Prince Charles is, allegedly, begging Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to let him see Archie.
According to Woman’s Day, Prince Charles is desperate to reunite with his adorable grandson because he hasn’t seen him in over a year.
Even though the future king gets to chat with Archie on Zoom, he believes it’s different when they’re hanging out in person.
“Charles sees Archie in the odd Zoom call – enough to see that he’s growing up to the be spitting image of young Harry now that he’s nearly two. Charles is becoming a softie in his old age and he gets very emotional when he sees the tuft of red hair on the screen. Seeing Archie takes Charles back to his own boys’ childhoods,” the source said.
Prince Charles crushed by Meghan Markle, Prince Harry’s decision
Prior to Markle and Prince Harry’s confirmation that they won’t be returning to their royal duties, Prince Charles, allegedly, had high hopes that they would.
But now that they’ve made a decision, the future king is, allegedly, becoming more and more desperate to see his grandson. After all, he doesn’t know when they could reunite.
Prince Charles sad to see his grandchildren growing up without him
During a recent interview, royal commentator Phil Dampier claimed to know Prince Charles’ real feelings.
He said that the heir to the throne will be very sad to see his grandchildren grow up away from him.
Another said that the dad of two sees the situation as something very cruel.
“He isn’t getting any younger, and despite his stiff upper lip upbringing, he has a special place in his heart for all of his grandchildren. Charles is stunned that Archie is effectively estranged from his own flesh and blood, and it would be no surprise if this law danced on the edges of his consciousness. Hopefully, they will figure out their differences. Charles has no interest in an ugly custody battle, but the mere idea of invoking that law could make things very difficult for Harry and Meghan,” the source said.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt.
Prince Charles most likely understands that the Sussexes cannot travel to the United Kingdom right now because it’s still unsafe.
