King Charles is "fed up" with the drama surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, an insider has claimed.

In the lead-up to Christmas, there have been several reports on whether or not Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will return to the UK, which is said to have "frustrated" the King.

There were also reports about a phone call that occurred between King Charles and his younger son on his 75th birthday.

When approached for a comment, Buckingham Palace refused to comment on a "private" call.

However, all the details surrounding the call were eventually released to different outlets by various sources.

King Charles was reportedly left "fed up" surrounding the constant drama surrounding Harry and Meghan.

An insider told The Times: "It frustrates him that personal issues intrude on the public duty.

"He’d much rather the focus was on his work, not the soap opera of the private life.

"It is always frustrating when family dynamics overshadow the public role."

It is unclear how the contents of the phone call were leaked.

However, before the call, the BBC was the outlet that reported that it would take place.

Royal commentator Richard Eden questioned how the UK media was able to obtain the details of the private phone call so quickly.

He wrote in The Mail: "How did the BBC know ahead of time that Prince Harry would ring his father?

"And how, afterward, did the Daily Telegraph discover the contents of a conversation to which few others can have been privy?"

It comes as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly "happy" to accept an invitation to spend Christmas in the UK, despite not being invited.
