In his conversation with Oprah Winfrey, Enrique from England addressed with certain details the moment in which the relationship with his father, Carlos of England, is found, for which he says he feels “compassion”. During the interview broadcast Sunday night in the United States on CBS, the grandson of Elizabeth II assured that he will always love him but also recognizes that, between them, there is "much to solve." The Prince of Wales played a conciliatory role in the face of public opinion after the arrival of Meghan Markle to the British royal family, he had several gestures towards the couple and even breaking all the protocols, he accompanied the actress to the altar on the day of her wedding before the absence of his parent. But as Enrique has now revealed, the reality was different and continues to be so. "I stopped picking up the phone, he's trapped."
"I'm really disappointed because he's been through something similar, he knows what pain feels like and Archie is his grandson." Enrique from England made with his statements a clear reference to the loneliness and family detachment that his father lived when young and also how he had to fight to be able to marry like Camila, his youthful love and whom he had to renounce for a marriage of convenience. with Diana Spencer. But after this resounding statement he added: “At the same time, I will always love him. But there is a lot of pain, and fixing that relationship will continue to be one of my priorities. ”
The Duke of Sussex assures that the feeling that prevails when he thinks of Prince Charles and his brother William is one of“ enormous compassion ”, as has explained to Oprah. "My father and my brother are trapped," he assured. "They cannot leave." And he says he knows what it means to feel like this. “I was trapped too. I didn't see a way out. Know? I was trapped, but I didn't know I was ”, he reflected. Something that changed when he met Meghan Markle and decided to start a relationship with her. “Our worlds collided in the most amazing way.”
Carlos and Enrique have always maintained a complex relationship due to their very different personalities. The grandson of Elizabeth II was always a rebellious young man willing to break the palace rules and a child who suffered the death of his mother like no one else. He himself has said that for many years he could not face his departure which led him to feel lost, all this until after returning from Afghanistan he faced his demons and began to undergo therapy . Since then, not only has he frequently spoken of his mother in public, but he has constantly paid tributes to her through his solidarity tasks or in more familiar gestures. The day he and Meghan announced that they were going to be parents for the second time was the same day that Diana of Wales chose to reveal that Harry was on the way.
Enrique of England also revealed in the interview that they have not received any help since January 2020 economic of his father. as they had collected several British media in recent months. “Since we went to Canada we have been totally independent. We have been able to start this new stage thanks to the inheritance I received from my mother ”. In recent months, the Dukes of Sussex have signed important contracts in the United States, the largest with Netflix and Spotify. They have also participated as speakers and have launched a podcast .
Now, the Sussexes move differently: there is no agenda that defines them, they appear on televisions or public events that they like and decide themselves together with a public relations team, not palace assistants, and if they want to, as was the case on Corden's show, they're just wearing jeans and a polo shirt. An interview that aired days before the one offered to Oprah.
