Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, are gearing up to visit Rwanda to represent Queen Elizabeth at The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting. Ahead of his trip, though, the future king has been “accused of meddling” after reportedly speaking out about the U.K.’s plan to deport Rwandan asylum-seekers (per AP News). Traditionally, royals are expected to remain neutral on political matters and are barred from influencing government decisions. However, a source told The Times that the prince allegedly called the deportation plan “appalling” and that he was “more than disappointed at the policy.”

Though Charles reportedly made his remarks during a private conversation, he has been blasted for commenting on government affairs. Nigel Farage, the founder of the Brexit Party (per Britannica), criticized the royal on Twitter. Farage wrote, “Unless Prince Charles wants to destroy the monarchy he had better shut up fast.” Another unidentified cabinet member responded by telling The Times, “Prince Charles is an adornment to our public life, but that will cease to be charming if he attempts to behave the same way when he is king.” 

Clarence House released a statement following this string of events, stating: “We would not comment on supposed anonymous private conversations with the Prince of Wales, except to restate that he remains politically neutral,” (via AP News). This isn’t the first time Prince Charles has been accused of meddling. According to The Guardian, the prince has previously been reprimanded for speaking out on issues such as climate change, integrated medicine, and genetically modified crops.
