The royal family is not above jealousy. In fact, many of their family feuds – including decades of disputes between Prince Charles and Prince Andrew – derive from envy. That said, they do not always maintain their family resentment. Case in point: Prince Charles is presumably very jealous of his son's father and mother-in-law, Michael and Carole Middleton.
Why is Prince Charles jealous of Kate Middleton's parents? Find out, come on.
Prince Charles's relationship with the Middleton
For the most part, the Middleton lords are far from real life. Of course, they attend family commitments such as royal weddings and baptisms, but they do not know that they join their daughter for events like Trooping The Color or even the Christmas church service. That said, Kate Middleton's parents are really part of the life of the royal family – especially the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. And, Prince Charles presumably has some problem with that.
Here is a closer look at their relationship, including why he might be jealous of Michael and Carole Middleton.
Prince Charles thinks that Kate Middleton's parents are their favorite grandparents
According to reports, the Prince of Wales resents Kate Middleton's parents because he believes they are his favorite grandparents. Apparently, the future king felt isolated from his grandchildren after Prince William and Kate Middleton decided to spend their family Christmas plans a year and spend their holidays with Michael and Carole Middleton.
Like many grandmothers, Carole Middleton often helps her daughter look at her three young children and presumably spends a lot of time with the princes and the Princess of Cambridge.
Queen Elizabeth's advisors snubbed Carole Middleton about the situation
Due to the fact that Prince Charles grew up in jealousy and fear of being overshadowed by Kate Middleton's parents, the Queen's advisers "they decided to ignore Carole Middleton on social occasions" Tom Bower, British journalist and author of Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles.
Prince William had to intervene
Apparently, Michael's feelings of resentment and fears of Prince Charles and Carole Middleton, being more like him, was so out of control that Prince William had to intervene. Prince William would confide to the queen for advice after becoming "enraged" about the matter.
The queen compensated for the accident and the so-called "ferocious offenses against Carole" by inviting her to take a walk around the Balmoral estate. He even invited a cameraman to film the exit and drove Carole around herself.
Polite in public
Even if it is not clear where their relationship is based, one thing is certain: Prince Charles and Middleton are generally educated about one another in public (e, if they are not, the public goes unnoticed). Despite the presumed jealousy of Prince Charles, the future king seems to put his feelings aside when the cameras are flashing.
The relationship of Prince Charles with Prince William and Kate Middleton
Michael and Carole Middleton are not the only ones that Prince Charles feels jealous in the direction. Apparently, he also thinks that the press and the public favor Prince William and Kate Middleton on him. For this reason, the prince was afraid of becoming overshadowed by his son and daughter-in-law in the past.
That said, the future king has improved his image a little and is now much more appreciated by the public. In addition, he showed a huge amount of love and support for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – who also received a huge amount of attention – which helped him gain admiration from the press and the public.
