Prince Charles was "very upset" to hear his younger son claim to have been "cut off", an insider says.
Harry made some serious allegations about his family in last week's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, including that he had been left to fend for himself financially in early 2020.
But a source close to Charles, 72, has rubbished the claims, insisting Meghan and Harry were provided with private financial support "while they found their feet" after exiting the Royal Family.
"(Prince Charles) is very upset and cut up…but he's keeping his private life private and getting on with the job," the source told the Sunday Times.
"It was a surprise to hear he'd been cut off, given the bank statements."
The friend of Charles went on to say: "Harry said his father financially 'cut him off'. What f***ing hypocrisy.
"When Harry and Meghan left last year, they wanted to become 'financially independent'."
After stepping down as working royals and relocating to California with young son Archie, the Sussexes announced a series of lucrative deals with media giants Netflix and Spotify.
Harry told Oprah the streaming deals were never a part of their plan, but were made out of financial necessity.
"(The Netflix deal) was suggested by somebody else by the point of where my family literally cut me off financially, and I had to afford security for us," he said.
"But I've got what my mum left me, and, without that, we would not have been able to do this."
It's unclear whether Harry was referring to the the money they'd previously received from Prince Charles's income from the Duchy of Cornwall, the taxpayer-funded sovereign grant, or both.
Charles's accounts suggest approximately £5.6m was spent funding the activities of both the Sussexes and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in the year to March 2020, the BBC reports.
Harry elaborated on his poor relationship with his father in the CBS interview, claiming Charles had stopped taking his calls.
"I feel really let down, because he's been through something similar," he said.
"He knows what pain feels like, and this is… and Archie's his grandson.
"But, at the same time, you know, I… of course I will always love him, but there's a lot of hurt that's happened. And I will continue to make it one of my priorities to try and heal that relationship."
Representatives for Harry and Meghan have been contacted for comment.
