While Joram earns his keep as Camber's morality chain, there is another consideration; as Haldane heir, it is Cinhil's duty to be king. Camber has already been through Cinhil's situation, having to give up becoming a priest after his elder brother dies; it is unlikely that he saw any reason to consult Cinhil - after all Camber wasn't consulted!
And of course, Camber has had 2-3 decades to consider the implications of his fate; it may not have occurred to him that Cinhil would need some time to process the decisions that Camber now considered instinctive.

I think also that Camber would have known in his younger years, even when he was in seminary, that there was a chance he might end up becoming the heir to Culdi.  With Cinhil, though, I'm not sure he even fully believed he was the last Haldane heir until Rhys and Camber sneaked him out of the abbey and pretty much force-fed him that information.  So while Seminarian!Camber would probably not have given much conscious thought to someday becoming Earl of Culdi, he would have known somewhere in the back of his head that there was a non-zero possibility of that event occurring, whereas Cinhil probably never once thought he'd be King of Gwynedd until it was about to happen in the ensuing few months.

So yeah, Cinhil got a decidedly truncated period of time in which to adjust to a huge change of status that he likely never expected to happen at all.

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Remind me, did Cinhil know that he was the Haldane heir before he was kidnapped?

I'm not sure.  He does say something fairly shortly after Rhys and Camber bring him out of St. Foillan's about his grandfather's story of having been the lone surviving Haldane of the Festillic coup, indicating he had heard the story but had not believed it.
