Thanks. I remember years ago some Swedish journalists saying that CG and Charles don't get along and assumed it was true for the rest of the family as well since we have never heard anything about them spending time together outside official events. Glad to hear it's not true.
I've heard it's been said over the years too, and I wonder why. They are the same age and from CG's own account, he spend time with them when he was in his teens and apparently he appreciated Philip a lot. Maybe CG and PP they had more in common than CG and Charles, like cars, hunting, military, scout movement etc. And also the family ties by Queen Louise.
I think there has been rumors that senior royals encouraged some kind of matchmaking between Princess Anne and CG, same with Princess Madeleine and Prince William. Maybe that created some sort of tension.
It's been said they don't get along because of a different sense of humour and apparently CG thinks Charles is boring (or something like that, I don't remember the exact words). Like you said, he probably had more in common with PP than Charles. People don't necessarily "click" even though they are the same age.
I think the rumours of Madeleine and William were tabloid fabrications though, but who knows...
