Prince Charles is "very sensitive" and will be struggling to cope with Prince Harry's public criticism of the Royal family, Princess Diana's former vocal coach has claimed.
Stewart Pearce, the author of biography Diana: The Voice of Change, says 72 year old Charles will have "retreated" from his youngest son Harry, 36, after he spoke out about "genetic pain" within the family.
The expert told Us Weekly: "Prince Charles is a very, very shy man, a very sensitive and delicate man, but we see his public personality, but in private, he's immensely sensitive.
"When we're sensitive, if we're dealing with very strong, combustible emotion on the outside of us, people tend to go into fight or flight."
Stewart added: "He can't deal with it because of his sensitivity, so he hides. And what Harry's trying to do is to heal that.
"Not out of umbrage, not out of anger or revenge or criticism or accusation…I felt that he was just somebody saying, 'This is the way that it is, and this is why we want to make change'."
Referring to the moment when Princess Diana accused Charles of having an affair with his now-wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, Stewart said: "What he did was to shrink back and as a result of that became an aloof.
"Well, that doesn't heal the challenge that's taking place," he added.
The expert's opinion comes as a separate source has claimed Prince William is "fed up" of Harry's "media antics".

The insider told In Touch Weekly magazine: "The royal family, especially Prince William, is sick of all the drama being played out so publicly.
"They've agreed to put their issues [aside] in public, but behind closed doors, everyone is bracing for a showdown.
"[Harry and William's] relationship has been strained for months. They're due for a long talk to hash out their issues."
Prince Harry's relationship with his family was first reported to be fractured when he and his wife Meghan Markle decided to step down as senior royal members.
Since then, the pair have publicly gone on record to open up about life as royals and it hasn't gone down well with the rest of the clan.
It is thought that Harry and 38 year old William will come face to face for the first time since Prince Philip's funeral at the unveiling of a statue of their mother Princess Diana on 1 July.
