specifically called the “CBE scandal”.
The unprovoked attack on Charles hidden in Harry’s choice of words is said to have left Charles “distraught”, and royal sources told Daily telegram that Harry’s statement that he had “expressed his concerns about the donor” did not reach Charles: “No one can remember that here,” said one.

“There was no way for Charles to fight back and defend himself publicly so he kept a dignified silence.
“The profanity about his American father could do a lot of damage to his reign. There have been many attempts to clear the air but they have barely said anything since the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral.
The friend added: ‘Charles loves his son very much and in return he wouldn’t like Harry. It’s that simple. He won’t participate because loving his son is the most important thing. ”
NS Telegraph added a quote from a source that said: “The Prince is absolutely in love with Harry. He will feel completely devastated by this; distraught. He will be on his own side if this means he also becomes more ostracized from his grandchildren. It is a sad situation. “
