Prince William is much closer to dad King Charles than he used to be

It's no secret that King Charles' relationship with his sons Prince William and Prince Harry has had its ups and downs and has been fraught with challenges, especially after Harry chose to step back from royal life.

But it seems that any difficulties that plagued His Majesty's relationship with his eldest son have dissolved as they have become "much closer" because of their shared passions, according to royal expert Jennie Bond.

Referring to how The Prince of Wales has followed in his father's footsteps and taken up a keen interest in the environment with the ground-breaking Earthshot Prize, Jennie explained why The King will feel nothing but pride.

Speaking exclusively to OK!, the expert explained: "King Charles doesn't suffer envy or jealousy of William.

"He's proud of William particularly when it comes to his work with the Earthshot Prize and the environment in general. I mean, how could you not be?

"How could you be so small-minded to be jealous when it's just expanding, enlarging, increasing the the platform that you've got and shining a bigger light on the issues you care about?

"The pair of them have absolutely become a lot closer recently thanks to these shared passions."

King Charles has dedicated the last five decades to protecting the environment and has become an important voice in the fields of everything from climate change to organic farming. He even launched his own sustainable market initiative, Terra Carta, in 2020.

In a promotional video for the campaign, the-then Prince of Wales said: "We’re running out of time because the necessary action hasn’t been taken, has it?" he said of climate change. "That’s the problem."

Prince William is the third generation of his family to take an interest in the environment, after his late grandfather and father and previously described them both as “pioneers in the environmental movement”.

A few years before William inherited the Duchy of Cornwall in his role as the Prince of Wales, his father became emotional discussing his pride that his son shared his interests.

"I couldn’t believe it, I was deeply touched and moved by what he said. It reduced me to tears because I suddenly thought well hearing that from him has made the last 50-years’ worthwhile."
