Charles ignores questions on parenting skills after Harry blasts his childhood

Prince Charles has carried on his royal duties after Prince Harry appeared to blast his parenting skills.

The heir to the throne ignored questions about his son at an official engagement in Cardiff just hours after Harry said he moved baby Archie and wife Meghan Markle to the USA to "break the cycle" of "genetic pain" from his own childhood.

Aides to the Prince of Wales made it clear he would not be answering questions about his parenting.

Talking to actor Dax Shepard on the Armchair Expert podcast, Harry claimed his dad "suffered" due to his upbringing by the Queen and the late Prince Philip, then "treated me the way he was treated".

The Duke of Sussex said: "There’s no blame, I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody.

“But certainly when it comes to parenting, if I have experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering perhaps my father or my parents suffered, I’m gonna make sure that I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.

“There is a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on ­anyway. As parents we should be doing the most that we can to say: 'You know what, that happened to me, I’m gonna make sure that’s not going to happen to you'."

Charles was given a tour of the new BCB International headquarters in Cardiff, Wales – which makes survival gear and other protective, medical and defence equipment used by the Armed Forces, health workers and others.

He smiled as he unveiled a plaque to officially open the site.

Charles was welcomed by managing director Andrew Howell, whose wife Janey, and daughters Emily, 28, Gabriella, 26, and Isabella, 23, all hold senior positions in the company, which employs 80 people.

The future monarch, whose younger son quit official royal duties last year and then complained about being cut off financially in a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, was impressed that Mr Howell’s daughters were all involved.

"You don’t often get all three," he said.

"Does he pay you?” Charles asked the daughters. "In hugs and kisses," Gabriella replied.
