Prince William came to surprise King Charles III after a fervent verbal exchange in which he showed his true temperament, which is reminiscent of the personality of his mother, the late Princess Diana, according to a new royal biography.
In the book “Our King: Charles III: The Man and the Monarch Revealed” by seasoned royal journalist Robert Jobson, it is detailed that Prince William has on occasion defied his father leaving Charles “shocked” by the heir’s level of belligerence.
Prince William has defied his father, King Charles
The book, which was published on April 13, offers a new perspective on the British royal family and its internal dynamics.
“William has even been known to speak forcefully to his father. One exchange between them was so heated that it left Charles shaken,” Jobson reveals.
William’s volatile temper was also recounted in Prince Harry’s memoir where he told of a physical altercation that occurred in 2019.
About that fight, Jobson explained that Charles expected his sons to work things out without intervention.
“The temperaments of his two sons are reminiscent of those of their mother Diana, which Charles had struggled to deal with during their marriage,” the renowned royal expert wrote.
William’s fierce temperament is backed up by Robert Lacey, the author of the book “Battle of Brothers,” who recounted in an interview the great impression Camilla Parker made on seeing how William addressed his father.
According to the author, “Camilla was shocked after marrying Charles to see the aggressive tone with which William sometimes addressed his father”.
The bad temper of the Prince of Wales has also been revealed by some former employees, who have stated that he has a very strong character and can shout when he is angry.
It is Kate who manages to control her husband’s “bad temper”. The princess is the one who keeps calm and is the one who appeases the prince, so said Tom Quinn, author of the book ‘Gilded Youth’.
However, Prince William has not publicly responded to any of the accusations made regarding his alleged bad temper.
