How Prince George and Princess Charlotte Nearly Caused an Embarrassing Moment for Prince Charles

How Prince George and Princess Charlotte Nearly Caused an Embarrassing Moment for Prince Charles
Report: Prince Harry And Meghan Markle May Separate Royal Court From Prince William And Kate Middleton
According to the UK’s Sunday Times, now that Prince Harry is happily married with a baby on the way, it seems to be the perfect time for the royal siblings to step apart and form two separate offices. The families currently have one joint household based out of Kensington Palace under which they represent the interests of the Queen.

“The brothers have leaned on each other and looked after each other since their mother Princess Diana died over 21 years ago. But now they have their own families, they no longer rely on each other as before,” an insider tells the Times.

The Prince of Wales has caused disquiet in the past by expressing his commitment to organic farming, traditional architecture and environmental causes. In 2015, he lost a long court battle to prevent the disclosure of 27 letters sent to government officials on matters such as badger culling, fish protection, military readiness and the preservation of historic buildings.

The split would make two separate royal courts: one for Prince William, 36, and Kate Middleton, 36, as he prepares to eventually become King, and one for Harry, 34, and Meghan Markle, 37. The split would allow each couple to forge their own path and reflect their different responsibilities and interests, including charitable work. Markle previously stated that she wished to “hit the ground running” when it comes to supporting women’s issues and demonstrated that desire in delivering a powerful speech on the 125th anniversary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand while on tour with Prince Harry. The split will allow each couple to shift their priorities when it comes to different activities.

"He's pretty impatient, he wants things done by yesterday as I think everybody who works for him will tell you. But that's how he gets things done. He's driven by this, this passion inside him to really help," she said. "He would like to save the world."

“When William becomes the Prince of Wales, he will take on a lot of extra responsibility, including the Duchy of Cornwall and all that entails. Harry and Meghan have none of that and seem ambitious about forging their own paths. They have become different people with different outlooks on life. Splitting the household is the obvious thing to do,” the source says. Part of William’s upcoming duties will include taking on the title of the Prince Of Wales when his father, Prince Charles, inevitably takes the throne.

"I'm not that stupid," Charles said when asked if his public campaigning would continue after he succeeds his mother, Queen Elizabeth. "I do realize that it is a separate exercise being sovereign, so of course I understand entirely how that should operate."

The rumoured split is likely to take place next year after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcome their first child. The newlywed couple is expected to move out of their two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage on the Kensington Palace grounds and into a new royal residence or into Kensington Palace where William and Kate reside.

Despite the separation of the Royal Fab Four, the foursome is likely to keep their joint Royal Foundation intact under which their charitable endeavours are run, including their groundbreaking mental health campaign.

In BBC Ones documentary called Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70, Prince Harry praised his father Prince Charles for stepping in and walking Meghan Markle down the aisle on their wedding day in a last-minute casting switch.

Prince Harry is going bald for a surprising but touching reason, doctor reveals

Just days before their May 19 nuptials at St. Georges Chapel at Windsor Castle, Meghans dad, Thomas Markle, pulled out of doing the honors after suffering an apparent heart attack. He did not attend the wedding, either. Upon that news, Kensington Palace published a note on behalf of the Duchess of Sussex. “Sadly, my father will not be attending our wedding,” she said. “I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health.”

"Hes pretty impatient, he wants things done by yesterday as I think everybody who works for him will tell you. But thats how he gets things done. Hes driven by this, this passion inside him to really help," she said. "He would like to save the world."

When Thomas health became a cause for concern, the Palace released a statement that said, “This is a deeply personal moment for Ms. Markle in the days before her wedding. She and Prince Harry ask again for understanding and for respect to be extended to Mr. Markle in this difficult situation.”

One day before the wedding, it was formally announced that the Prince of Wales would escort his future daughter-in-law inside the chapel. The Palace said in a statement, “Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St. Georges Chapel on her Wedding Day. The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way.”

Harry and Charles exchanged words at the altar, but it was hard to make out what was said. “Youve gotta say thank you,” he reflected on the moment. “Just because hes my father that doesnt mean I can just sort of go, Okay, thats all, Ill take it from here.’ Err, no, that is what I wanted to say but erm…and I was very grateful for him to be able to do that.

According to the new BBC documentary, Prince Charles accepted the offer immediately and did not hesitate at all. “I asked him to and I think he knew it was coming, and he immediately said Yes, of course, Ill do whatever Meghan needs and Im here to support you,” Prince Harry revealed. 

The Duke of Sussex added, “For him thats a fantastic opportunity to step up and be that support, and you know hes our father so of course hes going to be there for us.”

I asked him to and I think he knew it was coming and he immediately said, Yes, of course, Ill do whatever Megan needs and Im here to support you,” Harry reveals in BBC One’s upcoming documentary “Prince, Son and Heir: Charles at 70”.

At one moment in the wedding, Prince Harry could apparently be seen mouthing the words “Thank you” to his father. “Just because hes my father that doesnt mean I can just sort of go, Okay, thats all, Ill take it from here,” Prince Harry explained in the documentary.

I think that was very touching, sitting where I was, you couldnt hear what he said,” Charles wife, Duchess of Cornwall Camilla said. “But afterwards watching it on the television, I… I think it was a very… it was a lovely gesture.”

We love it when two worlds collide. Here we have one of the world's top models, Naomi Campbell, with his Royal Highness Prince Charles, mingling together at a reception in Nigeria. The event was held at the British Deputy High Commissioner's Residence on day eight of Charles and Camilla's tour of West Africa, and was attended by key figures from Nigeria's fashion world. Naomi looked stunning in a black feathered strapless dress by the designer Ralph & Russo, paired with a beautiful pale pink jacket and black choker necklace. Naomi's gorgeous dress is from the Ralph & Russo SS18 Couture Collection.

Another “lovely gesture” was Prince Charles beautiful wedding gift to Meghan. It was revealed that he gave her a diamond tennis bracelet in the days before the ceremony.

We had a little look on the Ralph & Russo website, which reveals Naomi's dress is a black silk velvet column gown edged with ostrich feathers and features an embellished black crystal belt. Divine! The model's jacket is actually a blush pink 'gazar opera coat'. Who wishes they owned one of those? You know you've made it when you have an opera coat.
