As the Queen’s eldest son, Prince Charles has been forced to step into his mother’s shoes, amid her ongoing health struggles. Speaking on GB News, former politician David Mellor has criticised the 73-year-old and accused him of being “full of self-pity” because “he thought he was bought up wrong”. Prince Harry voiced similar comments in an interview last year, with Mr Mellor suggesting the Duke was heavily influenced by the Prince of Wales’ own “moaning”.

Mr Mellor said: “The thing about Charles, you know, I have had meetings with him a lot of the time over the years, he was ahead of the game on industrial farming, ahead of the game on awful modern architecture.

“He’s an intelligent man.

He added: “[But] at the end of it all, Charles is full of self-pity.

“I think he thought he was bought up wrong, which is where Harry gets it from”.

Mr Mellor concluded by saying that the heir to the throne is “so near yet so far”, adding that “every picture tells a story”.

Charles, 73, is currently the next heir to the throne.

On Tuesday, Charles stepped in to represent the Queen at the State Opening of Parliament.

His eldest son Prince William and Charles’ wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, were also in attendance.

In her 70-year reign, the Queen has only previously missed the State Opening of Parliament two times.

Both of her previous absences were when she was heavily pregnant with her two youngest children, Prince Andrew and Prince Edward.

Prince Charles and his eldest son, Prince William, have been taking on an increasing number of engagements in the run-up to the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.

They will lead tributes to the Queen and join her on the Buckingham Palace balcony with all remaining working members of the Royal Family.

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle will not appear with them but will still be travelling to the UK with their two children to take part in private celebrations.
