Something that still makes me laugh, whenever I really think about it: the fact that the British papers don’t have anything else on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Harry and Meghan got a Netflix deal, they made their own money, they bought their own house, they have their own mortgage, and they’re paying for their own sh-t. The Windsors said “sink or swim” and the Sussexes swam far, far away and the whole thing triggered the f–k out of the British press. The British media has been left largely neutered when it comes to H&M now – members of the press are left suggesting new punishments for Harry & Meghan, or pushing pathetic attempts at emotional blackmail. Behold: Prince Charles “misses his grandson.”
Prince Charles has told of his sadness at not seeing grandson Archie for more than a year. The Queen and other members of the Royal Family are also said to be ‘very sad’ that they have seen so little of the toddler, who is now almost 18 months old.
His parents Harry and Meghan left for North America last November – living first in Vancouver, Canada, and then moving to Los Angeles in March. It has now been over 12 months since any of the Windsors has seen him, save for occasional video calls. And there is no suggestion that they will see him soon as the Sussexes are reported to be spending Christmas in their £11million nine-bedroom mansion in the exclusive coastal enclave of Montecito.
A Sussex source said: ‘They are now in their own family home, which they haven’t had properly before. It’s theirs, it’s their forever home, where they are going to base themselves. Archie is moving about and is lively and they’re having a great time.’ Harry and Meghan were due back in the UK in January, but that now looks unlikely.
A friend said: ‘The Prince of Wales enjoyed popping into Frogmore Cottage to see his youngest grandchild and is sad that he hasn’t seen him for so long. He has missed much of his development since he is now growing up in the USA. Other members of the family are very sad at not seeing him. Everyone really misses Archie – they feel it’s particularly sad for the Queen and Prince Philip. Harry always said he looked forward to raising his family with William’s – which of course is not now happening.’

I actually think Charles is mostly on Harry & Meghan’s side, but he’s still Charles and he still won’t stand up to William’s threats and tantrums and bullsh-t. So this is what happens: a disaster entirely of the Windsors’ making. Charles misses his grandson Archie? Charles could have stood up and helped the Sussexes when it would have made a difference. The Queen “misses” Archie? She couldn’t even be bothered to say his name in her 2019 Christmas address. Shouldn’t the Queen and Charles be more focused on seeing the Cambridge children, since that’s the bargain they made with William? They allowed William to push his brother out so Will could have the spotlight all to himself. Let’s hear more about how often Charles and the Queen see the Cambridge kids. Because I bet it’s not very often.
