Prince Harry clashes with dad Prince Charles over upcoming wedding reception details

The Royal wedding has its own share of drama after all

Organising a wedding is not a piece of cake, especially when your father is the heir to the throne.

Prince Harry will marry stunning Suits star Meghan Markle in one of the highlights of the calendar year.

Despite the big day being more than four months away, the ceremony itself is already causing tensions at the Palace.

According to The Daily Mail, Harry’s dad Prince Charles is clashing with his son over some of his ideas.

One is that Charles is pushing for his former valet, Michael Fawcett, to be the chief organizer.

The idea has, however, gone down like a lead balloon with Harry and Meghan, who are said to want nothing to do with Fawcett, the aide so indispensable to Charles that he reportedly squeezed the royal toothpaste onto HRH’s toothbrush.

"The Prince of Wales thinks Michael is a wonderful events organizer," a royal source told The Daily Mail. "But the suggestion has created tensions."

The disagreement comes as Charles has handed major new powers to Fawcett, 55, who earlier resigned not once but twice from the Royal Household.

Harry and Meghan’s plan to have a “fun and quirky” wedding could be part of their dislike of Charles’ idea.

The pair is already believed to have snubbed the idea of a “white and classic” wedding pitched to them by royal aides.

Despite it all, the father-son duo shares a warm and cherished relationship, which was clearly visible when Harry turned radio host as he guest-edited Radio 4’s Today programme and called his father for a chat in December last year.

The pair joked about the influence of Charles’ opinions on his son, with the Prince of Wales saying it was “amazing” that Harry was listening to him at all.

Harry told him: “I do end up picking your brains more now that I ever have done. Coming from a younger generation it is incredibly exciting and I feel optimistic about the future because now is a real test, a real test for humanity to be able to swing that pendulum."

His father replied: “Well, darling boy, it makes me very proud to think that you understand.”

Harry joked: “And that I’m listening.”

A laughing Charles replied: “That’s even more amazing.”
