Prince Charles is said to have been left "upset" over his lack of involvement in planning a previous birthday party for Prince George, who turns nine on July 22.

One recent birthday for the young royal is said to have definitively upset Charles, with a royal source saying it contributed to his resentment of Kate Middleton's in-laws.

Planning of George's third birthday party was helmed by Carole and Michael Middleton, which is said to have distressed Prince Charles, who was given little to do in the planning phase in 2017.

The source says that Charles and Camilla were "invited" to the event organised by the Middleton family.

The source said: "Carole organised everything and Charles and Camilla were, of course, invited. He went, because he wasn’t prepared to miss out but Camilla didn’t go.

"Apparently she had other commitments."

While other commitments may have prevented Camilla Parker-Bowles from attending the event, Prince Charles was busy with royal duties while Middleton-planned party raged on, with food and games reportedly on hand for the children.

Instead, Charles spent the morning of the party at Clarence House discussing a rural protection campaign with Emma Bridgewater.

The reported feud between the Middleton in-laws and Prince Charles appears to be based off of the free schedule of Kate's parents, who run their own business and can be far more flexible than Charles' engagement-heavy days.

It means that Carole and Michael both have plenty of time to drop in on their grandchildren, whereas the Prince of Wales is often tied up with royal assignments, Daily Express reported.

The source added: "Charles didn’t want to miss his grandson’s birthday, but the fact that the whole thing was essentially a Middleton event with Carole orchestrating the whole thing is exactly what upsets him."

A family friend said: "Charles feels rather left out. He gets very little time with his grandchildren and I know he gets upset about it because he has said so."
