Detail in photo of Prince Charles' home sparks outrage: 'Shame'

Prince Charles, 72, has copped criticism online after royal fans spotted a telling detail in a photo of his luxurious private home.

Several snaps of the stately 'Garden Room' at Clarence House, which the future king shares with his second wife, Camilla Parker Bowles were shared to the couple's official Twitter account on Monday.

Family photos

While many followers of the @ClarenceHouse account were wowed by the room's plush furniture and gilded details, some honed in on the prince's choice of family photos.

"The Garden Room in Clarence House was created by Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother from two rooms and offers beautiful views of the garden," the tweet read.

"Today it is used for welcoming official visitors and features musical instruments, family photographs and works of art," it went on.

Positioned on a carved wooden desk near the window are two portraits of Charles' sons, Princes William and Harry who are rumoured to have been feuding for several years now since the latter's defection to the US.

'What a shame!'

The photo of Charles' youngest son sparked several outraged comments from Twitter users who criticised him for 'not supporting' Harry in recent times.

"Don’t post a picture of Harry if you can’t put pen to paper or open your mouth to defend him," accused one.

"Leave Harry ALONE. You didn't support him and Archie. What a shame! Repent!" added another.

During his bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey in March, the Duke of Sussex made the jaw-dropping claim that his father financially cut him off and stopped returning his phone calls after he and wife Meghan Markle left the royal family.

Other royal fans were taken by the room's size and grandeur.

"So beautiful, simply it takes you to the past..." wrote one.

"I can't imagine having to dust that room, it must take all day!" quipped another.

Charles had chins wagging back in May when he chose to showcase a single photo of four generations of the royal family — the Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George — during an official Zoom call.

Conspicuously missing was Harry, who had days earlier attributed his childhood "pain and suffering" to his dad in an episode of actor Dax Shepard's podcast, Armchair Expert.
