Prince Charles


Royal family drama? Say it ain't so! 

A new report in the U.K.'s Daily Mail claims that Prince Charles is barely able to see grandson Prince George due to, what the publication refers to, as the "Middletonisation" of son Prince William's life. 

The Daily Mail reports that the Duke of Cambridge spends an "inordinate amount of time" with wife Kate Middleton's parents, Michael and Carole, leading the Prince of Wales to reportedly complain to his pals of the so-called "March of the Middletons," saying, "they never let me see my grandson."

E! News reached out for comment and were told by Charles' office: "We would not comment on the specifics of private arrangements. His Royal Highness enjoys an excellent relationship with his grandson."

Royal rumors aside, it is worth noting that William and Kate broke tradition in December when they declined to attend the annual Christmas dinner at the Queen's Sandringham estate, opting instead to host the Middleton's at their own Anmer Hall. 

The couple, along with their son, also recently traveled to the island of Mustique in celebration of Carole Middleton's 60th birthday. 

Following the birth of Prince George in July 2013, the 66-year-old royal told local media that he was "thrilled and very excited" over the arrival of his first grandchild. 

And in September 2014, after it was revealed that Middleton is expecting her second child, Charles called the news "splendid," adding, "we're very excited."
