Prince Charles and his sister Princess Anne are feuding behind closed doors. Princess Anne recently expressed her backing for genetically modified crops, which Prince Charles is vehemently against. If that weren’t enough, reports indicate that Charles and Anne have been having arguments over a number of issues, including Brexit, the Scottish independence, and more concerns.
Princess Anne even told BBC Radio 4’s Farming Today program, “GM is one of those things that divides people but surely if we are going to be better at producing food of the right value, then we have to accept that genetic technology is going to be part of that. I do think that in the future gene technology has got real benefits to offer, which will maybe have an occasional downside, but I suspect not very many.”
She also added that she sees herself growing GM crops on her land in the future. Her brother Prince Charles sees things different. Back in 1998, he called GM crops “seeds of disaster” and has warned that they could cause an environmental disaster. What’s more, Prince Charles is a royal patron of the Soil Association, which has long campaigned against GM crops in Britain. GM crops have never been licensed in the UK. Clearly, Prince Charles and Princess Anne don’t see eye-to-eye on the issue, which many believe will lead to even more friction with the royal family.
Plus, this isn’t the only royal feud Prince Charles has been involved in lately. Back in November, reports indicated that he was at odds with his brother Prince Andrew over his two daughters, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice. Andrew was hoping to make Eugenie and Beatrice full-time royals so they could enjoy the same tax-funded benefits that Prince William, Kate Middleton and Prince Harry have, but Charles reportedly put a stop to it. He blocked the request, putting his 90-year-old mother in the center of a heated argument between her two sons.
So far Buckingham Palace has not made any comments about the report. Tell us, what do you think of Prince Charles and Princess Anne’s feud? Will this cause even more problems for the royal family? Will Queen Elizabeth have anything to say about this?
