Prince Charles gets irritated when fans try to take selfies with him, documentary maker John Birdcut, who followed the prince around for a year, told Vanity Fair.

“He gets irritated by people poking their phones at them.

“He wants to meet people, and it irritates him getting camera phones shoved in his face,” John Birdcut said.

Indeed, he’s not the only member of the British royal family to have expressed their distaste for smartphones/selfies. Prince Harry also does not feel good when a fan snap a selfie with him,Yahoo Lifestyle reported.

“Seriously, you need to get out of it.

“I know you’re young, but selfies are bad. Just take a normal photograph,” Prince Harry told a woman fan who waited so long to take a picture with him when he was at an event in Canberra , Australia in 2015.

 On the contrary his wife, Meghan Markle, used to love social media till she was disappointed with a wave of abuse and harassment.

 “She said you have to be really careful with social media,” a source told Yahoo Lifestyle.

“It’s important to feel really ok within yourself regardless of what happens on social media. You might get lots and lots of likes and one dislike and you feel terrible.

“All of it doesn’t really matter, it’s all about how you can get to feel within yourself. That was really powerful,” Meghan Markle,  who had her own blog called The Tig, was quoted saying.

However, the news media added, in January 2018 all of her photos vanished, just two months after her then fiancé, Prince Harry, released a statement claiming Meghan ‘has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment’.
