Harry and Meghan's Africa documentary has taken the gloss off the Prince's own documentary, which covers his life's works as the Duke of Cornwall.
Prince Charles: Inside the Duchy of Cornwall — which aired on Thursday night in the UK — has been virtually ignored.
The source explained: “This is a documentary about his life’s work and it really meant a lot to him. It’s been completely and utterly annihilated, all because these two think they’ve reinvented the wheel.”
And while there are now further rumours of another rift between princes Harry and William, sources stressed Charles shares William’s very real concern for Harry.
One told The Sun: “Charles is worrying about Harry in the same way he did Diana. Publicly he will defend his son.”
The Queen is urging her two grandsons to sort out issues privately but is supportive of both.
A royal insider said: “The respect and admiration for the Queen comes because she rises above these sorts of issues. But the Queen is close to all her grandchildren. Family ties are strong.”
