Well, the ugly truth is that these two royals have a long record of feuds, contention, and difficulties that have strained their relationship. With hindsight, we'll take a look at their history to find out everything that has shaped their affinity. You won't believe your eyes when reading some of the things that have happened. Take a look! 



For starters, when two people have opposite personalities, some disagreements are more than expected. And this father-son duo in question have some considerable conflict in their similarities. According to Daily Mail, Charles once described his father as cold.

Moreover, the heir to the throne claimed that his father was a bully at times. But in his defense, the Duke of Edinburgh told royal biographer Gyles Brandreth 3 years ago that Charles was a romantic while he was a pragmatist. This might have been the reason why they never grew close. By Daily Mail's report, Philip added:

"That means we do see things differently. And because I don’t see things as a romantic would, I’m unfeeling."


Perhaps, Prince Philip has the personality traits mentioned above due to his rough childhood. He did not have a permanent home because he had to move through countries.
