There have been reports that Prince Charles and Prince Andrew aren't exactly as close as most brothers are.

In the book The Firm, royal author Penny Junor explained that Queen Elizabeth spent more time with her younger sons Prince Andrew and Prince Edward compared to Charles and Princess Anne.

The Queen's relationship didn't change much as her children got older and as a result, Her Majesty is still closer to Andrew than Charles. This may have led to some animosity between the brothers.

A royal argument

The Daily Mail recently reported that Princes Charles and Andrew had an argument after the latter didn't get his way. It all began when Andrew became so angry at a Palace aid because he wanted something done which wasn't possible.

The row between the Duke of York and the palace staff became so heated that Prince Charles had to step in to plead with his brother to apologize.

A Palace source claimed that Andrew refused to do so which then led to a heated argument between brothers. While explaining the situation, the source claimed that there was a "verbal dispute" because what the Duke wanted "wasn't possible."

The Duke explained the situation to the Prince of Wales and left it at that. There was no apology because there was nothing to apologize for.

A royal insider also revealed to the publication that Charles' decision to intervene in the palace row wasn't unusual. The Prince of Wales, being the older brother and the second most senior member of the royal family, often takes action whenever there's a dispute.

Mostly he is well informed and will intervene where it is appropriate to do so.

The sources confirmed that both brothers still maintain a good relationship.

Reactions

Twitter users have since weighed in on these reports and some didn't agree with Prince Andrew's actions.

Regardless of the rift, it sounds like the royal brothers are good now.

We can chalk it up to a simple case of sibling misunderstanding.
