Queen Elizabeth II had no choice but to live a young Prince Charles under the care of the nursery staff at home when she visited countries halfway across the globe, which might have probably caused him to think his mother as emotionally distant. Some fans are even wondering that, with his upbringing, he might also be distant to his two sons with Princess Diana, Prince William, and Prince Harry.

In fact, someone posted a query on the Q&A site Quora asking if Prince Charles even cared about William and Harry at all. Thankfully, his fans supported the heir apparent by basically saying that Charles’ love for his sons should be beyond question.

One Quora user thought that no one should be asking such a question. “What an odd question,” John Ferguson wrote on the site. “In every interview or documentary I have seen, they speak very fondly of him and are actually very protective.”

Diana Donald, another Quora user, also believes that Prince Charles loves William and Harry just like any parent would their children. There’s a ton of evidence that shows Charles’ fondness for his sons.

“There are masses of photographs of them all together having fun, showing affection, they have spoken of him with great fondness in documentaries,” Donald wrote. “He was very tactile towards them from the outset despite their mother ensuring she was photographed more often with them when things got rocky. But despite their problems, they shared responsibility throughout.”

Meanwhile, Quora user Jeffrey D. Stamp believes that Charles was just a victim and painted as an uncaring parent by the press. “It amazes me that The Prince of Wales still suffers the slings and arrows of Lady Diana's well-oiled and well-manipulated publicity machine, which blatantly catered to the wider public's already malformed opinions,” Stamp wrote.

“HRH Charles has been vilified, maligned, poorly portrayed and horrendously misrepresented by the TABLOID Press,” Stamp continued. “The Prince of Wales is a very fine, caring, involved parent, who fully realized in one, horrific instant - he would be assuming the roles of BOTH parents to his children.”

Similarly, Queen Elizabeth II was once panted as a distant parent when, unlike Diana, she refused to take the young Charles with her on her foreign trips. However, Margaret Rhodes, her close friend and cousin, defended Her Majesty’s decision by saying that leaving young children at home is the better option.

“People simply don't understand — it's much better for small children to be left at home in a familiar environment rather than drag them halfway round the world,” Mrs. Rhodes said, according to Daily Mail. “Why burden the children with such discomfort? Isn't it better to leave them with a nice nanny in a comfortable home rather than traipse them all over the world?”
