It’s a beginning. After attending Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee, many royal fans are asking what’s wrong with Prince Charles and Harry’s relationship? Royal expert Katie Nicholl explained to Entertainment Tonight on June 30, 2022 that Prince Charles was looking to mend their broken relationship.
Katie Nicholl told ET that the Queen’s special week provided the perfect time and place to rekindle their relationship. ‘I know Charles absolutely wants to start healing this fractured relationship with Harry,’ Nicholl said of their private meeting which ‘was really the start’ of his efforts to mend the fences and ‘paved the way for more conciliatory talks. “.
She added that Harry and Meghan’s children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, are a big factor in the mending process. “He loves his son but he wants to forgive his son everything. He wants to fix that relationship and move on,” Nicholl said. “A big part of it is he wants to be a grandfather and see those grandkids. That might mean a few more transatlantic trips, but he wants to enjoy that experience. I think a lot of people don’t see Charles as a doting grandfather, but he absolutely is,” she continued. “He has spent more time in recent years with the Cambridge grandchildren and is very, very keen to have a close relationship with Meghan and Harry’s children.”
Although he did not attend his granddaughter Lilibet’s birthday party which took place during the Jubilee, Charles still wanted her to take home a sweet memory. In images published by The Sun on June 6, 2022, several gifts were unloaded from Harry and Meghan’s private jet. A notable feature was a swing. It is believed that Prince Charles may have gifted them the swing, as he gave his eldest son Prince William and his wife, Duchess Kate, a similar swing whose names were engraved on the back in 2012. The Princess Eugenie also had the same swing. which has his name engraved on it in his back garden.
The platinum jubilee also marked Lilibet’s first time in England, after her family moved permanently to California in 2020 and her parents stepped down from royal duties. Lilibet, born on June 4, 2021, met her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II for the first time over lunch on June 3, 2022.
